    from the perspective of someone who has modded several xboxes successfully, I find the ps2 much more difficult, like you said it is alot smaller, but stick around this site and they will never steer you wrong, once you get the hang of it, it's all good!

    if youve done xbox well, then ps2 shouldnt be too hard. i went from first time solder of ps1 directly to ps2. i ended up making it work.

    yeah, they mod them for as a hobby and have been doing it for a long time. I could never make one look like that, so i just let them do it for me.

    If you just plan on doing one chip, I'd say it's more cost effective to have a pro do it. I started off modding my brother's PS2, and I spent more on all the tools/wire/etc that it would have cost to get it done by someone else.

    However, I enjoy modding PS2's moreso than Xbox's. You definitely feel accomplished after all that work.
