    You can find swap magic and modchips in some small stores...mostly not though. Big companies definally wont have them, since there mostly illegal. Modchips for PS2 are hard to install.

    Besides you don't have to open your PS2 with swap magic and void your warranty. I got mine from www.awsatellites.co.uk free shipping anywhere and they even accept paypal. Just remember to specify whether or not you need the NTSC or PAL version.

    Swap Magic you need one other modification on your PS2. They usually sell packages. So find out what version your PS2 is then you can find out what you need.
    http://www.mod-chip.com/ps2version.htm

    If you have a fat PS2 it will be a fliptop case and Swap Magic
    A slimline it will be magic keys and Swap Magic


    But if you have extra money getting a quality mod chip installed is by far the best option. It is better than Swap Magic in every way.
    Crystal Chip V2.0, Matrix Infinity or DMS4 Pro SE are the top 3
    Duo 3 is the best cheap chip you can buy.
    But unless you have very good soldering skills you will need a professional to install it.

    I got my last of swap magic off ebay years ago.
    The inside rig cracked the other Day.
    I never see it on ebay any more so I went with the address steimy provided.
    Thanks steimy I hope this site is cool I never order things online.
    I'm sending them a check there in Austria,Europe. I'm in the USA.

    Will they be able to cash my check?

    Thanks

    the link i provided was just so you could check your PS2 version?
    I do not know much about the store so i would contact them.
    Since prices are in both currency types i would figure it would not be a problem. But i would have ordered from a store in the US, like Teammodders.com.
