Pros Largest library of games, huge 3rd party support, DVD features right out the box, familiar controller
Cons being the oldest means that X-Box and Gamecube have better graphics, heavily criticized for being released 1st

For those of you who say the X-Box has better graphics overall, which it does, remember that the PS2 was released 1 year earlier. Like the controller and how familiar it is. (if it ain't broken don't fix it, but do add some new stuff if needed) And, unlike the X-Box, it can play DVDs right out the box. Still, DVD remote highly recommended. As for the 2 controller port part, not really much of an issue for me as I'm pretty much a loner. Overall, get it. Graphics are still solid, as proven by games like MGS3.

Cons Hardware not very well built; visuals not on par with Xbox; hard to develop games for; supports only two players; online play not as good as Xbox's service;
Summary Sony once again offers a great console that has the full package. The Playstation 2 has a phenominal lineup of games that are bound to appeal to any gamer, core of mainstream. It offers many multimedia features along with online support, but these features just aren't as well done as Microsoft's Xbox, which seemingly trumps all the PS2's features. But despite some harware issues, there is no doubt the Playstation 2 will provide you with endless entertainment, which is what it's for.
