    I heard the new 50001 series plays DVD-Rs? so it can play backups without a chip? If yes, then why would people install a chip on a 50001? what's the point?

    pretty much all the versions would work with the dvd-r's but you still need a chip or a swap magic disk or some modification

    you can play backups, but you will need to use swap magic and buy a flip top lid or use a swip card or something, and with the 50001 series, you can only use DVD backups, not cd PS2 backups because you cant use the cd swap magic disc in the PS2 because sony put in a new security block for 3rd party discs such as swap magic cd and the version 2 gameshark, thats why you have to have the version 3 gameshark and can only use the DVD swap magic..

    The guy who told you that the 50001 Ps2 can play dvd-r meant to that it play DVD-R movies...for movies u dont need chip..for games u still need it or a swap magic cd with a flip top..If this version of PS2 would play backups without modification it will be easy and everybody will buy this ps2 and Sony didnt sell then this system if everybody makes backup without chip..so think before u ask something like this

    Peace,
