The redesigned PS2

Recommended Posts

That is very skinny. It's too bad they waited so long to sell it. I would buy one but I'm already happy with the one I have and I just don't feel like spending $150 so that I can have a slightly skinnier version.

But it is pretty cool :)

If its DVD drive is better than the POS in the original PS2 (which won't play 3/4 of my movie DVDs), I might consider getting one. The built-in Ethernet adapter adds to the appeal.

EDIT: if anyone's wondering what it's going to cost in Britain, the answer is around £105.

Is the HD built into it as well? Because I can't see one of the current ones fitting into that thing.

yup

honestly if the thing was made better i would have grabed one(original PS2). i have seen so many returned. most of my friends have all had issues with it. i hardly ever see a game cube or Xbox returned, much less due to bad parts. i never had issues with the PS1. come on sony make your products last, like the PS1.

my friend can never get any burned Cd's to play on his PS2.

if the HD is built in and it isn't a hunk a crap i might buy one

Mine had problems with pirated DVDs. But I think it was more of the issue of the idiot who burned them.

My ps2 dvd player (movies and games BTW) has seen almost excessive use from me for well over 3 years. No problems what-so-ever.

The PlayStation 2 was released in October 2000. It wasn't released in Japan until March of 2000.

And the XBOX was released in North America in January 2001 if not than near early 2001.

Like I said, it was only a few months older.

Wtf, XBox and Gamecube were both released December (or maybe November) 2001. I remember this because I was in my Computer Maintainance and Repair class then and someone brought the X-Box in to demo the day after it came out.

I think I need to get the laser replaced on mine. As far as I know, Sony does it for free since it's a known defect.

yea you're right. i meant 1999. i thought it came out in japan in 1999, it would still have the same hardware as the american version.

by the way when did the original playstation come out?

The original was 1995, i belive. Before that sony had something called the CD:I, which was like a modern-day DVD player in size, with some really shitty games, like the ones on the Mega CD (like 'vampire stalker' or whatever it was called), they shocked the world with the Playstation, and the Nintendo and Sega war was suddenly irrelevant..

OH well, it doesn't matter. In a year or two XBOX 2, PS3, and whatever crazy name nintendo has for the new gamecube is coming out. But yes, this "new" PS2 was released a little late. But you know, if people weren't still buying these systems, than they might not be making stuff like this. Just yesterday I overheard a person at Target asking them if she could buy an XBOX system.

IIRC that "crazy" name is "GameCube 2".

I believe the PS2 is still outselling both the X-Box and the GC by a very large margin.

Hell, PS1 is outselling the Xbox in Japan. And yes, I'll probably be getting this new one once my old PS2 craps out(given, of course, there are compatibility issues with the PS3 which I don't foresee).

Anyone remember the redesigned NES? That was the shit. As well as making it look better they also made it work better.

I heard it was something different. I might be thinking of a different product of Nintendo then.

The PS2 is outselling the XBOX, but not by much. They are both pretty close. It's the GameCube that fell behind.
