Has anyone ever tried playing an import PS2 game on a US console (i know a minor mod or boot disc is needed to play such a game), but has anyone gotten this to successfully go online? It would be interesting seeing as how there are many japanese released games that are currently online. I would love to get some of these games and be able to play them online. Especially Bomberman Online, seeing as how its coming out in japan first.

Actually i haven't gotten an online game from out of America, but i use a swap card becuz i could make one myself. Very Happy I don't want to try with online games anyway! I kno for x box if you have a modchip in your x box and go x box live they shut down ur subscription and supposedly catch u and sue you. I don't believe the sueing you through x box live, but i do believe that they will shut down your subscription. Maybe It's just me, but i just don't think i want to take that chance.

Yea die hard FF-XI gamers have been playing on japanese servers on both the PC and the PS2 for quite sometime now. I think I might import a few japanese online compatible games and see if its possible to play from the states.

Hmmm... Now I'm thinking.

I just recently got a subscription to RedOctane; they're an online game rental company kind of like NetFlix but for games.

Incidentally, I like them better than GameFly and the rest because they rent import stuff and also have Dreamcast stuff. (Everyone else seems to just have domestic games and they stick to PS2, Gamecube, and Xbox; sorry for mentioning consoles other than PS2 but I thought that people might be interested to know this about RedOctane.)

In any case, this would be an easy way to test out some Japanese PS2 online games without having to spend a truckload of money buying them (especially if it turns out they don't work or they just aren't any fun).

I don't know how many of these are online capable, but the current (as of today) list of Japanese PS2 games that they offer is as follows:

All Star Pro Wrestling (Import PS2)
Armored Core 2 (Import PS2)
Beatmania II DX 3rd Style (Import PS2)
Beatmania II DX 4th Style (Import PS2)
Beatmania II DX 5th Style (Import PS2)
