PS1 Modding

Postby RealGoldenBacon » Mon Feb 19, 2018 10:17 pm

I just got a fat PS1. Can anyone recommend any good cheap mod chips that I can get and where I can get them. I'm hoping to find a decent one for under $20. Thanks for any help

You can also find decent chips on eBay as well as long as you know what to look for. That's where I usually get chips when I want to mod PS1 consoles. I would recommend buying from US sellers, though. They're a bit more expensive usually, but they arrive much quicker and in my experience, you're less likely to get ripped off, either because the chips were bad or weren't properly programmed. A few sellers even pre-solder wires onto the chip so that all you have to do is solder the chip to the board once it arrives.

Could just use a PS1 GameShark for under $20 easily.

I was looking around and found out it was cheaper to just make my own too.

I am about to try this, seems a lot better than potentially wrecking my ps1 with a soldering iron etc. and way easier

That will only work if the model of playstation 1 being used has the serial port in the back. The CDX version of the Gameshark doesn't work that way. And while not difficult to find Gamesharks (at least in my experience), they're not always cheap. You can easily get chips for much cheaper. Sure, using the Gameshark method is probably easier for someone who isn't skilled with soldering or doesn't want to bother with it, but once it's installed, it's pretty much a permanent fix. Not only that, but the chips that PS1 modchips are made out of are still being manufactured, while Gamesharks are not, so you'll always be able to more easily find the chips.

If you are techy enough and confident in your skills go for mod your own PS1 option.
If not, go for game Shark option or look for a already modded PS1.
