Latest Update: Monday, January 01, 2007 12:21



Currently there are 16 different versions of the Playstation2 game console. Below we have compiled several resourceful information that explain the many versions of the PS2. To start look at the sticker on the back of your unit and use the information below to determine your PS2's version number.


Version 1, 2 and 3 = 10 Screws at base of PS2 (see screw diagram below)
USA SCPH 30001, Serial Number begins with U1 = Version 1
USA SCPH 30001, Serial Number begins with U0 = Version 2
USA SCPH 30001, Serial Number begins with U1, Date Code 1A = Version 3
USA SCPH 30001, Serial Number begins with U2, Date Code 1A = Version 3
USA SCPH 30001, Serial Number begins with U2, Date Code 0D = Version 3


Version 4 (with electrical warning stamped on the bottom) = 8 Screws at base of PS2

USA SCPH 30001, Serial Number begins with U0, Date Code 1C = Version 4
USA SCPH 30001, Serial Number begins with U1 Date Code 1C = Version 4
USA SCPH 30001, Serial Number begins with U2 Date Code 1C = Version 4
USA SCPH 30001, Serial Number begins with U3 Date Code 1B = Version 4
USA SCPH 30001, Serial Number begins with U4 = Version 4
USA SCPH 30001, Serial Number begins with U5 Date Code 1C = Version 4
USA SCPH 35001, GT3 Edition = Version 4

Version note: All SCPH 35001 and V4 with a date code of 1a or 1b are Phoenix/Messiah-compatible.


Version 5 - There are 2 Motherboards for the SCPH 30001R

USA SCPH 30001, Serial Number begins with U1 Date Code 1D = Version 5
USA SCPH 30001, Serial Number begins with U3 Date Code 1D = Version 5
USA SCPH 30001R Version 5 Motherboard


Version 7- SCPH 39001
USA - NO true way to identify your unit until you physically open your ps2. If and when you have opened your PS2, the motherboard will read off GH-017

Version 8 - SCPH 39001
USA - NO true way to identify your unit until you physically open your ps2. If and when you have opened your PS2, the motherboard will read off GH-022

Version 9 - SCPH 50001
USA - The way to tell if you have a v9 and not a v10 without physically opening the PS2 unit is checking to see what type of material is "holding" the unit in the blue box. Version9 units are being held via a styro foam material. Otherwise the motherboard will read off GH-023

Version 10 - SCPH 50001
USA - The way to tell if you have a v10 and not a v9 without physically opening the PS2 unit is checking to see what type of material is "holding" the unit in the blue box. Version10 units are held via a cheap card board material. Otherwise the motherboard will read off GH-026

V11 - Only released in Europe. The model # is SCPH-50004 with a GH-027 or GH-029 board. Same board as V10 but console comes with a new laser unit.

v12 - The new mini Slim PS TWO SCPH-7000x:

There is another way to figure out which PS2 version you have although you will have to open it up and look inside at the Mainboard numbers.
