    This may have been posted already... sorry if so....
    I recently acquired several NTSC original ps2 games. When trying them on my UK ps2 (which is chipped with a Neo 4 modchip), they did'nt work, despite several recommendations that they would.... is there anyway to get them working? would a DVD region X disc work???? please help as its a bit exasperating and annoying... cheers

    i got the same problem as u do..
    i got my ps2 chipped (i don't know it's name) that won't load an ntsc original game...
    apparently not all chips are compatible with imported originals...
    all u have to do is make a copy of the game and then it will work

    for the Messiah 2 pro you are looking at a standard £100 up and down the country.... maybe less if you are lucky......

    Actually a NTSC ps2 is as cheap as £105..... might be my last resort should the region X cd not work.......
