Q: What is a Mod Chip?
A: When installed in your gaming system, such as a PlayStation or XBox, a mod chip will allow you to play imported games as well as backups of your own games made on CD-r or DVD-r Media.

Q: Does a Mod Chip work on ALL PlayStation models?
A: Our chips will work on all PlayStation 2 models. See the Compatibility chart for details.

Q: Why do I need a mod chip to play imports and backups?

A: The Sony PlayStation checks the country code on the PS2 CD Roms / DVDs before it allows the game to start. If the country code on the disc does not match that of your PlayStation, it will not allow you to play the game. Similarly, the console checks to make sure you have inserted an original disc.

Q: Why are there so many different kinds of mod chips?
A: As Sony continue to enhance their consoles mod chip developers meet the demand with new and more sophisticated chips. Check our compatibility chart to determine which mod chip is right for you. For PS2 the easiest install is the Flip top Shell with Swap Magic Discs. The easiest play is the Magic chip, but these require soldering.

Q: Is it hard to install a Mod Chip?

A: No! It is easy to install a Mod Chip if you know how to solder. The typical installation time is 25-60 minutes - from unscrewing the first screw to putting the last screw back in. The installation requires you to solder from 4 to 23 wires to your PlayStation, depending on the version mod chip you choose.

Q: Are there any other solutions for playing my backups and imports?

A: Yes there are. We offer external Neo Keys and several other plug-n-play devices. Your best bet if you don't want to solder is the combination of the Flip top shell and the Swap Magic disc set. No soldering--just replace the PS2 shell and follow our instructions.

Q: To install PS2 Chip - How do I know where to solder these wires?
A: We supply you with solder, wire and online access to full-color illustrated, step by step instructions with crystal clear installation pictures to guide you through EVERY step of the installation process. With our pre-wired kits all you need to provide is a screwdriver and a 15-watt soldering iron! For the more complicated chips we also provide Clip Sets to make the job easier.
