Product Description

Product Description

PlayStation works hard to make gaming accessible to anyone, at every level. Who says Grandma won't like Gran Turismo? And if you somehow get tired of gaming with Grandma, the PS2 system's affordable price tag leaves you with plenty of extra cash to try all 1,800 games, then get the most out of your PS2 system by joining multiplayer games online and playing your CD and DVD collection (some PS2 consoles require a network adapter, sold separately, to access online multiplayer games). But it's not just about the number of titles; the PlayStation 2 system's enhanced visuals combine gravity, friction, and environmental elements to produce amazingly accurate physical simulations and high-resolution 3D graphics, and the Dolby Digital AC-3 and DTS sound capabilities further enhance your gaming experience.

Manufacturer's Description

While inheriting the basic functions and design philosophy of the current PlayStation 2, the internal design architecture of this newly redesigned PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system model has been completely overhauled. Slimmer and more lightweight, its internal volume has been reduced by 75 percent, overall weight has been halved and the thickness trimmed down to 2.8cm (thickness of current model is 7.8cm). Its size is almost as small as a hardcover book, making it easier to carry around. Equipped with both a modem port and an integrated Ethernet port for network gaming, the new PlayStation 2 sets new standards in the fusion of design and functionality.

First of all, if you already own the current PS2 larger old model and there is nothing wrong with it then really there is no point on replacing it with the newer slimline version even though the price is that good. If you haven't got a PS2 or your having problems with it then so should consider getting this as its 75% smaller so much easier to move around and store, looks much more attractive even though the last one had a very unique image and this also very quiet plus it does not over-heat like a lot of people are saying becuase it has an extension on the DC power adapter to absorb the heat. If you had disc tray problems or disc-error reading on the previous PS2 (which I never had) the new slimline has changed the disc tray opens as the slider opening failed to work a lot of the time, slimline has the same flip-lid style that the Playstation 1 had and its much better. If your thinking about getting one or you will be sortly, I suggest you go for this new colour version which was released on the 13th.
The new Silver Satin style finish looks gorgeous and makes sense to go for this over the black one because today 90% of audio/visual and electrical equipment is grey or silver and not much black anymore even though black does look quite nice, but if your entertainment systems and electrical products are silver this will look rather splended. If your fussy about everything to look good (like myself) then you may as well get the silver controller, memory card and remote but if your not to bothered and you have some of them in black dont just replace them as the black and silver ones do exactly the same thing.

In my books, this has to be one of the best consoles I've used yet. As an upgrade from the original PS2, the difference is amazing and I'm glad I chose this.

Actually, I had a PS2 a few years back, but I've tried all the consoles since then, and nothing compared to the fun I got of the PS2. Luckily, I had my very old PSX tucked away somewhere, so I've been using that. And the great thing about this upgrade is that you not only get the enjoyment out of current PS2 titles, but older PSX games as well. I know, not a new feature, since the original PS2 did this, but it's still valuable, considering there are so many great PSX titles.

If you think the box the console comes in is small, you should see inside. I'll admit, its been packaged very economically - no space wasted, so putting everything back in will be a laugh one day (should the day come!). But I couldnt believe how small the console was - just 9" by 6", and 1" thick! About the size of a short novel, or a bit larger than a DVD case. Theirs fewer vents though - just a couple of slots at the back, and at the front. The controller is improved too - the buttons have a matt surface which are no slip and very comfy, as with the silver plastic. The analog sticks are much better quality too, and the controller actually feels lighter. The only thing I would say is that the lid does feel very flimsy, but I don't intend of giving it a rough time, so I don't worry about it.

Their is no On/Off button at the back like the old PS2, so its just a case of pulling out the thinner AC cord when your not using the console for a long time, or you put it on Standy when your taking a break.

I have to admit being biased here. But the Ps2 is still the best console I've played. The game library is fantastic and it has backward compatibility ( unlike the PS3 and 4, shame on you Sony ). This particular one was in beautiful condition as described by seller. Extremely happy with purchase and would buy from this seller again. Delivery and price excellent. 5 Stars all day long

The PS2, only way cooler.

Good game play, has excellent picture, excellent sound and smooth controls (depending on the game). But most of all the quality figure of the PS2 silver, smaller model stand out: the looks are brilliant. The silver is way better than black, and so are the controls. The smaller model is no smaller in the area of the top and the bottom; the console is just far slimmer, easy to fit on top of a DVD player and under the TV screen. Far more useful than a massive Xbox console.

The PS2 can play the games of not just the PS2, but you can play games from the PS1. So, if you don't want to, you don't even need to get a new console, because this updates the graphics on the PS1 games. As well as all the games the PS2 can even play (music) CD's, or DVD's. Both work extremely well. The DVD's are as in excellent picture as a modern TV, plus the sound of the CD's work extremely well, sounding just as good as a CD Player. The console is clever, if you try to play a pirate copy of a film then the PS2 silver will automatically: Drain all colour, allow no sound, (or both), or it will quite simply not play the CD at all. Don't worry if a red screen comes up saying it can't read the disc, it is very sensitive to fingerprints and other things that can get on CD's, so you will most probably just haft to wipe the disc.

The equipment you need for this console is:

Up to 4 controls (the maximum amount PS2 will allow), depending on how many people you are planning to play with, most games are two-player so I recommend getting 2 controls. You can get wireless controls, which are far superior to normal PS2 controls. Do not worry about getting a separate system-link; it is already inside the console. The system link is reeaally cool.
