So I fired up my new copy of Resident Evil Outbreak to give it a play, and watched it load...... then I ran around for a few minutes, and watched it loooaaaddd..... and then I went through a door, and waited for it to loooooooooaaaaaaaaaddd..... and then I switched the game off in frustration. :Hangman:
The load times in this game are ridiculous - I haven't seen it this bad since first or second-gen Playstation games. From what I hear and from what is written in the manual, the load times can be greatly shortened with the PS2 HDD. There are 2 problems to this: The HDD here in the US is $99, and it comes with Final Fantasy XI, a game I already have on PC. So there's basically no compelling reason to spend $99 on a 40GB hard drive (can get the from $40-$60) and a game I already have. :snipe:
So what I want to know is, is there a way to use a normal PC hard drive to work with the PS2? Like could I use a copy of the HDD tools disk that comes with the FFXI pack (hint, hint, anyone who bought it :prayer: ) to reformat a normal PC hard drive to be usable in the PS2? Or could I import (assuming I could get my hands on one, hah!) a Japanese internal PS2 hard drive to use?
Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks!
