    i have old verison jap ps2(i think verison 3) with a messiah 2 chip fitted. My problem is that the laser has broken 2 times on me. It will cost me £60 to replace it. But the question i'm asking is should i just buy a new ps2 and get it chipped with the messiah 2 chip and bin the old one? or should i give my old one one more try?

    thanks

    I've yet to have my first PS2 die on me, only had it since X-mas this year, but I decided from day one that if/when it starts to give me troubles that don't justify spending money on it, i'll just have my local tech re and re the chip to a new machine. As by then, I'll have learned a lot more from forums like this one as to what versions in particular I should look for. And as the prices are dropping daily on new ps2's, getting it repaired for a 3rd or fourth time is like throwing good money after bad.
