Summary: I originally received a Playstation 2 as an early Christmas gift over ten years ago. Through high school and college, it continued to do its duty, despite losing the ability to play DVDs, CDs, and PS1 games after only a year of use. This holiday break, as I had some free time on my hands, I went to boot the old boy up, but sadly, he wasn't havin' it. It was then that I read that production had ceased for Playstation 2 consoles on January 4, 2013. What to do?
Summary: The product was sold use as you cant find any new ones for a reasonable price. The seller was quick in shipping the product and pack it all very carefully. The only thing I really noticed was all the scratched on the console. The seller may have mentioned it but I don't remember. The item works very well and that is what is important. My son was happy to have it.
Summary: console came on time, with all the cords and everything, very happy with the purchase. the controller didn't work when I received it though, but I think this was due to the shipper, because when I emailed the seller, they said it worked before he sent it.
Summary: The PS2 is one of the best gaming consoles that have ever been released. The games can even stand their own against some of todays titles. This was a powerful system at the time, and the fact that it can still impress people with it's graphics says a lot about the console. I purchased this in 2011, when my original PS2 finally died on me, and I have played it more than I have played the PS3. A classic game console that's almost as fun as a Super Nintendo!
Excerpt: I originally had one of the large PS 2 systems and it was great for awhile but it died rather quickly. I recieved the skinny silver console shortly after and I still have it 3 years later! I use my playstation on a daily basis for everything from games, dvds and Cds and its still kicking! I am so satisfied with the graphics and quality of this system that I never really felt the desire to upgrade to the ps 3 or xbox.
Excerpt: the playstaiton 2 was the classic console that will go down in history as one of the revolutionary consoles that lasted a long time and was one of the most popular units ever sold that was not made by nintendo. this silver model is very cool and a different color than the orginal black console.
Excerpt: I still think its funny how out of all the old generation systems, the Playstation 2 is actually still alive (XBOX and the Nintendo Gamecube pretty much only exist to grab dust for most people) but the PS2 is still alive and kicking, making it one of the better old gen systems. PS2 is still strong and has a lot of replay values, boasting titles like Persona, Kingdom hearts, and even Rock Band/Guitar Hero for fans of those series.
Summary: I won't repeat what others all over have said. I mean this is a PS2 system, unless you've been living in a cave you know the basics already. This model: -Yes it has a fan, just a small one. -AC adapter is inside the machine, there is no power brick. -DVD drive is top loading not front loading. DVDs click in place like Game Cube. -Network adapter (for all the use it is) is integrated. -There is no "off" switch. It's either on, in standby, or unplugged from the wall.
