    i dont think sony servers will detect your running a mod chip.

    all they can detect is dodgy games i think, so as long as socom 3 is proper version then ya should be fine i think

    Hiya I just thought I would add to this topic!

    Do be aware that some online games won't work, the only one that I've found so far though is Monster Hunter, I bought a US copy (not pirate) and it wouldn't work on my chipped UK PS2. I do have an older messiah chip though so perhaps the newer ones will work.

    It worked perfectly on my US console though so it wasn't a problem with my Internet connection or anything like that.
