Here's a little tale to explain my question: About 2 years ago I got my PS3 (Motorstorm 80 GB ed.) and all was well for about a week. I got a defective model and got a swap for another Motorstorm edition. It lasted until about a week ago where it froze mid-game in Army of Two and upon resetting it, it refused to read any discs now. I called Best Buy up and now I can only get the downgraded piece of crap 80 GB with only 2 ports, a downgraded image card and worst of all, no PS2 compatibility. So, since I'm forced into this, I figured if I can't play my PS2 games on my PS3, i figured I'd get into the homebrew and modding scene of the PS2 (always good to expand your boundaries). I need your opinion guys/girls. What should I get. I've heard of some methods, but am not sure on what is considered "the best". I'm looking to spend minimum cash though. So, if you don't mind, throw your idea into the ring.
