"Playstation 2 is fantastic, but falls short hardware-wise."4.0 starson by jgzeidan
Pros: amazing lineup of games; has best means of control; sleek design; backed by great marketing; very popular; appeals to every audience; online play; multimedia features; backward compatible
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.
