yeah, i wouldn't hold your breath on that one. i know your pain though, i also have or want several imports that i can't play. You could go the way of the mod chip, but these days that can be a dangerous route as far as keeping your PS2 working. When I was in high school, $10 and a soldering pencil got your PSX to play anything, but these days it's way more complex. Now you're talking around $70 for anything worth a damn, and even then, you never know if it's gonna be reliable.
