"What was the reviewer talking about?"5.0 starson by neocarrillo
Pros: Slim and small, huge library of games, online built in
Cons: None it does what it can.
Summary: I hate the review for the ps2 on cnet. It's stupid, look the new ps2 is smaller than any console and doesn't overheat. Anyway the ps2 has a huge library of games since it came out in 2000 not only that it has hundreds of games from ps1. I don't know about you but I was one of 100 million that had a ps1 and I have lots of classic ps1 games.
It is true that compared to xbox and gamecube in graphics it's getting old. I look at it this way ps2 was being made to battle dreamcast (R.I.P.). They didn't know about xbox cause everyone thought it was a rumor or it was gonna play pc games only. So microsoft and nintendo had plenty of time to make their gpu's.
You know what though ps2 is approaching 100 million aswell, not bad for a system that has inferior graphics huh. Anyway ps2 is the best console for what counts, games. Xbox and gamecube can have the better graphics but at the end of the day it's all about the games and that's why ps2 is number 1 worldwide.
Exclusives like grand theft auto whose controversy just increases the sales of it and ps2, gran turismo and many more is what drives the success of ps2. I hope my review helps people see the bigger picture between ps2 and the competition.
