    Hi, I've been reading up here on modchips and it is apparent that many people regard the DMS3 chip as a much better chip for modding. The only question I have is, why is it deemed so much better as opposed to the much cheaper Magic 3.1U.

    Any help or comments at all would be appreciated.

    i think one of the main reasons is it has a flashable firmware and stuff, from what i've read, if all you want to do is boot backups, then magic is the way to go, but if you want to have all that extra sutff and are actually going to use it then dms3 is better

    it has all the region free dvd stuff so you can play any region dvd's on your ps2, and you can flash upgrade it, so if they make a new ps2 software hack or find a glitch with the chip software, you can just upgrade the chip with the newest stuff and you have it, don't really know what kind of advancements they're making, personnaly i'd rather use the magic, cause i have no use for the extra stuff dms3 has
