...thats right, a PlayStation 2...not 3. I was in Circuit City the other day and I saw them selling PS2s for 129 bucks. And I also saw that most of the games are 20 dollars or less. Do you think I should get it?

The graphics on the PS2 are good enough and I dont feel like shelving our 600 bucks for the PS3 (that is highway robbery IMO).

freaking agreed.

There are A LOT of great games to play on PS2.

Including, Blood Will Tell. A game where you are a samarai who demons stole your body parts so you have a knee with a cannon and sword for arms. You go around killing demons to get your body parts back. So much fun.

I did this twice actually. I had a 360 that I sold on EBay and used that money for PS2, games and other stuff. The graphics just werent good enough for me anymore so I decided to go to Atlantic City for my b-day.

I went into A.C. with 350 bucks and left with 580. I then bought a 360 the next day and then sold my PS2

PS2 is certainly worth $129. Tons of great games, and you can get used games cheap as hell.

Its been $129 for awhile, but still a great buy. The GTA games are always good, and the Final Fantasies if you are into RPGs.

Yeah, I have heard great things about those games.

I have been out of the loop for sooooo long as far as gaming goes, so I was blown away by PS2. I am 24 now and I hadnt played video games at all through out college so I really wont know what I am missing out on as far as the Wii, PS3 or Xbox 360 goes.

Another deciding factor for me was the number of games. The PS2 has a TON of games and the price is great.

coming from someone who loves games and spends a lot of time playing...dont bother. if ur so out of the loop that u havent gotten around to a ps2 in the last 6 years...dont bother...use ur time and money for more productive things. learn an instrument or goto the gym or find something more productive. i love these games, buut they are a curse in a way too.

Hrmm...a PS2 from CC...

NAH...I recommend getting one used from Gamestop or EB.

Cheaper and should work just as good, if it doesn't just take it back and they'll give you another one.

Now a PS3? Yeah get that new.

But a PS2...nah, get it used and save the money for some used great games.

At this point, its really not worth buying any of that stuff new even if its 129 and 20 bucks for games since there are sooooo many used ones out there that work just as good for a lot less.

I'd get an xbox over a ps2....if for no other reason than the hard drive. PS2 might have better games (God of War is exclusive isn't it)...but xbox does have Halo.

I wouldn't at this point. Hell there are more PS2 games coming out, there aren't anymore Xbox games coming out.

The only reason I'd go for an Xbox over a PS2 is because of how simple the soft-modding process is on a regular Xbox. Granted, you'll forfiet the ability to play Xbox live.... But you'll be able to played burned/downloaded games, emulated games (SNES, NES, TG16, Genesis, MAME, and more),Custom and homebrew games, and a million other useful apps available for modded Xbox's. BUT... The PS2's got two new RPGs coming out this week (Dawn of Mana and Odin Spere). Hell, the PS2's library has never been weaker than the PS3's (borderline sad). So... I guess it's still mixed feelings for me.

Are you serious???

Only the best game(s) ever!

The 2nd one just came out a couple months ago.

Best 2 games on PS2 bar none.
