    Ive read many guides and I cant determine for sure which type Ive got, it seems to be a combination of different versions. The SCPH is 30001 (no R), GH-004, 10 screws in the bottom, it DOES have an electrical harzard sticker, and the serial # starts with UO.

    If it has 10 screws in teh bottom it is a V1,2,3. I dont think there huge differenced between them besides they are really old.

    I looked at some diagrams and it doesnt match 1,2, or 3... am I supposed to turn this upside down or take it off or anything? It looks closest to a V2 but it doesnt match with the tracks?

    its a 1-3, your better off selling it on ebay (since its really old) and buying a new one.

    It is defineetly a V1, this is how I narrowed it down for you:

    1) model #: SCPH-30001 (this model # is used for several models up to V5).

    2) The motherboard style is a V1 - V3 ONLY.

    3) BIOS # 010 (used on V1 & V2 ONLY)

    4) Motherboard # GH-004 (used only on V1's)

    Therefore you have a V1. I would be interested in purchasing it from you.

    Hello, what you people have been saying has intrigued me. Is the V1 PS2 really worth something?
    Cause I would love to trade mine in and get one that actually plays ff7.
    So to clearify my question is it realy worth something? and if so how much would you say.
