Hey everyone just wanted to say that I ordered HD advance 2.0 a couple of days ago and should recieve it tomorrow. i've had my ver.7 ps2 modded for about a year now with a magic 5 chip and have been enjoying the benefits of not scratchin up my original games..which rocks. and did alot of reading up before i made this purchase just to see what it was all about I've noticed that alot of people say that they have gotten HD loader or HD advance free, but i feel that this product should be payed for and NOT pirated. I feel this way mainly because this product is really only one of a few of its kind for ps2, so we should support it to the fullest. i've seen alot of modded Xbox's with all the bells and whistle's and have kinda felt like my good 'ol ps2 has been put out to pasture. but with HD advance it kinda renews hope. so go buy a retail ver. and help theese companies out so they'll keep giving you awesome products like HD advance.
