I know the PS2 isn't the latest of consoles but a lot of people still have them and I thought this deal might be of interest.
I went to Argos today to buy a twin pack of wireless PS2 controllers (cat. number 567/9292 ) which I'd seen in the current Argos catalogue for 19.99 and found the price had dropped to 9.99.
Back home I checked on-line and found the price was correct and it states:
'This product is priced at £19.99 in our 2010 Spring/Summer catalogue. Current selling price valid until 09/03/2010'
I've tried them out and they work very well and my boys are very pleased with them.No more trailing wires to trip over!
Sorry I can't add a picture, I have tried but don't seem to have had much success.

does anyone still have a ps2?
#2
Would these work in a PS3? Cant see why not as a normal ps2 wired pad does (with PSX to usb adaptor)

Would like to use these as cheap 3rd and 4th pads, and possible on the pc as well.

Have reserved 1 @ Nuneaton, 3 left

EDIT

Would 'bay ref number 270535714331 be suitable for my needs? (adaptor)
#3
hot just reserved 2!
#4
Nice one....

Heat.

Picture for you OP

Well a wired one will........no reason why the wireless technology between the pad and the thing you put into the PS2 will make it not work.

Is six axis the only thing missing when comparing a ps2 pad with a ps3 pad?

Yep, and there are still games being made for it! Granted, the Guitar Hero series seem to be the most common release, which would actually make these a bit pointless...:whistling:

Just reserved thanks, been looking for theses at a good price for a while,Both my kids have the ps2 as there not allowed to touch dads ps3,unless he watches over them like a hawk.lol
#11
please kill the ps2.

you wouldn't buy a VCR and VHS tapes would you?
#12
Be careful guys the quality of these will be poor, more than likely all the buttons will be stiff and make it difficult to play games with.
#13
PS3 controllers are bluetooth. I imagine that these will probably work via an IR receiver which goes into one or two of the controller ports on the front of the PS2 which the PS3 doesn't have so I doubt these could work on the PS3 unfortunately.

The PS2 did have USB 1.0 as well but very few accessories used it and I doubt these would really. I could be wrong though.

I've been saying that for years, whilst the PS2 was still in it's prime in fact, awful console that it was.

You obviously know ****** all about games then.

The PS2 still probably has some of the best and widest range of games of any console in history.

I own a PS3 and a 360 but I still play my PS2 and Xbox 1 for that matter - great games are great games regardless of whether they have cutting edge graphics.

Hot deal!

And you clearly know precisely nothing about me so less of it.

I have had every console pretty much since the days of the Megadrive and the PS2 is easily my least favourite of any console which I have ever owned. Just a matter of personal choice though I suppose.

but he`s right you clearly know nothing, if you can say your least favourite was the PS2, then i assume you dislike,

Gran Turismo, Metal Gear Solid, God Of War, Final Fantasy Series, Grand Theft Auto, Tekken, SIlent Hill, Dragion Quest, Ico & Shadow of the Colossus, Kingdom Hearts, Devil May Cry, Burnout etc etc etc.....

and just because you have had every console, doesn't give you fact of right in fact as your gaming sights are so limited having all consoles is pointless perhaps PC gaming may be more your thing as you can pick and choose, the PS2 has sold nearly 130 million consoles, so your personal preference is in the minority.

As for the comment regarding VHS and VCR, no I wouldn't buy one, but I would buy tapes for my existing one, as I would buy these controllers for my existing PS2.

For cheap and awesome gaming, my PS2 still rocks my world. I have a wide choice of games to choose from, which lets me pick up top class games (e.g. Shadow of the Colossus) for < £3, with the every helpful [url]www.metacritic.com[/url] helping steer me towards the true cream of the crop. That said, I only play video games for 2-3 hours a week at most (probably more like 2-3 hours a month on average) as real life keeps me way too busy :(

Suspect an XBox 360 in 1-2 years might replace it (as it moves into a similar category of plentiful cheap games) but right now I'm 3-4 years behind the curve and reaping the financial and game quality benefits.

Of course, the gaming industry would also love everyone to upgrade there consoles regularly, buy the latest games at £30-40, including all the titles that really didn't meet the hype. And I too start to think "why don't I have an HD console, I have an HD TV, I'm living in the stone age !!!", esp. when I see comments condemning the PS2 to the stone age. But I have learnt to ignore those "keeping up with the Jones" thoughts, hard though marketing makes it, and enjoy what little gems I already have.

That said - are these controllers any good ? Would like to ditch some more wires from my life, but not if they are gonna be tough to use ? Also, from the reviews, looks like they have problems keeping a signal for some people ?

I would if i found that a VCR still did everything I needed it to, I was happy with it, and upgrading to a DVD Recorder was to expensive for me to justify based on the amount of time I actually got to use it... :roll:

(Also I'm quite happy for my 2 young children to use the 'VCR', but wouldn't want them anywhere near the 'DVD Recorder' :p )

To be honest once you have laid out the initial cost of the console, as little as £99 for Xbox or £200 for a PS3 Slim then you can wait for the latest games to drop in price and you will pick up the best games on platium for £10 or less or go preowned. Also with the PS3 a built in blueray player makes it a quality addition to your home especially if you have an HD TV.

Don't get me started on this.

The PS2 sold in droves in the west because of GTA3. It was failing terribly before that was released and owes the vast majority of it's success outside Japan to Rockstar.

Most of those games which you mentioned there by the way were multiformat titles and no I'm not a PC gamer at all, I don't even own a gaming PC these days and my favourite console of this generation is easily the PS3, I just never found the PS2 to be anything particularly special.

Shadow of Colossus and Ico were awesome though, I will give you that but the installation base of the PS2 basically made it almost like the Wii of it's day.

My PS3 pads have analogue L2 & R2 buttons. My PS2 ones are digital.... so racing games that use these buttons as accelerators will not work very well.

The PS2 was selling like hot cakes from the word go...GTA sparked people to get one but the majority already had one anyway

The games mentioned were multi format....arent most games?

Your bringing a lot to your argument...Its your personal opinion, its wrong but hey...hence not having a single person agree with you :whistling:

I'm sorry but that's nonsense unfortunately unless you can provide evidence to suggest otherwise.

And I used the phrase 'matter of personal choice' a few posts up for a reason.

I can't stand the PS3,, no cheats is no good to me :) Still play on the PS2 and have found the same game on amazon can be dearer in PS2 than PS3!!

Hi there, I'm a new user but have browsed HUKD for a few years now and want to throw in my two cents.

If you wanted to get these pads working with the PS3, buy a PS2 to USB converter (which were on here recently for about £1.49 from amazon I think?) and plug in the receiver or connector that comes with the pads, I don't see why that wouldn't work.

Also on the topic of the PS2, the graphics were amazing, FFX was mind blowing, the consoles power was a huge improvement over the PSX, the game line up was huge and above all it had a DVD player built in that didn't require a remote control to use (like the Xbox). I don't think GTA 3 was the defining factor in the PS2's popularity as my first 2 games were X-Squad and Tekken Tag Tournament, both of which blew me away in terms of graphics and playability. Plus the original VHS cassette showcasing the PS2's potential showed footage from The Bouncer and Dark Cloud, not GTA3. The price was an issue though admittedly but it was worth every penny as mine is still alive and kicking and happily plays Dark Cloud, Tekken Tag, Dark Chronicle, FFX etc....

P.S. Good deal OP

You have a launch PS2 which is still working perfectly ? Well done because I don't think that happens very often.

I had The Bouncer and Tekken Tag at launch too. My original PS2 was a Japanese import which I had nearly a year before the UK launch (I shudder when I think about how much I paid for it) and whilst the games were slightly impressive they were never really anything special.

It wasn't a terrible machine on the whole, I just never liked it very much personally.

Good tip about the controllers by the way, I forgot about those adaptor things although I'm only assuming that these use a PS2 controller port to IR bridge (nobody has confirmed here) and they may actually need the PS2's built in IR in which case the PS3 definitely wouldn't see them.

I'm assuming there is a male ps2 IR which connects to the PS2, which reveives the wireless signal. Am also assuming that said PS2 input could be inputted into a PS2>usb connector, which could then be plugged into your ps3.

Hey still got my PS2, and the deal is still current as I have reserved some today. No more trailing wires for the dog to trip over!
