    Ok, would like to know how's the prices and mods for the above 2.

    My main objective is to play multi-region dvd, then can play games at other time (secondary aim).

    Tenka, I bought it at Tampines. The console so far is performing quite well (bought not too long ago so cannot comment much). Kray, maybe you can look around a bit more regarding the prices. For me, can get the console at a lower price than my budget (~$500), I'm already quite happy with it.

    Tenka, how to meet you ? When are you free ? Oh yeah, make it this year please. Else I'm going back to school and suffer under the hands of education...... *sigh*

    Moggy, PS3 is going to come out in 2005 (or so I heard). So, I guess PS2 would not be much of use !
