No more DVD region trick with the new PS2 model.

   After Sony screwed up and left a bug in the Playstation 2 that allowed the Japanese system to play American DVDs, the company took many measures to fix their actions. Releasing the new utility disk and announcing a recall on the utility disk 1.0 didn't help much since millions of people already had the original utility disk and had no intentions of giving up their PS2's functionality to play foreign DVDs. Then came more problems as others started to make money by selling memory cards with the installed 1.0 drivers to people who bought the PS2 system with the new drivers.

   Well, now Sony took another step to protect the regional lockout by releasing their new model of the Playstation 2 that is "fully" protected against the DVD lockout glitch. As we have reported earlier, the company announced and already started to ship the new SCPH-15000 models of Playstation 2 that is the same exact system with a different internal built which is simply cost efficient.

   There is still no word from anyone about Sony's attempt to block out the first wave of mod chips on the new model. As new information develops about the new model SCPH-15000, we will have it reported.
