Hello, I know that I probably didn't look deep enough into your site, and for that I am sorry, but I have some questions. I am a broke college student who scratches his games ALL the time, so I don't want to buy new ones. http://www.mod-chip.com/index-cart-us.php?go=en/select_ps2_main.htm This is the chip I am thinking about. I can get it cheaper elsewhere, but you got the idea 1. I am a total newb when it comes to soldering. I have done it once before in my life, and it was 5 years ago. Thus, I am wondering if solder the chip onto the ps2 is easy enough for me to do with little experiance and, if it isn't, the likelyhood that I can seriously mess up my ps2 to the point that it won't work anymore without or with the chip in it. 2. I play online games a lot, so will I still be able to do the same? Reading about this chip, it says it switches off after booting, so will I be able to go online with my games? Would I be able to do this with just the original disk or the backup also? 3. I don't know much about the format of ps2 games, but I would think that some of them are dual layered discs. I have a dual layer dvd writer, but would my ps2 be able to read them? Is there even dual layer ps2 discs? 4. Will my ps2 function normally as if there is no mod chip in there? 5. Any other problems I should look at?
