Ok I want to import some Japanese games but I heard that you cant play them on a US PS2. So before I waste a bunch of money buying crap I dont need, could someone tell me what I need to play Japanese games on a PS2 or if it’s be easier to just buy a Japanese PS2?

The way imports are made to be played – Rocket Japanese!

    It’s one thing to buy a Japanese region PS2, but that’d cost you a lot. A good alternative to buying another PS2 is getting a SwapMagic. It tricks the PS2 into letting you play any regioned game and backups (on blank CD/DVDs). If you have an original PS2, then you just need to make a small modification on the disc tray (by that, I mean snapping the front cover of the tray off). If you have a slim PS2, you need to make a different modification, which I do not know of.

    Check this video for a tutorial on how it works:
