    mod chip

    for some time, I've been wanted to play imported games, but there is a requiement needed for this, a mod chip, so I want to debate this about mod chips.

    do you think that the chip should be legal to install in game consels?
    would you install one in yours?
    should they make systems equiped with mod chips, so it can play both japanese and american games?
    explain, and give comments about this.

    Arigatou Nao chan for the sig^_^

    I think mod chips are just fine if that's what you want. The only thing is putting a mod chip voids all warranties on your system and if installed incorrectly can ruin your system. If I wanted to play imported games I would just buy an imported console. Some of the cheat devices(I.E.:Gameshark, Action replay) have features that allow you to play imports.

    Re: mod chip

    I think it should be legal... cuz I mean I dont see why the gov made it illegal to play games in other formats.... althought there are chips that copy the game and others that allow you to play non original games(the copy cd).... but thats totally different.... I dont see whats the problem on playing foreing games....

    It's not the goverment that's preventing the use of 'Mod' chips, it's the companies that make the game consoles. As an example, are you going to use that 'Mod' chip to play imported ROMS (which are rare and hard to find) or are you going to use the 'Mod' chip to run pirated copies fo ROMS. This is the primary reason why end user modifications are not permitted by the console game manufacturers...

    I don't see the big deal, just buy the Japanese version of the console if your main focus is imported games.

    Besides, mod chips can damage the console... <_<

    Re: mod chip

    I had a playstation that had a mod chip in it and it was great, the only proble I see with a mod chip is that it can allow a person to copy a game of his or her choice and allow them to play the copied cd inside there console! Now I have friends who have moded Xbox's and that pretty cool because they can copy the games to there hard drives, instead of popping in a disk all the time. But they don't take away form the game designers profit, because they still have to purchase the game! Good question!
