carolinamagi writes "Hey all! I've got an original Playstation collecting in my garage and hardly ever use — mostly when I've got a fix for Final Fantasy VII. Anyhow . . . I've been poking about the internet and keep coming across neat mods and interesting setups for items like mini lcd screens or an Xbox or whatever. I know the original Playstation is a dated system but I can't help but wonder if there are any "after market" or non-game mods which others have tried (with success) to give their Playstation some new life. The catch is that I'm a total novice when it comes to mods (although I am handy around the house and around a computer) and I would still like the ability to play games with my post-mod Playstation. Any ideas?"
