I've been planning to chip my PS2 (v5/v6 bought 5 years ago) for quite a while now. What I want to do is play backups of PS2 and PSX games (both PAL and NTSC), as well as their original counterparts. Also I would like to run emulators like SNES Station on the machine for those retro moments =) Ease of use is an important factor - the backups should boot as if they were originals, without messing around with menus or button presses =) HDD support isn't crucial since I don't know if want to pay for a harddrive, network adapter etc. to get things going. But Crystal Chip 2.0 is the only chip that will allow me to use a HDD to boot games, right? The Crystal website says that both 1.2 and 2.0 has "HDD support", but I guess that doesn't mean booting games and that I need HDLoader to do such a thing...? I'm considering: Crystal Chip 1.2 + installation = $100 Crystal Chip 2.0 + installation = $128 DMS4 Lite S.E + installation = $136 (these are swedish prices converted to USD) Which should I choose?
