The SCPH-1000 model was the very first PS1 and was only released in Japan.... It is also the only PS1 to feature an S-video port. If your one works with PAL games then it is best to assume it has already been modded by someone
..... does it still work? The early ps1 consoles in all regions were notorious for breaking down... it first starts with FMV scenes skipping... then refuses to work! But some people are lucky and still have the original launch consoles
