PlayStation 2 Redesign (GameStop Refurbished)
The best 2000 had to offer
Sony easily dominated the console wars back in 2000, creating this beautiful beast. Well. technically the fatty came first but whatever. This guy was amazing in every way, providing the best gaming experience of it's time. Unfortunately, though, it's golden age has long since past, and now the used systems are all that's being sold. It pains me to say this, but either save for the extra $30 and pick up an Xbox 360 or save through the summer for a PS4. There's little to no chance that you can get one of these in good condition, but if you can it's a great first console as it plays great. For the experienced gamer, though, this will just no longer do. sad to say it, but it's lack of decent graphics and extremely limited online capabilities shouts "STEER CLEAR!" R.I.P. Sony Playstation 2
system works great so far
I bought a Ps2 because I got tired of COD and wanted to play the old games again. so far I have played only PS1 games but they work great. my only complaint is the controller they sent me makes noise a loud noise when there is vibration and when I use the analog stick, the person moves by himself for a few seconds so I have to use the d-pad. I was planning on buying a new controller anyway so I don't mind so much.
A little bit disappointed
This playstation 2 console is not like-new, it looks old. The AV cable is poor and it doesn't work sometimes. It does not come with a memory card so I have to buy a memory card and a new AV cable from Newegg.
This was pretty awesome. I liked it a lot. I just recently purchased my PS2, and I must say, it is epic. Some people gave it bad reviews because it's old, but this beats the Wii anyday. Trust me, at this price, you will not regret buying.
i bought this in store (so no ship damage) and it works amazing. the only problem is it heats up fast but a 4 dolar externa cooling fan fixes that easy. overall amazing
it came today with everything, and worked fine. The only problem was the controller, the right analog stick was broken and it came off when i moved it around. Other then that its fine
The PS2 is one of the best systems ever
When I first played my dad's PS2, I was around 5 years old. It was Cars, The Video Game. Now Cars isn't the best example on the PS2, but it was still pretty fun. I had my PS2 from around 2004 to I think 2010, and that's a LONG time for a video game system. Some of my favorite games were Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi, Marvel Nemesis, Rise of the Imperfects, and The Incredible Hulk.
One of the BEST systems ever
The PS2 is one of the best video game systems ever with its huge library games which are amazingly affordable.BUY IT.
I'll be the first to admit, i never had a ps2 till now, my parents optioned for the original xbox, which i loved, but i always wanted this system as well, played over at friends and family's, and just wanted it, so when some extra money came i got, to my surprise i got not only a slim, but a silver edition slim, for $50 bucks in store. Can't beat that price. Got Final Fantasy's X, X-2, and XII for it as well. Love it, as well as my xbox, 360, and psp.
This console is great. I have had it for seven years and there is no sign of that age when I am playing a game. The only thing is, it is outdated. If you are just looking for a basic gaming console, get this. If you want a higher end gaming system, get the Xbox 360. If you are a Playstation fan, go for the PS3 if you want. But overall, this is a great system for the basic gamer.
