Hey /v/men, hows it goin

I live in Japan and have decided to buy a Japanese PS2 to play a bunch of games I missed out on as a nintendo kid

My question is, what model of PS2 is the best? Is there anything I should be careful of when buying a used PS2?

I'm countin on you guys, i need the help

Should i go to vr?

Read the rules there.

The best PS2 model is Phat.
What's the purpose of buying exactly a Japanese PS2?
>>
>>315368953
I live in Japan, so games are more accessible. Also I need to practice my japanese

The phat model is the original? Why is that best?
>>
>>315369082
>I live in Japan
makes sense.

Yes, original. There were some games incompatible with the Slim model. Moreover, there's HDD is original, that lets you load games from it.

Slim PS2 is the best
. Quiet
. Light
. Reliable

Fat PS2 disc tray wears out and the disc reader fails to read discs.

What games are incompatible with the Phat version?
Also I'm sorry, but whas an HDD?
>>
>>315372240
No there is not a flaw with the slim system that will cause disc scratching.

PS3 fat laser disc reader fails to read blue disc PS2 games.

HDD is an external disc memory for the PS2 fat. One PS2 game that needs the HDD is Final Fantasy 11. Sony has shut down the Final fantasy 11 servers making the game unplayable.

HDD means Hard Disk Drive. You can load your games from it with HD loader.

Man, you guys have been great help, thanks!

Pretty jealous, to be honest.

You should be, the food is great and the girls are consistantly attractive

>>315375628

I'd like to visit someday, if not just because it'll help progress my Japanese. Moving there permanently would probably be pretty nice too, though it sounds like it's hard to do that.

>bought a slim silver PS2
>want to mod it for all those gaems
>feel way too stupid to do Free McBoot
Guess I'll just buy used games, I guess.
