PlayStation 2 Redesign
Ive had a ps2 for sooo long now. Its a really awesome consle! over heating? HECK NO! u may think its outdated but its a consle to never forget!
Best Game System Ever Made.
Well, I've long owned a Gamecube and PS1, so in December, I bought this system and I've enjoyed it more than any other system that I've ever played. I've bought more than 20 games for it in the past 4 months. It's a more compact system than any other and has more games available for it. I should have gotten on of these years ago. I love tactical shooters, simulations, and sports games and are all available on this site to buy with your system. Splinter Cell, Socom, Madden, Gran Turismo 4, MLB: The Show and many other popular series are still available for this system. The PS2 Slim has no overheating or aliasing problems and runs very smoothly. The memory cards hold more than you can imagine and you can save anything you want. If you are looking for a new system then this is for you. It's easy on the wallet, not frustrating to hook up like the new systems, and fun. Games are still being made for the PS2. Although its at the end of its era, its still worth picking up just to own a classic and one of the most fun things you will ever own.
PS2 was king for so long
As someone who still has every gaming system he's ever owned dating back to 1990 I have the say the PS2 is still a favorite. I've moved on to the 360 these days but I still go back to this little bad boy every so often. The PS2 had some of the greatest franchises of all time, Resident Evil, God Of War, GTA, BloodRayne they all started here. Anyone who's truly into gaming should own one especially at only about $100 brand new and a huge selection of games at cheap prices. My only problem personally is the console I bought to replace my old slim PS2 doesn't work properly. It won't read a good 80% of my games that played perfectly fine on my other PS2. I more than likely got a bad console. It's not that big of a problem seeing as they're so cheap to replace now. But it's just a pain either way. My only warning would be to check it out with a number of games in different states from mint to scratched to make sure it works before settling in and voiding a return.
As good or Better than PS3
While some may disagree with my idea of how this compares to the PS3, (why play an HD console on a non-HD tv (I'm cheap like that)?) I believe that the PS2 is great because it has many, many games (not that you would want to play most of them) and decent graphics, and a good controller design. I like the dualshock 2 controller more than the sixaxis because the joystick resistance is greater on the dualshock 2 controller, which, unfortunatly, is wired to the console. The nice thing about that is that you don't need to recharge or put batteries in the controller. So yes, I would recommend this to a friend (if I had any...). BUT WAIT! There is one complaint with this console (in question form)! Why do I have to buy a PS2, then I have to buy a memory card (not included), then I have to buy a second controller (not included) and a game (no game included)? In fact, if you have a terrible TV like me, then you might also have to buy a switchbox to be able to hook them all up at once.
Good for starters
Well the Ps2 goes long for me I now13 so about 4 years I have had it. Those years were Great fun.I got several games for it and played it every day. But know I sadly have diffrent fellings about the Ps2. When Call of Duty World at War came out for the Xbox 360 I went to a friends house to play the Xbox 360. I have to say The Xbox 360 had Amazing Graphics and game play. So know being 2010 and being very close to Christmas I know want a Xbox 360. Though he Ps2 is a excellent system to start out with! It is good for People who cant afford a next Gen system or who have kids that want to get started playing video games. It has been good past years with the Ps2 just know I realize the Graphics are Poor and they are Starting to not make games for the ps2. Though for starters this a great system and recommend it though if you are my age and have enough money to afford a Xbox 360 then I dont reccomend getting the Ps2. Hopefully I will get the xbox 360 this Christmas!
Sony's The Greatest
First off i want to say i had always been a big fan of Sony. They are a very reliable company and they make great systems. The PS1 started it for me. I loved the game selection and the design of the PS1. Then came the PS2. I got this system back when it first came out and i loved it, then sadly it broke. (Due to having it up until 2008) Then they came out with this, the redisigned PS2, and it was near perfection for its time. It is lightweight, compatible, and easy to use. The graphic design is beautiful, and the game selection is great. I have a PS3 now and i love it, but seeing as it has no backwards compatability with PS2 games, im thinking of buying this. The PS2 has backwards compatability with PS1 games wich makes for a bigger game selection. Not only can it do backwards compatability, it can also play DVD's. All around this system is amazing.
A Great System.
When we first got our system it was a few years a go. We played the heck out of it. We got more than 70 games and eventually traded them for other ones. Before we had a few games for Nintendo GBA and 64, but eventually my kids got tired of it. When we got our PS2 my kids where crazy over it. They played it all the time, Guitar Hero and Kingdom Hearts. Then they would have all there friends over and they would freak out and play it all the time. We really got our use out of it. It was worth all the money we have put toward it. But one of our kids is now PC based, and my other will be soon. Now, my kids want a PS3 or and Xbox. But I don't really know how it will compare. PS2 is an original system that all ages would enjoy. Me and my husband enjoyed it.
The Best game system
This is the Best game system in the whole world. The desighn of it is fantastic the look of it is just awsome. The graphics of this system are very good for being around for a lond time. The graphics are just as good as any system. Now if you onliy care about graphics then dont get this system. There are over 1000 games for this system so there is alot of games. It functions excellently it never ever breaks down. It has a very good performance it never heats up on you as long as you dont play 10 hours straight then you should be fine. The games are very good i reccomend Tom clancys splinter cell the sereis star wars battelfront 2 the call of duty series rainbow six 3 Mercenaries Madden Nfl 1o NBa 2k10 Those are just a few games that I personaly love! Here are the Pros and Cons of this game Pros 1. Has great sound and graphics 2. Has amazing games 3. This is a system you will love Cons. 1. None! So anyway BUY THIS SYSTEM!!
BEST SYSTEM EVER! A classic.
One of the best systems of all time!! I had the original PS2 before i got this one, i had the fat version. Which is better. But this system is great for when you want to take it to a friends/familys house. Or even on a roadtrip. Its amazing. I LOVE ITTTT. I recommend this video game system. Oh i put my recommendations for games below but it only let me put 3. I wanna add one more...- Jak X: Combat Racing. I know i only put up "Jak" Games. But if you get a PS2, then get those games, if you only want to buy one, buy the first one "The Precursor Legacy" And if you think that one is boring (which you probably wont think) then give the other games another chance, because Jak 2, Jak 3, and Jak X have guns and more action. Jak and Daxter The Precursor Legacy was my first game, i never stopped playing those games since. SUPER FUN!!!
Time to go
I love this console and have and still do own all three, including hand held consoles. And they have all been good to me, especially this one. But there comes a time when some things just dont cut it any more and im afraid to say it but this just doesnt cut it any more. Love this system and i will keep all the games i have for it and prefer to play them on here and not the new one. But this system just isnt worth keeping around just for football games and cartoon games. Its a new generation and its time to see this go. Alot of you will hate me for this but you know deep down that its the truth. Football is not a good enough reason to buy this or keep making this. But then again its the only way they can earn anything to help make the new systems games better. Farewell PS2.
