I bought a v9 messiah-ed ps2 and I just got it recently. I don't have any ps2 games yet so now I'm trying to play my ps1 backups and ORIGINAL games. And so far nothing works. By the way, I purchased it from xmodd.com. If you're planning to buy anything from there, you should hold you horses. Because I don't know what they will do with mine. I mean it's supposed to be able to boot directly any ps game. I followed their website instruction how to turn it on. Am I overlooking something? I mean I don't think I am. Atleast this baby should be able to boot original ps1 games. Man... this sucks. I hope xmodd had better straighten this out. If you had bought a system from xmodd.com, please let me know how your system is doing. Right now I might as well have bought a broken ps2 for over 300 bucks. This thing doesn't do anything. Alrite. Have a good thanksgiving weekend everyone.
