I was curious about the PS2 region coding, and whether or not European imports can play on the US PS2 or not. I know on some games you can do the whole "Magic swap disc thing" and everyone says that, but I honestly don't know the first thing about that, it sounded very complicated and confusing, like you have to take apart your PS2 and crap.

So anyway, some of the games I know were released in Europe, so I was wondering if the European PS2 games are copatable on the American PS2. Anybody??

EDIT: NVM. Region coding doesn't work, btwn Europe and USA, so I'm stuck having to swap discs. I already made the slide tool, thing is though do you have to have the Magic swap disc thing, or can you just have anything in before swapping the disc for an import?

I thought ''Magic swap disc'' was for the converted PS2??

I'm pretty sure you need the Swap Magic Disk. The other way (Putting in a EU Disk, then swapping for an American one after the boot-up) only works on the PS1, and really isn't very reliable.

Honestly, the easiest way would probably be to buy a Mod chip, open up your ps2, and solder it on there. If you haven't ever had any experience with soldering stuff, it'd probably be better to get someone who has do it for you. I think it's easier than having to swap disks every-time you want to play a game, but that's just me.

Since you have the fat PS2 then you do have to do a lot of shit to it. The slim one, however, is just getting the new cover, putting the swap magic, wait until it stops spinning and put the disc you wanna play. It worked with a japanese Naruto game my friend has so thanks to that I'm planning on getting Tales of Destiny: DC.
