Sony PlayStation 1 Region Free Mod Chip

Today I'm modding a PSone console so that it can be used to play any region game. These are normally locked per region (Japan, US/Canada & Europe) but with this mod you can play all of them.

Here is the PSone and mod chip

PSone color mod, this basically grounds out a pin on a chip which controls the video output on the PSone. If you don't do this the console will display NTSC/NTSC-J in black and white.

Done!
