There is no need to buy a flip top. the reason I say that is I found out a new way to play my imported and backup games with just the two swap magic disc's. Alright what you have to do is open up your PS2 and the remove the cover that holds the white disc, put the swap magic cd inside and put the cover that holds the white disc back on and press reset. When the screen comes up that says insert disc you remove the cover that holds the white disc and put in your imported or backup game in and put the cover back on and press X and you are ready to go. That will save you atleast $29.00 and you don't have to buy the flip top.
