It looks like they were going for convince over style. Selling to the pirates instead of the mod community it would seem. A suggestion for version 2: add a slick way to open and close the ports (not some generic rubber either), make the ports rear facing, and add a usb hub with 2 front mounted ps2 ports. That way it can be used everyday, justifying the expense.
Then people (even dedicated modders) will gripe that the ports are too inconvenient to get to. People want to be able to leave their console plugged in, not move it, connect to it with a laptop or a long cable, and flash it without having to hassle with anything else.
Why else would you spend good money to put on a convenience mod that isn't really all that convenient anyway?
