so when sony announced that the pstwo would not support an internal hard disk, a lot of people were rightfully dissapointed. games like final fantasy xi are not playable on the new system. more importantly, owners of the pstwo would never get the chance to drive seamlessly from city to city in grand theft auto by running the game directly from the hard disk. just think of all the people you could be running over instead of waiting for the next city to load.
well, some hacker who goes by the name of automan has rewritten pstwo history. photos of a pstwo with an internal hard disk have been popping up in forums around the net. the job is not for the faint of heart, and you’ll need a 12v power supply to power the hard disk, but to help get you started i’ve included the ide wiring images after the break.
are there any brave souls that want to give this a try and confirm that it’s legit?
like i said, not for the faint of heart. there’s lots of tiny solder jobs to be done.
