I am planning to get a PS2 from malaysia. I just have to make sure its modded with a magic 5 chip right?

I am also planning to get a couple of games from there. GT3 or GT4, GTA and Colin Mcrae rally 3.

Any idea where in b'lore or coimbatore PS2 cds are available?

I got my PS1 3 months before PS2 was released and have decided not to go in for the PS2 but go for the PS3 when it releases. The PS3 will feature THE cell. Im really really waiting for it. Anyways I have a Steering Wheel. Gear Stick and Pedals to dispose off. The pack said PS1/PS2 though iv never checked it myself. Anyways if anyones interested tell me.

Yea The Blue Ray Discs will store enough game data to make the games so real. However I guess that means only original games. or fewer pirated ones. Dunno how the Indian market will react to that

Naah. I doubt that. There are very few people whod buy original games. I mean I dont feel right paying 4k for somthing i can get for 45 bux. The Indian and Chinese markets have a huge piracy problem and therefore many developers arent too sure about launching their products officially here. The XBOX 2 will release before the PS3.Competition!!!!!!!!

I was thinking the same and have decided to wait. The PS3 can be released any time between end 2005 to mid 2006

AFAIK nothing about xbox 2 is confirmed by MS... names like xbox 2, xenon, xbox 360 are doing rounds... and with speculation about q4 launch in US and europe. No idea about ps though.

Cool dudes..

lissen the ps3 aint out to be realsed on the gaming scene..
until the end of 2006...
the sony corp is is very happy with th recent gaming console control of the psp...
they have no doubt out did themselves on the psp...
but wen it cums to the hand held market this rules...
and for tv gaming consoles the x-box rules ....
but in comparison to games on shelf to buy sony is picked the winner..

dont wait for gta san andreas to come out for the comp jus go an pick it up right now for your ps2...its a must buy...
plus if any1 wants to buy a game for their younger bros on the ps2
buy the incredibles damn nice animated game for the kiddo's..
i picked it up for my 7yr old cousin...
