We are still using the US PS2 that I bought in Texas and running it via a 240/110v transformer. It even works on the RGB input which is where I thought my main problems would be with the difference betweem PAL/NTSC. So many TV’s, Videos and DVD’s these days come with support for both systems already.

I must be the only person who was thinking of getting his US PS2 chipped to play UK games. My kids are getting fed up playing the games they got a year ago, (although they have now been converted to playing games on their PC, the kids that is, not the games, or I will be the next one taken to court).
I’ll be waiting for the next generation of PS before I do anything about it though.
