    Hi Guys :hiya:

    Finally got round to buying myself a PS2 (already have a Cube and X-box) in Game yesterday. Got a nice platinum one , which i have to admit is one of the reasons for getting one , along with FFX , which was the main reason for getting this console.
    Now that i have the machine and eagerly awaiting FFX part 2 are there any other good RPG type games only out on PS2 anyone can recomend?
    I also have broadband and am on X-box Live , is it worth getting Socom to play online anyone know?

    Cheers

    Depends if you like to import, most of the good RPGs don't make these shores :(

    PAL
    Dark Chronicle 2
    Kingdom Hearts

    NTSC
    Suikoden III
    Xenosaga
    .Hack
    Disgaea
    Champions of Norrath (just released or about to be)

    .hack is getting a PAL release very soon :)

    You're right about most good RPGs not making it here though

    They're all 50Hz too.

    FFX PAL - I spent 180hrs on my first save. Had I played the NTSC version, I'd have saved at least a day of my time. Bah.

    FFX-2 is excellent, shame there are no extras for PAL players this time round. Can't wait for my copy of FFX-2 Last Mission to come - along with my Tiny Bees :D

    i've had mine modded with a DMS3 chip, works a treat! You can get the Ripper 2 chip as well now which is easier to install, does the same as a DMS3 and is cheaper.

    I wish i could say that i have a boot disk, but i have a Messiah Pro 2 modchip fitted which allows me to play any original PS2 or PS1 game from any region plus PS1 or PS2 backups any region too if you so wish.

    I had todo this as i import allot of my games from the US and was easyier to get my PAL machine modded then buying an NTSC system.

    Thanks

    Cheers for that. Is there a Datel wotsit that can be used to play US discs? Something i've never bothered about before but as a lot of good RPG's don't seem to make the european market i will have to look into it more me thinks.
