    Morning!

    I have bought a few imported PS1 games in the past, and now I have a PS2 I would like to be able to play them too.

    Has anyone tried this? Is there a cheat disc or something that will let me do it?
    I have had a look on the web, and all I can find is to do with removing the front off your CD drive and stuff!! I just want to be able to do it easily!!

    Any ideas?

    Cheers,

    Paul.

    You have to make copies of them and patch them to PAL to be able to play them on a PS2 (unless you have the Messiah chip installed :D )

    Have a look at the PS2 'backups and imports' section on Lik-Sang

    PS2 impots are currently a pain in the bum - Messiah chip only as Alan says - but pretty much all of the chips do PS1 imports.

    I would reccomend getting one of the no solder efforts until the price comes down on PS2 import chips.

    Thankyou very much for the information provided guys, much appreciated.

    I will check out the links. This no-solder job sounds pretty cool. Is it a plug in jobby?

    Cheers,

    Paul.
