    I was hoping someone could give me some basic info, my daughter bought a PS2 from Argos and wanted to buy a game from the USA which I think would not play because of the Region, is there any way it can be played? what options are there to get it to play? thanks for any help.

    Well depending on what country you are in, if your in Europe or Australia, then it will play PAL, if Asia pacific then probably NTSC which is American, dvds wit ntsc format can be played on pal ps2 but games cannot, you can get the ps2 chipped so games from the us can be played on a pal ps2, just check what format the games are that your daughter currently has if any, if pal, then chipped needed, if ntsc then it should work fine

    Cheaper and much easier than a mod chip (as you dont need to open your ps2 up). Seach google for 'swap magic' and clue yourself up on it, then go buy one on ebay. very easy to use.:thumbsup:

    Swap Magic is definitely the way to go if you want to play games from other regions or backups on a slim ps2. I've been using it for a couple of years now and it's been great :thumbsup:
