Whee! Guess what I just got! (You'll love this)
« on: June 23, 2004, 04:01:25 pm »
Hi Kids!

I just picked up a Japanese PS2.  I bought the main Karaoke Revolution Japan disk, plus the Anime Expansion Disk...

AND!!!  (TaDA!) I bought the Para-Para controller plus the game!

I'll also have a US PS2 with the First two American Karaoke Revolution games there (I'm covering the reaction to version 2 for Karaokerevolution.net).[/b]

Um...

A couple things.

1) Sailor Naboo didn't say she modded a PS2 to read Japanese games, but purchased a Japanese PS2.

2) We need to protect ourselves against liability so we should probably discourage discussion of anything illegal. Just in case that's the case with your question, please take it some place where we can't police it, (ie. private message.) Thanks. :)

even the most simple USB mod things require you to sauter 2 wires inside, ruins warranty and possible damage to your system. either wait for a legal freeloader or just buy a japense version... thats my advice
beware the ronime XD

Whats the point in being the director if i cant be evil dictator every once in a while?

Why *do* they have regional specifications anyway? You'd think they could sell more if they catered to the import market.

I have heard lots of reasons for this.  Here are the one's I remember:

1) A regional 'lock out' can help deter people from using a system to play pirated games.

2)  Keeping imports away keeps the US companies happy because when a Final Fantasy game gets released in Japan and then say US gets it 3 months later, the Japanese release won't steal the thunder of the US release.  

3)  control control control.  It is all about dictating who has easy access to what and for what price.  These US companies want to get their money's worth on the licsencing fees they paid to bring out a Japanese game here.
The trick is not minding.

I was unaware that modifying a piece of technology that I paid $140 for was illegal when it is my property.

I think if I bought it, I can should be able to do whatever it is that I want to with it!  Well, so long as I'm not rigging a PS2 to steal stuff from banks or anything like that, but I should be able to set it up to play import games.  It's not illegal to import games, or buy an import system, so why would it be illegal to fix my current system to play import games?

This makes no sense to me.

My PS1 is modded.  Is that against the law?

It is not illegal to modify a system you purchased.  

Your reasoning is correct.  You bought it, you can do whatever you want with it.  It is not illegal to buy a modded system, it is not illegal to use a boot disc to play imports/burns.
Your modded PS1 is perfectly legal.   :)

But, obviously once you modify/tamper with your system, all product warrantees, guarantees, etc... are null and void.

@ SailorNaboo

Where does one find the first two Karaoke Revolutions for North American PS2's? I've had a devil of a time trying to find them; all I've managed was Volume 3 of KR.

But at least the headset mic (normally used with SOCOM and other online multiplayer games) works right & proper with KR v. 3.
