    Hi there. I have a V3 PS2 and would like a Magic3.6 (Or 3.1, but the 3.6 looks an easier install).

    I am in the UK and need to find a supplier who actually has what they say and dont change over the odds.
    www.modchip.com seem to be held in regard here but they seem to over-price compared to others??

    Anyone help me out?

    I got a magic 3 from modchip.com and it works perfect for me so you can trust that site. stuff is a bit on the dear side alright. however, the install might not be that much easier, it would be if you had a v5/v6/v7 ps2!

    Get them from mods4less.com genuine chips reasonably fast delievery(i live in Ireland took about 10 days)and best of all cheap, cheap,cheap about 30euro so I guess about twenty quid for you. Get the magic 3.1 harder to install than the magic 3.6 but its the better chip. The 3.6 is just the old 3 with a clip kit and so has all the faults solved by the 3.1

    Are you sure about the 3.6? I understood that the 3.5 was a clone of the 3 with clip-chip extras.
    The 3.6 (I hope, since I just ordered one!) is the 3.1 clone with clip-chip extras.

    I decided to go for 3.6 since those little hole solders (VUTQPONM) of the 3.1 look just damn-right scary!

    Oh well .. I'll soon find out :)

    Marcoabc, nice to see someone else from Ireland! I've been here for a few months and youre the first person from Ireland I've met, I'm from Tipp! :)

    _Filo_, The magic 3.6 is a clone of the magic 3.1 and it works great so don't worry!

    So mods4less.com is a legitimate site, we can order and we will get our mods?

    Anybody else ordering from that place?


    The prices seem to be cheap, i would rather ordered mine from them since i could have paid 7 USD less than what i paid at extreme_mods.com
