I've been pondering this for some time, and since this is the place for lots of Retro experts, I'm just gonna ask here
My husband got me a very nice red PS2 slim from Japan for Christmas. I love red consoles, and I got one game with it (Nights). But... I'd love to use it as my primary PS2. I have a nice PAL collection, and I still have my old silver one hooked up so I can play them - the red one is not being used.
So: Is there a way to turn the JAP PS2 into a PAL one? Or to get it to play PAL games with some accessory? (Stupid region codes...)
I know that there were some places some time ago that would convert your PS2 into a "plays anything" wonder. I don't need this, I just need it to accept my PAL games. Plus I don't think anyone offers that "service" anymore because Sony sued a lot of them.
I also don't want to take it apart and just switch casings with a PAL one, cause then I could have just gotten a case-mod.
