    PS3 mods

    I am curious about modifications to the PS3 - specifically I intend to use it as a Blu-Ray player and am wondering if anyone knows whether a mod to the machine will enable it to view discs from all over the world?

    Thanks,
    -- John.

    I thought PS3 was Region Free?

    Really? The girl in EB yesterday told me it wasn't. But she isn't necessarily the definitive source of information...

    I've just done a bit of research on the net and found that it may be region free for gaming but maybe not for blu-rays... I can't find any straight forward answers...

    Here's to hoping it is! If so, I'll consider it bought!

    EDIT: Just found this somewhere:

    IGN writes that "In a Q&A session following the platform keynote address at GDC 2006 this morning, Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios President Phil Harrison confirmed what was heavily demanded for import gamers all over the world and yet previously thought unthinkable for a major corporation: the PS3 will be region-free for gaming." There's no chance that the MPAA members would allow the same for movies but at least it's a step in the right direction.

    "During an interview with Wired, Sony’s Phil Harrison confirmed that the PS3 will have region free games, including those downloaded from the PS3 online service. This means games from other territories can be played on a console, which is good news for the gamers primarily interested in importing Japanese games. Harrison also said that Blu-ray movies will not be region free."

    Hello, new member here

    I have recently got a modded ps2 as a 'hand me down' from a friend.
    All I know of the PS2 is that it reads any copied / normal CD's, and it is the original first gen (thick one) from Japan.

    My question is:
    Without having to buy a network adapter, is it possible to play games from my 3.5 inch external HDD drive/case that functions via USB.

    I do not know of the modchip model or brand

    If you can instruct me on how to find out the model/brand or to let the USB drive be recognized (the external NTFS formated drive I plugged in was not recognized or even show, via front USB ports [marked by blue]) I would be very thankful, as the PS2 tends to scratch some of the disks if I play it for a prolonged period of time

    You can, but it requires software (such as HD USBeXtreme) to recognise the drive and give you a menu system etc.
    This is not 100% compatible with all games either.

    You can't trust a word Sony says, the PS3 fully incorporated regional-lockout for DVD, Bluray, PSX, PS2 and PS3 games. Most (or maybe even all) PS3 games to date have been released as region-free, just like certain DVD publishers will release most if not all of their DVD's region-free. The PS3 is not region-free.

    It's a much better idea at this stage to buy HD-DVD. After all you could blow what, $1000 for a bluray computer drive; and the Xbox 360 HD-DVD drive is only $250 and works without modification with a PC using downloaded drivers.

    A single-layer Bluray writeable disc holds either 23.3GB or 25GB. The much cheaper single-layer HD-DVD-R holds 15GB, and their RW holds 20GB. For data storage that is ample.

    The BD and HD-DVD players can play 1080p right, but that's only 1080@24p. They can only play 25 and 30 fps interlaced; ie 1080@25i, 1080@30i. Now it's been demonstrated that there are 1080p TV's out there that can take this interlaced input and convert it correctly to 1080@25/30p; but it's still unacceptable to say that a format supports 1080p when it ONLY supports 1080@24p.

    http://gizmodo.com/gadgets/feature/f...ual-238336.php

    The video codec's used by HD-DVD and BD are the same: MPEG-2, Microsoft Video Codec 1, H.264 / MPEG-4 AVC. They’re both capable of the HD resolutions 720p, 1080i and 1080p in addition to the SD resolutions. At HD resolution HD-DVD and BD can store more then 4 hours on a single layer.

    The audio formats are the same: Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby Digital, DTS-ES.

    But then they're not the same, as HD-DVD requires that DD+ and Dolby TrueHD are supported by ALL players, whereas BluRay doesn't like so:

    Lossy formats:
    DD – Mandatory on both formats.
    DTS – Mandatory on both formats.
    DD+ - Optional on BD, Mandatory on HD-DVD.
    DTS-HD - Optional.

    Lossless formats:
    PCM – Mandatory.
    Dolby TrueHD - Optional on BD, Mandatory on HD-DVD.
    DTS-HD – Optional.

    It's like DVD has DD (Lossy), DTS (Lossy), and PCM (Lossless). Both DD and PCM audio support was mandatory on all DVD players, but DTS support isn't. Same thing with the two HD formats, except that HD-DVD demands more support for high quality codec's then Bluray. As you can see from my link above, at the moment the audio on current releases isn't better (although video quality is better) - but with that said, there are already releases with Dolby TrueHD; and as time goes by you can expect studios to make full use of the audio capabilities.

    The difference in Video or Audio quality really is miniscule, the only real difference is in SD playback and in the extras which HD-DVD has all over BD. Not to mention that BD uses extreme copy protection, which is never good for the consumer.

    Do I need new mod chip or LENS?

    Hi there,

    I am new to this but I need a simple question answered.
    I had a mod chip put into my slimline PS2 a few years ago but it has never worked 100%. It only plays DVD not CD format games, sometimes it freezes, does weird things etc etc... and I then take it out clean the disk put it back in and works most of the time. Sometimes I even have to reburn the game.

    Now is this the laser problem? or the modchip? I always thought it was the modchip ut when I went into ebay I saw that they sell the laser unit and the problems they describe are the same ones that I am having.

    Please assist?

    Thanks

    Which laser to buy?

    Hi All,

    I have done a little research and have found that the following lasers are for the SLIMLINE SCPH-700002 models.
    PVR-802W and the SPU3170.

    There seems to be price differences depending on where you buy them. e.g EBAY. Does anyone have any suggestions for me before I buy? I've seen some that are refurbished but brand new.

    Thanks

    The pS2 console comes out with 2 types.... you need to check what type of laser yours has, and replace is the with the same one...

    pvr is cheaper and better but if is console dont take a pvr then you need the spu laser

    Ebay is an expensive way to buy them

    PVR laser better...

    Hi there,

    When you say that the PVR laser is better than the SPU, in what way do you govern that? Is it better quality? Will it last longer? Please explain?

    I noticed that the PVR is cheaper, I was always under the impression that the cheaper one was not always the better one.

    Thanks

    Firstly its not really a matter of which is best it is a matter of which which suits your machine , they came out with both but you need to detect which one you have and buy that one.

    the opinion of pvu being best comes from a person who repairs them for a living, perhaps i should have used quote tabs. i will ask him to elaborate when he gets back.
    edit:
    ok heres the techs opinion

    ""although all lasers are different and its difficult to generalise, the pvr is 'generally' more forgiving on media in it has a wider focal range and that reads damged/worn disc better. Having said that, if you run rubbish in your console you will likely burn out any laser eventually no matter what laser you buy."

    Fan mod?

    does any one know where i can attach the thermo fan on my ps2 ? The place where it was attached is now broken and i need to find a new place to supply power to it. It needs to be a place that will not interfere with the normal functioning of the console. Somewhere circuit protected would be good?

    Hi

    Im just looking for some advice on mod chips for PS2. Has anyone here bought a memor32? is is worth it? My PS2 is only a couple of months old, so i really dont want to void my warranty unless i have to. I'm in a regional area and I dont know if anyone in my area installs mod chips, so it would probably be cheaper to get the memor32.

    thanks, brockmonsta
