Hie Guys, got a couple of PS2 queries because I'm thinking about purchasing one.

1) Where is a good place to buy special sets that can play just about every game on the market, including those genuine replica ones. :think:

2) I'm thinking of using the PS2 as a DVD player as well, how is the video quality and is it a good idea to use it as a DVD player ? I dont watch often, maybe once a week max.

3) Whats a good price to pay for a new moded set ? and also, for a new non mod set ?

Anyway, if anyone has one for sale, please give me a buzz at 98553899 or marcwangheng@gmail.com . I wanna buy one within the next 2 days.

Go get it in Malaysia. You can find some moded sets in Singapore but relatively speaking, it's more ex than Malaysia. Plus Malaysia has all the games you will be looking for as well.

They can mod to your specs that you want too. DVD is DVD. It's quite good quality as it has
all the function as any DVD player. Malaysia is selling about MYR900 for mod sets with 20 games free of your choice, 2 controllers, 2 x 8MB memory cards.

We do not get tax maybe only GST if the custom wants to make life difficult for you but you can ask the seller to write a receipt less than SGD400 lor. The only problem is not to bring in any pirated software as the customs will confiscate it. So beware........

Now PS2 is selling without mod for abour only SGD$320 original set from Sony Centre

PS3 has projected to be selling about USD$800-1000 but comes in BlueRay Disc

Yeah I bought my PS2 set 4 years back for $850 but it was worth it as it's Japanese set, second batch run. Bigger heatsink and heavier set which has better electronics items.

Even the mod person from JB ask me where I got my set.....and he actually offered my to buy my set up! So funny......

totally agree with you. GT4 and burnout rocks....
PS2 here is about 300 to 350 sing if i remember correctly (slim version) but just bare min. I was asking about 2nd set so didn't needed games/controllers.
Hoping to buy ps3 but i think better wait a bit or else kenna chop.
