    you must use the pal swap magic for pal ps2's and the ntsc swap magic for ntsc ps2's.

    You all got shafted,
    when you get it you will notice the English on the box & in the instruction manual is dredful,thats because these are produced in asia,where they are dirt cheap.
    i got mine 6 weeks ago for 60 pence(1 us dollar!!) in Hong Kong (kowloon night market) aparently if i had bartered with the guy i could of got it for less,one guy i know paid 12p for his.
    thats why i bought shit load & stuck em on e-bay for £15 a pop

    I got my Slimtool and sm3.3 SET
    from

    http://www.pop-uk.info
    for 24.50

    and received them in three days, but then they are in the UK, so am I. It sucks to have to buy from another country, surely there must be an official retailer in canada?

    they store didn't do anything it's the goverment so don't blame the store blame it all on the government concidering all the sites sell them in the range of 20-30 dollers the government puts the taxes on them witch makes it go to around 60 bucks, whats stupid is you can't put taxes on illegal items and we all know swapmagic is illegal, i doubt the stores going to refund you or site anyways, if it was a store you can actually go to maybe but a site witch the building is miles and miles away from you it's about 1-400 chance you will get a refund concidering it was the government that did the gst and pst and all this and the post office to there all against us
