    Question Mark

    I just helped buy my friend a PS2 for his birthday, and we played it at his place for 6 hours. i need to get one! now!!


    I'm probably gonna get it from Best Buy. then get some wireless controllers and ddr pad online
    here's my questions:

    i'm not gonna buy games. so i have 2 options right? mod chip and burn dvd's or external hdd?

    i really like the external hdd. do i still need a modchip for that? do i need to buy anything? i have a 250gb hdd and an enclosure with usb 2.0. does the slim ps2 have a usb port??

    is it true that not all games will play off a hdd? which games? i hear modchip is the most reliable method. hmmmm

    help

    what's the cheapest method for me, and still allow me to play everything

    also, for the older games (ffx and x2, mgs, etc), i might not be able to find good torrents for them. i'm probably gonna rent or borrow them, and burn them or rip them to hdd. how do u do that?

    i'm a noob


    also, modding ps2's doesn't screw with the online capabilities right? modding xbox kills xbox live unless u that other thingy that's really tricky.

    the slim ps2 is so sexy. oh god *drools

    do u guys expect a serious price drop anytime soon? i'm afraid i might not be able to wait that long

    ok, just checked this out:
    http://www.hdadvance.com/usb_extreme_how-to-use.htm

    seems like i got the right software (no, i didn't buy it). i hope i go the right one. it's USBextreme game installer... is that it?

    should i get a modchip too??

    also, does anyone know if running off hdd or modchip kills the ethernet and multiplayer?
