Please forgive this newbie for what is probably a dumb question, but…
I have been reading about making PS2 backups and using a GS2 to boot the backup at
and I understand the process. No problem here - I have made backups of my PS1 games and they work fine in my chipped PS1. I realize that PS2 backups are a bit more complicated, but the copying is not what I question.
Then I started to research putting a NEO 2.2 modchip in my PS2. No problem there either - I chipped my PS1, so the soldering didn’t scare me. It is the utility of having a NEO modchip that I question. According to the NEO chip ad at Chipzone: http://store.unet.net/shop/showdetl.cfm?&DID=12&Product_ID=26&CATID=2
I will still need to have a GS2 to boot my PS2 backups (not for PS1 though). What does having a NEO mod chip in my PS2 add? Is it the utility of not having to play with the cam to put new disks in, or am I missing the point entirely? Thanks in advance.
