Hi I'm from India and I too have the same problem. You can ask any local games store or technicians; most of them know this stuff. I've got one nearby and the cost is about Rs.2000 here in Kerala. Good luck and happy gaming!
I'm indian too but i live in usa i'm having the same problem but if i'm not able to find the chip in america than we should just forget about playing pirated games or whatever even though i don't have any pirated games

sorry buddy you cant unlock a ps2 to play pirated games. but depending on what kind of ps2 you have you can modify it to play your copied games if it is a fat ps2 you will need to buy a modchip for it or if you have a slim ps2 like mine all you have to do is order some swap magic discs at modchip.ca or .com then modify your slime line with a fliptop cover or the cheap free way is to use the tape and tissue mod that i use( just google tape and tissue mod) i play all my copied games and they work just fine. you can even play the classics such as sega genesis or supernes. afterdawn.com is an awsome website for all your ps2 modding needs it has all the guides from burning games to modding your ps2
^^ hoped tht helps
The PlayStation 2, like the original PlayStation, incorporates circuitry to prevent the playing of copied or out-of-region discs and programs produced by people who are not paying percentage to the Sony Corporation (unlicensed games etc.). User response to this - grey market for modchips. PS2 Mod-Chips when installed, bypass the checks and allow the copied CD-R and DVD-R backup discs to run. Obviously the installation of mod-chips in PlayStation 2 consoles is widely discouraged by Sony -- the reason is piracy. You must know that Sony has overlaid a seal onto each of their PS2 consoles. If this seal is broken (thus providing evidence that the console has been opened and "modded"), Sony will refuse to repair the system. On the other hand if your console is more than one yer old and no longer covered by the manufacturer warranty you should not worry about fraking the seal -- it will not change anything.
It can be done spending around few $15 to $20 i guess.
I own a PS2 which is modded before a year and still it works with out any trouble. You can ask if u have any questions about PS2. Thank you, Thyagu.A
You have to disable the region lock by installing a so called "mod chip". This is a microprocessor (PIC Micro) that is wired inside the PS" or othe game consoles. There should be stores in your place that offer this service.
Here is are sample of mode chips:
You can also google for sites that give instructions on how to install the chip and where to buy it.
