I was just wondering how can we tell if our ps2 can play pal or ntsc games. Thanks!
where did you buy it? ntsc is usa, pal is pretty much everywhere else.
I bought it in HK. so does that mean it can play both type of games NTSC/PAL or will it have difficulties in reading the disks
no, it will only play games from your region unless you mod it. try this link to figure out what region it is (probably PAL) http://www.eurasia.nu/wiki/index.php?pagename=Ps2VersionTable
its already modded its just can't read USA games. any ideas how to solve this thanks
your pstwo is an asian version ,NTSC[J] it can play asian gameswhich are jap games with english text, goto playasia.com and you will see a korian version of burnout 3. it will also play jap games hence the NTSC[j] marking for your system.
it was the same for my n64, it was from hongkong and i could use it on an english power socket with out a stepdown. because the plug on the end was the same as uk ones.
you will have to mod ur pstwo to play usa games.
use swapmagic 3.3 when it comes out or use a mod chip.
hope this helps
thanks for the info i'll try the swap magic and see if this will work. This would be my last resort thanks again
as long as you have done the tape mod ,swap magic disks will work. just remember to check swapmagicfix.com for disks that dont boot. swap magic 3.3 will be out soon.
