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 system itself is good times...lots of fun and it is what it is, a PS2. This new slimmer design is almost too small if you can imagine that. Very thin and light. Would buy again regardless and very good deal for the price. Sometimes it feels like I need to insert the discs very carefully out of fear of breaking the disc mechanism. Overall A on the fun, A- on the slimmer design.
Summary: I have a PS2 with laser read issue. After trying all the fixes I could find on the web I decided to try and get a newer generation PS@ that was supposed to have less issues. I didn't get lucky with mine. I still have some issues but didn't really expect much else getting a used one. Other than that system still works great.
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!
Summary: I've never played a video game or owned anything of the sort, but brought this because I got hooked in DDR at a friend's place. And since DDR is the only game I play, I want a cheap good quality thing. FIRST TIME OWNERS: you will need to buy memory card along with this (and no, they are not the tiny mem card you use in cameras etc).
Summary: Four years ago my parents bought me a ps2 slm for christmas Rachet Deadlocked edition. So on christmas morning I unboxed it and I was pretty pleased with how slim it had gotten. My dad helped me put it together and we were set. When it first came on I knew it was going to last. Even then I took great care of it. I'd wipe it maybe twice a day and it stayed clean I didn't actually play it much because of the fact that it hooked up on our family room T.V.
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.
