Q: Why are there so many different kinds of mod chips?
A: The Sony PlayStation checks the country code on the PS2
CD Roms / DVDs before it allows the game to start. If the country
code on the disc
does not match that of your PlayStation, it will not allow
you to play the game. Similarly, the console checks to make
sure you have inserted an original disc.
