You can buy something for around 17.99 from:

This comes with something the size of a normal memory card which you plug into the memory card slot and a C.D to run the software. It will then play region 1-6 dvds perfectly with no hardware changes needed at all. The only problem is that it can only be used on T.V's that support NTSC but if it does then it will work perfectly with out a doubt.

This one is way better then the DVD Region X

-No hardware required (so also no empty memorycard)
-Works on pal and ntsc
-Ssimply load cd, select region, insert DVD and play
-Play all region DVD titles including RCE
-And it's 3 times cheaper then DVD region X

Only problem is that it doesnt work with the newest ps2 console: 39003

This is a downloadable divx player for ps2.

1.You will need a way to boot the disc you will burn. a mod chip, or knife trick will work.

that is a link to a tutorial on the knife trick.

2. download the player

3.extract the files, than open the "utils" folder and use cdgenps2.exe to burn ELF, system.cnf, and IRX , change the system.cnf lba too 12231. you may add a divx .avi to the compilation if you want. now "burn" the image and it creates a cd image. use nero, or whatever to burn the .bin/.cue compilation.

4. you may than boot the disk with your ps2 (if you use knife trick or have mod chip. to play divx on other disk, use your swap method when the screen has booted and use your swap method to switch disks, than go to "browser" and select your movie.

note: their is also an mp3 player(i have tested) and a dvd multi region hack

PostOther hack posted by Bob Friend, February 01 2003:

Their is also a program that plays .divx .mp3 .jpg etc. over a home network. the ps2 network adapter is needed NOT 3rd party usb adapter.

no mod chip/boot method needed

I bought my (U.S.) PS2 sometime in 2000, and it has an option to set the region coding in the plain config menu you get by powering up without a disc in it. Was this option removed at some point? Is it a limited use option that will hard code after I've set it enough times?

For You people That got Pown shop Playstations. Or just forgot the password. Here is what to do. Enter the password screen and press the select button followed by 7444. This will delete any password in your PlayStation 2's memory. Your PlayStation 2 will then ask you to enter a new password. Enter a new password

if you go to you can buy Action Replay 2 (AR2) - this is similar to gameshark as in you can get cheats for games and add them in - more importantly you can run the cd (you get a cd and special memory card which must be inserted in your PS2) and specify what region coding you want from 1-6. I have this, i have used it - and it is great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Does any one know the multi region code for the first PS2 as I want to play USA dvd's and copies

PostRegion code hack posted by Jimmy, May 06 2005:

I tried all of the region free hacks that suggest you can merely press buttons on your controller on my own PS2 and 2 of my friends (being different PS2 models). I suppose there is no real suprise that they didn't work.

As with Sony DVD players you need to either tamper with the curcuit boards in exsisting remotes or buy region free remotes. I have only ever found 1 Sony DVD player that can be hackedby pressing buttons on hte keypad.

Unfortunatley it looks like the only way to region free your PS2 is buy the addition of a chip or non permenant Software cheat like Action replay.

You could just get a matrix chip for ur ps2. im not sure about other chips but when u boot the system u can just hold down 'O+triangle' to go to the region thing. dont mess with anything else though. the uposide of this is u can also play copied games
