is it the slim version2 or the fat old first version?
#3
Also does it come with anything at all?

Can anyone else verify if this is just a one off or in other stores?

45 pounds for the slim version at extra vision if none at local sainsbury

amazes me this is hot. An old console and for £90 you could have a current gen 360 with all the media capabilities and access to cheap games that come with that.
#7
this shouldn't be hot, it's old, should be free pmsl... agreed with Guy H

£40 is cheap and the ps2 games are ten a penny.

But a current gen 360 won't play Yakuza, some of the GTA games, Devil May Cry 1-3, God Of War 1 & 2, etc...

You get the idea... That's like voting a 360 cold because the PS3 is more powerful, or voting the PS3 cold because a high end PC is more powerful...

@Guy

an old console yes.

But unlike the original discontinued xbox - there are still LOTS of games coming out. Also its 50% cheaper than the xbox 360 you quoted and will last 10x as long. 50% is a lot.
#11
Fair play if you think it's a good deal. The device is based on decade old technology or so.

40 pounds is the price of a computer game and if you have never owned a ps2 before then it is worth a buy since it has the biggest collection of games you can possibly get - most at pretty much rock bottom prices.

the xbox is probably better value but for 40 quid this is a very attractive proposition if you have very little cash to spare.
#13
OP this isn't by chance the elusive SCPH-90003 model?
#14
Unbelievably Hot!!!!!
#15
And also, it's a HOT price if you wanna get 1 for the kids and don't have nearly 100 quid to spend!

Heat n Rep from me :)
#16
yep-hot from me too-just reserved one at my local and the missus is off to collect.

The diesel engine is 117 year old technology, still works fine!

less power, cheaper, more games......sounds like a very familiar argument :whistling:

If you are on a budget then this isn't a bad deal, if you've got a bit more then yeah the xbox is good value

Like the Wii then. And that's sold a miniscule amount.

Hot - for the RRP of a mediocre "next gen" game you're getting the most successful console of all time with a ludicrous amount of great titles to play

And let's not forget, this is still the only place to play the last full release of Gran Turismo.... unless you want to pay for a backwards-compatible used PS3 off Peebay.

Bravo. If you hadn't of said that I would have done. The differnece between the PS2 and the Wii however is that the PS2 is worth owing and is actually priced to match its ageing technology.

This is hot.
#21
id buy it just to play resident evil 3 - code veronica x again ! absolutely awesome game . very tempted .plus the slimline is less than half the height of the old one , looks better.
#22
I have an original fat PS2 which is probably living on borrowed time so the big attraction for me is being able to continue playing the massive stack of games I've built up over the years. Of course that wouldn't be a problem if the bean-counters at Sony hadn't removed the backward compatibility from the PS3! :x
Very tempted to pop to Sainsburys after work, heat from me.

Decade old technology?
hmmm what console is....
Lacking built in wi-fi?
Lacking bluetooth technology?
Uses wired controllers out of the box?
Is limited by DVD disk capacity?
#24
Worth getting especially if you have one of the old original PS2s which have problems reading red dye discs such as Disgaea!

#25
I agree HOT, PS2 is still supported. Has a huge library of very good games and the library of games continues to grow as it is still supported.
PS2 games are very cheap, people who missed out on this console can buy this cheap and get lots of games cheap from ebay or [url]www.thegamecollection.net[/url]
#26
Ok, so I've just got to find a sainsburys then :p
#27
Hot deal!

whoever says this is old console isn't worth it is wrong. Wii is basically the same machine as the Gamecube and yet ppl pay so much for it. At end of the day, it's a great gaming console that brings lots of fun that counts.

To be fair to Sony, they should never have implemented it in the first place. It just increases the cost of the console.

Past consoles have shown that less than 1% of people use the backwards compatibiity features.

Everyone I know that used it were equally happy to use their PS1 and they stopped using it within a month or so once they'd bought a couple of games.

Waste of time really.

Agreed, i got my PS3 just after launch when the "no games" line actually had a bit of truth about it, but even then i only ever bothered playing one PS2 game as the couple of PS3 games i had kept me busy.
#31
I play ps1, ps2 and ps3 games on my 60gb ps3 and loving it. Also if you are going to call ********

"Past consoles have shown that less than 1% of people use the backwards compatibiity features."

Post a link to prove it.
#32
i didn't realise people still want PS2s and consider this "hot".... I might try and sell me PS2 along with the swapdiscs I've got

are these chippable??????????

i think you could chip them... although the more popular method to play your "backups" would be to use swap discs... for which you need a non-solder mod (a few plastic bits)

I don't need to prove it. I knowa lot of people all over the country with PS consoles, and currently none of them use them to play PS1 games anymore. Before the PS2 came out quite they wanted this functionality, but in reality it sounds nice, but isn't really used.

The same thing with the Wii. There is the odd game that you might play from the GameCube on occassion like Monkey Ball, but those are few and far between and its easier to just get the GameCube out. Over time, it will never happen anyway.

Going back to my point though is that if most people were told that they can pay more for backwards compatibility, few would choose it (unless it was marketed alongside other features and sold as an Elite package).

Tell me - how many people other than yourself actually play PS2 games on a PS3 or play PS1 games on their PS2? Do you really need it proven?

If you search hard enough, you might find the article I read, but I can't find it any more.

PS2 emulation is improving...and although not ideal might give you access to some classics like Shadow of the Collossus
#38
Worth getting just to play Persona 4 which came out recently (70 hours gameplay) - completed on my original still-working PS2 which I brought on the day of it's release for £299.

Yes was thinking the same myself. Especially if you have a son who's 6 1/2 years old and wouldn't know the difference between a PS2 and a PS3 anyway! :thumbsup:
#40
Good deal IMO. There are still people playing PS2s especially after they discover that PS3s are no longer backwards compatible (although it's incredibly cheeky of Sony to exclude it as they could easily add the functionality through software emulation in a firmware update)
