Summary: I just got my PS2 Slim in yesterday and I am blown away. I was cautious that these were still advertised as brand new with Prime shipping. It is almost too good to be true. Thankfully the unit I received was brand new. It felt like I had just gone down to BestBuy and picked up a new console. The box was dust free as was everything inside. If you are looking for a brand new PS2 this is a great place to pick one up!
Summary: backround - i have been gaming since the early 90s with the genesis i own over 25 systems and over 2,000 games MY REVIEW after the demise of sega i was devastated.. i bought my dreamcast during launch and had every sega system. i reluctantly bought a Ps2 fat late 2000 after i unboxed it i was skeptical "'could this be better than sega?'' i doubted it.
Summary: I took a big chance and bought a used Playstion 2. When it came it looked like it was new, box and all were in great condition and it got here faster than I thought it would. I have been on it every day for hours at a time with no problems. I will keep buying for Amazon.
Summary: This is the 4th version of the Ps2 I've owned, 1 regular Ps2 and 2 of the first run of the slim consoles. This system is awesome and I really like the redesigned buttons. The PS2 is no longer being manufactured, so grab'm up while you can!
Summary: First of all I grew up playing the old fatter ps2 and loved it so much and played the crap out of it! If you ever owned a ps2, it will be hard for anyone to argue against the ps2 that since the beginning it has had the best games ever hands down. I played my old ps2 years ago for a long time untill it broke. :'( RIP. But now just recently I decided to go back to the good times and went and ordered myself a brand new newer version, the ps2 slim.
Summary: This is a Playstation 2, arguably the greatest console built so far. With the removal of backwards compatibility from Playstation 3, those who want to experience the diverse catalog of PS2 games will need to buy this system. Best to buy it soon as they're no longer being manufactured and prices will sky rocket. Addendum Feb 23, 2013: With the official announcement of the Playstation 4, reliable backwards compatibility may be a thing of the past.
Summary: Bought it 15 months ago. Still works. Functions the same. Backwards compatible with PS1 games. Plays DVDs. I don't game with consoles online, but the connection is there, so I don't see why it wouldn't. Cons? Doesn't have a hard drive. Buy a memory card. I have a PS2 memory card in the first slot, and a PS1 memory card in the second slot. Works out nicely. PS1 games won't save to a PS2 memory card.
Summary: My 6 year old had dropped his old PS2 trying to move it from one room to another. Even though he has every console out, he was very upset bc he has so many PS2 games and he always seem to go back to this console. I refused to buy him a brand new one out of fear that the same thing may happen again. I ordered this one, it arrived quickly, well packaged, and it great condition! Most importantly my son couldn't thank me enough, I earned a lot of points that day.
