with gamecube, you need a "FreeLoader" to play imported games...what about the ps2? is there a specific CD or mod I need to play import games, or can a PS2 play games from any regions? Question #2: I have a back-up of an import PS2 game (Japanese), and I'm wondering if such a CD/mod is necessary to play it or can I play it without any import problems? Question #3: I read on a site that a Gameshark 2 can work exactly like Swap Magic for back-up DVDs...is one better than the other? because there's a gameshark 2 available in the Best Buy a couple miles from my house, but if it won't work as efficiently as Swap Magic, I might order it online (since Swap Magic isn't available in any of the stores near my area).
