    I was thinking about buying an import PS2 so I could play the Super Robot Alpha games and the Transformers tatkai game. It would be very expensive and i was wondering if anybodys done this before. Would it be worth it?

    Or you could go with Swap Magic and a slide-mod.

    I can't speak for Super Robot Alpha, but Transformers Tatakai is a joke. I wouldn't play it (again) if it was given to me.

    Swap Magic is a boot disk that will over-ride region locks for the PS2. A slide mod is an mod technique that lets you place a small hook on the disk tray and pull it out to change disks without the system opening the tray and going back to the browser. This is for the old style systems though. I'm not sure what they have for the slimline PS2.

    Skip the Transformers game and buy Fire Pro Wrestling Returns and burn the english patch onto a dvd. It is far more enjoyable of a game than Transformers.

    That's how I play the TF G1 game.

    IMO...it's a ton of fun.

    I imported Saturn, Dreamcast, a ceramic white PS2(mostly to play DVDs), and a Famicom color Micro Gameboy. Never once regretted any of it.
