you can turn your ps2 into a wii style game player.its going to be a damn lot cheaper and to be honest its going to have a better range of games and most of us already have one sat somewhere in the house.once sony relaunch the new style ps2 in jan this is the market they will no doubt look to take as the consumer base is the biggest by far in the world and this will breath new life into it.

there are more ps2`s in homes than any other console so most would just need to buy the interactive games and other games can be picked up for as little as £1 or £2 in most second hand shops like game/gamestation etc
ps how easy is it to get a wii for £179 not very lol.you can pick up 2nd hand ps2`s for as little as £25 thats a tenth of the price of some 2nd hand wii`s lol

Some of the prices people are paying for wiis atm.. if i were their son i would be far happier with a PS3

Thats a bad example considering ps2 has been out for over 5 years.

Thats like saying theres more dvd players than blu ray plays in the home since the format is more expensive and been out less time.

That reminds me I have my ps2 I was gonna play lol

Yeah the PS2 had the worst graphics last gen, not that they are bad but they are jaggy, and compared to the gamecube and xbox games they are far behind.

Has some games I really like though(tekken and soul calibur games) and loads of imported rpgs,GTA, Metal Gear Solid 3 still not as good as the ps1 though.

its a true fact and its getting updated again so its still got another 2 or 3 years of life left in the system and i think the ps2 is now in its 7th year.the graphics on the wii are no better than the graphics of the ps2 from what i have seen.

You need your eyes tested then, at worst its a slightly better Gamecube which alone was better graphically than the PS2.

I think the PS2 is great, at the time these graphics were probably equivalent to the ps3's graphics today, The games on the PS2 are really playable, theres a large variety of games and overall its a great console. I must admit i havent played mine for a while since i got my wii but thats the way the market works, you trade the old to the new.

The ps2 is 7 years old. Of course the graphics are going to be ****. You talk about it as if the graphics were **** when it came out when in fact they were brilliant and there was no competition for them at the time.

Anyway. Its not all about the graphics, my NES gets a dusting down and a good play sometimes

No competition? Xbox had far superior graphics, faster loading times, a built in hard drive, much better manufacturing.

Lol, and you dont wake up screaming thinking about bf1942?

If you play a game like Tomb Raider anniversary you will see its still possible to get some nice looking games out of the machine.,

My ( Amstrad ) 464 with green screen .... thats where the real gamers are

gran turismo say no more awesome graphics on ps2

graphics aren't everything, its the playability of the games, the nintendo is a prime example of that, the wii is nowhere near the standard of the 3G consoles but it is very playable and enjoyable and that's why it has out sold the 360 and the PS3 when the 360 had about a year's headstart. the game street fighter was out donkeys years ago and has made a return in the wii as one of their retro classic games and it still sells 20 years on with no visual improvements.
