Product Details:

This is a refurbished Sony PlayStation 2 console. It is guaranteed to work. A controller is included with purchase, but may not be a Sony brand controller. PlayStation 2's 300 Mhz processor delivers enhanced clarity and mesmerizing graphics. What's more, the PlayStation 2 doubles as a CD/DVD player. It also plays most of the original PlayStation games. Step into the 128-bit universe brought to you by PlayStation 2. You'll enjoy the look, sound, and feel of unbelievable, near-cinematic realism as you play. PlayStation 2 offers the most advanced games across every genre, DVD video playback as a standard feature, Dolby Digital 5.1 theater-quality sound, and the ability to play the immense catalog of PlayStation games. So, what are you waiting for?

The 128-Bit Emotion Engine is the first chip of its kind. No other mass-market computer technology on the market comes close to its power. In the PlayStation2, this chip is used as the workhorse of the console. It processes all physics and math calculations.

The PlayStation2 has a 128-Bit Emotion Engine. The 128-Bit part of the title means that this chipset both processes information and sends it over a 128-Bit bus (A Bus is the pathway between chips on a circuit board. A wide bus carries more bits of information and is thus faster than a narrower bus).

You may think that your PC has a faster processor, but remember that the Emotion Engine has inherently faster 128-Bit processing and it is just a part of the overall PlayStation2 power.

A small note for the really detail oriented: The reason that the speed is 294.912 MHz, is that it must be a multiple of a required processor speed that supports the DVD ROM operations.
* Dimensions: 301mm (W) x 178mm (H) x 78mm (D), (12" x 7" x 3").

* Weight: 2.1 kg (4 lbs. 10 oz.).

* Media: PlayStation2 CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, and PlayStation CD-ROM, CD Audio
This means your PlayStation 2 will basically play all your old PlayStation games (but not make them look any better), all music CDs and all North American DVDs.

* Interfaces: Controller Port (2)
These are the same as the controller ports on the current PlayStation.

* Interfaces: Memory Card Slot (2)
These slots are very similar to the ones on the original PlayStation, except they support the new, faster transfer rate.

* Interfaces: AV Multi Cable Output (1)
This is where you plug the cord that goes to the back of your television.

* Interfaces: Optical Digital Output (1)
This port will let you send data directly to a digital receiver. This is perfect if you plan to plug your PlayStation into a DTS or Dolby receiver and get perfect sound.
If you don't use digital output, your data will be converted to an analog signal and then be converted back to digital at the receiver.

* Interfaces: USB Port (2)
USB enables you to connect any number of devices to your system with a high-speed data link.

* Interfaces: I.Link (IEEE1394) (1)
The IEEE139 port is known by two names: I.Link and for Mac owners, FireWire - there are some minor differences between the two. This high-data transfer port has the advantage of supplying (some) power to devices that are connected. You can expect that an enormous number of hardware devices will use this port including speakers, printers, and other like devices.

* Interfaces: Type III PCMCIA Card Slot.
This slot is a lot like a laptop's add-in slot. Here you will be able to plug in a modem and eventually the connection for Sony's planned broadband network and hard drive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME!!!! I bought this and a bunch of other games and it was totally worth it. It is retro but it still is fun. I would recommend this to anyone on a tight budget.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent System!! I have gone through many PS2's over my lifetime and as much as I enjoyed the Slim, they always died on me around two years into owning them. This version I've owned for five years now and it works since the day I bought it. I'd trust Gamestop in selling me used product as anything used I've bought at Gamestop plays and performs well. The System's Graphics are great, even by today's standards. The games are all extremely fun and the PS2 I own now, doesn't give me any issues. I have yet to own a PS3 or a PS4 but I have played them both and do see a purpose in buying anything from Playstation but not a PS4. I've also owned an Xbox 360 for a few years and I still prefer this Playstation. If you're going to buy any video game system, I'd highly recommend this system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So many memories Out of all the systems that i have grown up with and played, this is by far my favorite. i have played so many games on this system that i can't even list them all. only problem i have ever had is after using the system since it came out my PS2 has finally stopped working. It sadly won't read any of my discs but i'm planning on buying a new one very soon.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Back to the classics This is great system. I have a ps3 Nintendo 3ds Xl Super Nintendo and I had the wii but I decided to buy the system. I really wanted to play the log games like some of the gta arena football nhl nba tony hawk bmx all that good stuff etc. this system works just fine the memory card still holds all your progress so that is good. If you want to play classics this one is for. Check it out it is good. Yeah! Playstation system. Playstation game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best System there is! This is one of the best gaming system I have ever owned. The controller is very comfortable and easy to use and the system itself is reliable and has a huge library of games. The PS2s memory card allows all of your save files to be portable anywhere. The PS2 can stand up on it's side or put down on the floor. I would highly recommend anyone buy a PS2 even if they never had a Playstation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic and Worth it My grandpa bought his PS2 the day it came out, and even though the PS4 came out, he refuses to buy a new system. I agree. The PS2 is a classic system with classic games. You can go and play Call of Duty: Finest Hour, one of the classic Call of Duties, along with GTA: San Andreas and Rainbow Vegas, some of which are only on the PS2. I am buying my own Playstation 2 this year so I can share the classiness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Amazing Classic This console is flawless for its time. I still play to this day! It lasts long and it is way better than the slim version.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from R.I.P. PS2 Even though the PS3 and PS4 have already come out, the PS2 had the biggest impact on the gaming universe.The first 3D Grand Theft Auto came out on the PS2 and the first god of war came out on PS2. The PS2 has to be the biggest landmark in gaming history, better than PS1, PS3, and PS4 combined.
