Three first edition of the PlayStation 2 (model SCPH-10000, SCPH-15000 and SCPH-18000) sold only in Japan and had Dev9 expansion port, which is in the current models of the PlayStation 2, instead stood PCMCIA port. These models are available in PCMCIA adapter Dev9. SCPH-10000 and SCPH-15000 does not have a built-in player software for DVD playback instead encrypted player was copied to a memory card from a CD, supplied. V3 was significantly different from previous models of its internal structure, there have been several interconnected printed circuit boards. Starting with V4 everything but the power supply has been placed on a single charge. In V5 were minor internal changes. The only change in the V6 (sometimes called V5.1 it) was the position of the conclusions leading to the on / reset - this was done to combat the use of mod chips. V7 and V8 were also very similar. With version V9 (SCPH-50000 / SCPH-50001) assembly PlayStation 2 has been moved to China, it has been added to the infrared port for remote control DVD remote control, removed the FireWire port, added the ability to read DVD-RW- and + RW-discs, added progressive scan for DVD and put less noisy fan. V10 and V11 have minor changes.

In September 2004, Sony introduced the third edition of the main consoles (V12, model SCPH-70000) - much smaller, thinner, quieter than the old version. In addition, the new model includes a built Ethernet-port. In some regions, the model also had a built-in modem. Because of the small size of the new model was expelled expansion slot; thus, lose compatibility with the internal hard disk from the previous model, but it does not hurt to solder the IDE cable to the piping on the 70xxx chip CXD9731AGP / CXD9731GP. The power supply of the internal became external. In the sale of this edition came in November 2004.
The emergence of the incompatibility with the hard drive has been the subject of criticism, as it was a few games (like Final Fantasy XI), which required the presence of a hard drive; his presence and demanded an official PS2 Linux package. Expanding MultiTap for SCPH-70000 has also changed. The Sony currently sells only new model MultiTap, which means that the owners of the older PlayStation 2, if they want to play four or even more now - have to find a second-hand or take MultiTap MultiTap another manufacturer. It had the opportunity to also buy adapters from third party manufacturers to connect a hard disk, but the ability to connect to the IDE has been completely removed in the V14 edition.
In 2006, Sony released the V15 (SCPH-77001a and SCPH-77001b), the first time they went on sale in Japan on September 15, 2006, then in North America and other parts of the world.
Since July 2007, Sony has begun to deliver a new edition of the thin PlayStation 2 Slim - V16 (SCPH-79000) weighing 600 grams (compared to 900 grams in the SCPH-77001 model); the weight of the power supply was also reduced to 250 grams (350 grams in the previous edition). The next edition of the V17 (SCPH-90000) was announced for sale in Japan on November 22, 2007, with a revised interior design, which this time included the power supply, resulting in a total console weight of 720 grams

I did not find an active topic about PS2. Created.

Interested in this question: where can I buy licensed games? Not in online stores, although if you bought there, then you can specify them.

Rep: (94)
In Eldorado saw a couple. And in all kinds of electronics markets.

Vorosh, is it in Dolgoprudny?
I was told that there are games in M.Video. I looked, I searched, but, unfortunately, there were no games in St. Petersburg.

I know a couple of shops in St. Petersburg:
- GameZone on Bucharest
- Republic of games (Mega, Dybenko)

Rep: (5)
Interesting yet?

We (in Yaroslavl) only in El Dorado have a couple of pieces left. If you do not want to order, you should look for shops with used games. There may be quite normal stale. Well, or Avito.

Of course interesting! Recently I bought a PS2 chip. Very interesting console with exclusives.

Rep: (1382)
I can link to links how to connect to a VGA monitor by spending no more than 50 rubles on the details ...;)

but if there is a TV set and is connected via a component cable (5 tails of which), then you can count nothing and it will not change .... unless you have to force progressive scan on in games even if the game doesn’t know how ...

Carried out the place of childhood - took Sonya 2 and chipanula it.
Everything would be fine, but there is one thing - in a more beautiful (crash bandicoot) game at the bottom of the screen is cut off - a black bar.
What could it be?
The master said - it depends on the TV, but I tried on different ones - the result is the same.
Does this somehow rule? master error?
Thank you so much!

and in games as I understand it NTSC (http://rutracker.org/f...ewtopic.php?t=3054400)
And this is fundamentally important?

Rep: (1382)
PAL image576 linesin NTSC480 lines.... plus NTSC-game on a PAL-console (and vice versa) can produce different glitches ...

How does it even look on TV then?

Rep: (5)
Uncomfortable, the screen is so small, so another piece cut off ... A little later I will send a photo.
And how can you get around this? Fix?

In the settings of the chip, you can pokolovatsya. you need to know what you have for the chip, google it up accordingly, how to enter its menu, and there you can already see what is in the output signal settings.

It’s really easy as a matter of fact. Find out which buttons start your chip's menu on startup and check the settings in this menu.

Are the games exactly 4: 3? judging by the pictures - it broadcasts at 16: 9 (widescreen, like all new TVs) .... or something strongly climbs up the screen?

Try to enable the function Y Screen Fix in the chip setup

Rep: (7)
My console sometimes does not want to read the faces of the game, that is, I insert the disc and it swears that the disc cannot be read, and after many attempts the game finally loads, but does it read the pirated discs instantly, is the problem in the laser? CDs read excellent, but DVDs with problems, but some dits.diski reads without problems
