Is it possible?!

I just went to the megagames website where some guy said he said he was able to “hack” the ps2 (the first models though) by pressing some button combinations that then allowed him to play region 1 dvd movies on the machine. Anyone knows if there are any such shortcutz on the newer models? e-mail is

Use the DATEL DVD Region X Disc mate, easiest way. I think the old DVD Region hack codes only worked on certain JAP consoles using the DVD driver disc etc. as their DVD Drivers were not built into firmware as they are now.
