Messiah to the rescue

PS2 modchip with full multiregion functionality

Source - Madeira Games

Have you been holding off getting your PlayStation 2 chipped for import copies and the like? With the proliferation of different kinds of modchip (Origa, NEO4 and more), it's been tough making a decision, but specialist e-tailer Madeira Games may just have the solution. Announced today, the Messiah PS2 modchip plays PlayStation and PlayStation 2 games from any region, PAL or NTSC, without the need for a disk-swap to start them up, along with all sorts of backups, including CDR, Silvers, DVDR and even Hong Kong Silvers. Although we don't condone that sort of thing, Messiah still stands out as the first chip to support proper multiregion gameplay. It costs £64 to pre-order the chip, or you can negotiate with them directly about fitting costs. There is bound to be a big queue of gamers eager to have their hardware hacked up for Messiah, so if you're interested, we suggest you get on with it.
