This question has probably been asked a thousand different times in a thousand different ways. But I have searched through the threads, and I really haven't found a decent answer to my question. So don't shoot me if you happen to have gotten this question before. It happens. I recently bought a Playstation 2 (Version 7), and I am planning on purchasing a few imported Japanese games. I realize that there's no easy way to get a PS2 to play imports, so I'm planning on buying a chip/swap disc. I'm rather hesitant to void the warranty, but I'm not altogether unwilling. I'm not interested in backups. I don't plan on making any. I just want to know your opinions on the best mod to play imported games with and where the best (and hopefully cheapest) place to purchase one would be. Should I get a flip top, a slide card, or should I just go ahead and get a chip that needs to be soldered? Let me know what you think, because I'm completely in the dark about what to use! I just want to play my imports!
