[Answered] ps3 and ps2 in one case help?
hi all, was looking for other people's thoughts on this.
I've been thinking of combining a PS3 slim and a PS2 into a single Phat case. it would need to have dual disk bays (using the space on the left side of the ps3 next to the blu ray dive) I believe I could easily manage to simply combine the two systems into one case but keeping the systems separate. ie 2 power inputs, 2 av out, and controller ports for ps2 ect. but would ultimately like to fully integrate the two to utilise as a single system.
I understand the work involved in the final idea, as I am a qualified electrical systems engineer and currently studying for another degree (in telecommunication engineering)
any thoughts or points from previously tried attempts would be greatly appreciated.
yes I'm goin to mod them. goin to build first, check functionality then worry about the mods. but hopefully will be looking at;
+ PS3 with two internal HDD's for dual boot - still wondering how to implement a way to switch from which HDD id being used
+ PS2 with internal HDD for both PS1 and PS2 games.
Thank you very much moja, I will look in to the chips and MC Boot. could be interested in taking them off your hands.
I have tried the MC Thing before but it was about 4 years ago but don't think it went to well. think I still have it somewhere. 32mb with mini USB connection rings a bell, and I'm sure I still have Swap Magic disc's with lid clips for the slim.
which in your opinion is the best for Booting games from HDD? bearing in mind I would like to use the largest capacity HDD available and have the ability to back-up both PS1 and PS2 games from the disc drive.
