Summary: bought ps2 machine a year ago from this seller keith1981 but didn't use it for one year(my fault, should've found the problem earlier), did contact seller shortly after i received the product but was led to believe my memory card has problem not the machine, bought a brand new memory card recently, machine still gave me same message "memory card not inserted", went to several game stores in my neighborhood, was told the machine is defective
Excerpt: the ps2 is an outdated gaming system though with low quality graphics it also breaks down easily.in my experience the ps2 should get upgraded to the ps3. Sony should either give everyone refund or a ps3 upgrade. if it was me i would burn all remaining ps2's.If you have one get rid of it and get a ps3 or xbox Reviewer is an employee or otherwise affiliated with the brand.
Excerpt: I traded in my xBOX 360 a while back at gamestop for a PS2 and I regret it DAILY!!! Things that worked in my Xbox don't in the Playstaion. I have a deal or no deal at home dvd game which worked perfectly in my xbox but it runs so slow and eventually freezes in my playstation.. Also game selection SUCKS!!! I have had more problems with "glitchy" games in the playstation then any console I have ever owned.
Excerpt: Brought this last Christmas for my daughter. About four months later, the system just stopped. She went to turn it on and nothing happened. Tried to take it back to the store with the register reciept to get it exchanged, and couldn't because it was over ninety days. Called the company and they said that it was nothing that they could do since it was only covered for niney days. Since then, they have raised it to a year. I was out a system and money.
Excerpt: i bought the play sstation 2 slim line for my daughter several years ago thinking we would have lots of fun together and years of play out of it. i was wrong on many things. they did not have very many games for her age group they were either way to young or way to old so for a ten year old girl not very good. we used it more as a very high priced dvd player than a game console.
Excerpt: Well, let's see. I bought the PS2 within the first 90 days it was out. Remember the bundles? Bought it w/o it. Got a hook up @ Kay-Bee toy store. Anyway, after playing with it for a while, the disk-drive froze. Did not want to open or close. Called Sony to get some warranty. They said only 90-day limited was covered. Went to the Microsoft Xbox. Have not had a problem ever since. Oh yeah, they have warranty for their PRODUCTS! That was the worst $350 I spent.
Cons: It can't use a harddrive, what good is a network adapter if you can't use a hard-drive for online gaming. Also the fan is like 1 inch, and it heats up super fast. Another thing going back to the ps lid. This exposes the lense to dust and other things.
