    I fail to understand how come no one has found a way to burn PS2 games exactly as they are so that no mod chips are needed or any other software. I mean we have the same technology as they do to make these games....someone has got to leak out the encryption from these games manufacturers to let the little people save money on these games....Anyhow, we still need to rent them to burn them!!!

    Yeah that would be good but it will never happen, Ps2 games are not burned there pressed with a code on the disc that can not be copied.

    Incorrect, Primitive. Ever heard of HK silvers? Those can boot without any modchips needed... but only in their given region. PSX/PS2 discs all contain an embedded code with region information which can't be physically read or burned by home optical drives. But the protection itself is well-known-- which is why we have modchips (which simply injects the data the CPU is looking for at the proper time) and self-booting discs like the X-Change2 and the Swap Magic and Breaker Pro discs by, ahem, "non-authorized manufacturers."

    Commercial presses, however, *can* write this code onto disc. However, presses run from the tens to even hundreds of thousands of dollars, so good luck with that approach ;) The only reason you see HK silvers is because in places like China and Hong Kong, the pirates press games for a living, and pirated copies outnumber real copies 99 to 1.

    By the way, there's no need to start the same topic in multiple forums.
