Picked this up from another forum . . . anyone know if this is true?
Gran Turismo 4 is the only DL game whick can’t be backuped, Xenosaga and others works on DVD+R DL
And it is still not sure that OTP is the problem for GT4
i have a ps2 and it is chipped with magic 3 my friend’s chipped with messiah i have Gran turismo original and it won’t even boot on both machines ! is this because they are chipped or what this has never happened before on any game and i probably have about 500 back-up games can anyone shed any light on this prob
It’s unit specific from what I understand some can read the discs others cant, personally speaking I have tried MGS2 & Champions of Norrath on a variety of PS2’s and none worked though I recall a poster in the NEC forum some time ago saying MGS2 worked for him with normal writing software now I had the same writer/media/software/game as him and it didnâ€™t work in any PS2 I tested.
I also saw on another site someone who had success with a v7 PS2 but the person in question used illegal software to create a Sony DVD9 master image which did work for him apparently (Donâ€™t bother asking me I donâ€™t have it & wouldnâ€™t know where to get it) but others tested it & didnâ€™t work for them so I’m under the impression that its luck of the draw as to whether it will read the DVD+R DL.
By the way my own v9 can read DVD+R DL movies and play them but it skips & stutters all over the place making the movie unwatchable but my other players play the same disc just fine.
so does that mean even on an unchipped playstation 2 the new gran turismo 4 might not work on it and if so surely there would be a case of some description, to answer to, by either Fony sorry sony or the game manufacturer
what do you think
The DVD9 (dual layer DVD-ROM) format which the PS2 games in question come one are not the same as DVD+R DL so even though PS2’s might not be able to read the DVD+R DL format properly any DVD9 disc (movie or game) wont have any trouble.
So the original Gran Turismo 4 disc should work fine in any PS2 chipped or not.
