Question about Sony PS3 40GB Best Sellers Bundle Console
How can i unlock my ps2 to play download games?
There are a few options that I know of, all of which include phsyically modding the console.
As far as I know, there's no softmod for any playstation product (other than the PSP). You'll have to either add a mod chip (which usually involves desoldering the original CPU and soldering the mod chip into place) or get a flip top (if it's a fat PS2). The flip top version is easier, as you're just replacing the top of the outer shell.

If it will play DVD's this is a good sign. You will only need to clean the lens of the laser. Also clean the hub that the Disc rides on.
I hope your in the right posting area, this is for the Phat PS2 consoles with the drawer that comes out to put the CD in. Procedure is different for Slim PS2.

Contrary to what Revage has said, talking about this issue is not "a crime" Let's examine the facts and you can conclude this for yourself.
If you seriously think talking about such things is a crime then look at all the sites that are still up and functional that propagate how to build home made explosives or things of this nature.
However that is still too vague, let's examine this particular issue by it's facts alone.
If sites like http://www.pcsx2.net/ were a crime, don't you think Sony would have nipped this whole thing in the bud starting with the first two emulators created (Bleem and VGS)
Bleem and VGS were even sold in corperation stores right with other computer software. To wich Sony sued both them and Connectix's VGS.
"Ultimately Sony sued bleem! out of business after it lost its case toConnectix. bleem! simply ran out of money to defend itself. Even afterConnectix won their infringement case where they had used thePlayStation BIOS, bleem! never used the PlayStation BIOS and was thus"less guilty" than Connectix who were found not guilty."
"Two days after bleem! started taking preorders for their emulator, Sonyfiled suit against them alleging that they were violating their rightsand that providing access for PlayStation games to run on non-Sonyhardware constituted unfair competition.
Ultimately bleem! won in court and a protective order was issued to "protect David from Goliath".Sony lost on all counts, including bleem!'s use of screenshots ofPlayStation games on its packaging. The court noted that bleem!'s useof copyrighted screenshots was considered fair use and should beallowed to continue.
Despite the legal victories, the legal fees allegedly forced the company out of business. eBayauctions of some of the company's possessions were held soon after -including a huge library of worldwide game releases apparently used forcompatibility testing."
First of all downloading and using the emulator IS NOT AGAINST THE LAW. Certain conditions have to be met in order to make this statement true however.
1.) You must own a Playstation 2
2.) You must "dump" YOUR PS2's bios and only use that bios in your emulator.
3.) Any game you play in the emulator you must have purchased and own.
I can post where to find game downloads and bios's all day long. That is not against the law. Just frowned upon. You using them without having ownership of the game or the PS2 that the bios was dumped from, is. Even from the quoted material from wiki shows you two examples of where with even resale of a BIOS, Sony still couldn't win a case against either emulator.
Since I have thus proven that talking about this is not a crime. Nor even implication of what is talked about is not a crime(as long as conditions are met). I would suggest you go ::.HERE.:: where I have already talked about this and posted all the info that you're looking for.
