A well designed and made piece of kit and a giant step forward when compared to the originals

  • Excerpt: The Playstation 2 is a hugely successful games console which gave a huge step forward in the standards of games and graphics but with this came the need for more information to be stored and so a new standard in memory card was needed from Sony too but have they delivered? Pros: The original Playstation used memory cards which used blocks for storage which led to the information and data transfer taking time to transfer but thankfully the PS2 memory cards are much...

A reliable memory card with very limited space

  • Excerpt: Thankfully, when I was purchasing the Playstation I got the "whole package", the salesman included the memory card without even asking - not the right thing to do from his side, but in this case I did not complain. I was never up to date with Playstation projects and quite frankly did not know that the thing needs a memory card. I would realize it soon enough though.

A must have for any PS2 owner

  • Excerpt: The official PS2 memory card is the only one I have ever had for my PS2 and I never considered using third party ones due to knowing they had more problems. Since having just a few games and one memory card to save on, I now have 4 of these memory cards and well over 100 games from A-Z (quite literally). Whether I want to play Avatar the last airbender, Zapper or anything in between I know I will be able to save the game and continue playing from there next time.

This is a must for every PlayStation 2 console owner

  • Excerpt: Soon after the optical disc's were started to use as the main media for video game consoles, gamers needed a way to store a point in a game from where they could resume the play later. This is when Sony introduced its 8MB memory card. Thankfully the current generation of video game consoles like the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 use hard drives to store the game save data. The original Sony PS2 memory card which has an capacity of 8MB is a must for all PlayStation 2 gamers.

Must have for a ps2

  • Excerpt: It seems strange these days to have to have a memory card for your games consol. All ext gen consoles (ps3, 360 and wii) have built in hard drives which can automatically save your game data. There is nothing more frustrating than playing a game for a few hours only to realise you cannot save your progress. All PS2 owners need to buy one of these memory cards.

If you have a Ps2 you most likely own one. There are 3rd party alternatives though

  • Excerpt: There is no two ways about this having the ability to save your game is essential you will be constantly playing the first few levels again and again. And Sony knew this and took full advantage of this by charging you £20 for a memory card. But as time has gone on you can get them cheap.

A super memory card big enough to hold your saves and light and easy to use

  • Excerpt: When you bought your lovely shiny new Playstation 2 with games and control pads you would have sat down and realised that maybe there was something you had forgotten to purchase. Then it hits you 3 hours into one of your new games. How and where do I save my progress?? That's right, before the next gen consoles there were no hard drives eagerly awaiting your game saves. Instead you needed to buy yourself a memory card.

A decent money-spinner from Sony no doubt

  • Excerpt: We might laugh now sitting by our next-generation consoles, but once upon a time, consoles didn't actually come with hard drives, and we had to resort to these lowly memory cards! I fondly remember an advert for a PS1 memory card declaring "Try completing Final Fantasy 7 without it", and right they were: for any serious gamers, they were an absolute must, and as a result, Sony, business-savvy as always, made sure they were nice and expensive!

Essential for a PS2

ns1209, Dooyoo
6 December 2009
  • Excerpt: The PS2 memory card is practically an essential if you have a Playstation 2 as without one you will not be able to save your games so will have to complete all your games in a single sitting or you will have to restart your game every time you want to stop playing! The memory cards are available in various colours and I have a blue and a black one. They are quite small and fit nicely in the memory card slots in your Playstation 2.
