Pros The de-facto console for this generation
Cons Weak online
Summary If you can only buy one system there is only one choice as to what to buy: PlayStation 2. While it maybe not have the best graphics, it has without a doubt the best library of games over all the genres. If you are wonder what system will "likely" get a particular game you can easily assume PS2 will get the game. The systems only flaw is ist online functionality. The lack of an "integrated" online service is unfortunate, but given taht only 20% of console owners currently have broadband though and ISP its is easy to see why such a function was a low priority this generation. With that said some of the most popular online games ever appeared on PS2, so it hard not to admit Sony did exactly what it needed to and no more.
Finally, if you are reading this you are likely in the market to buy a PSTwo, so I will just say go ahead. Unlike XBOX or GameCube, the Sony PSTwo will see continued support for the next few years. Even now the system is a worthwhile long term investment.
Pros Tons of Games in all Levels
Cons Outdated Graphics
Summary I have nothing against this fantastic console, just in the Graphics Department compare to its neighboring Xbox which has a lot of processing power,733 Mhz vs. 299 Mhz But when it comes to games PS2 has no competition at all !
See it for yourself visit your nearest video game stores : ) sometimes its not only the graphics count.
Pros Small, extremely quiet, left it on for 24hrs and no problems. Best of all it has a 1 year warranty. The old machine had only 90 days.
Pros I own the first edition and the second edition.(I liked the second edition better)its more portable than the others.
Cons does not have an automatic saving system(you need to buy memory cards)
Pros smaller, built-in ethernet
Cons The last 2 times sony's rebuilt the PS2 they have taken things out of it. The first time they put a built-in reciever for DVD's and took out the i.link, now they took out the expansion bay, the automatic drive (now it flips), and the infrared reciever. Th
