I own a PS3, but it's only a 40GIG (can't play PS2) and I was wondering, is a PS2 still worth it? I want a slim line, but is it worth £60?

1-Jak 3

2-Okami

3-Shin magami tensi persona

4-Motor storm arctic edge

5-Marvel super sguad hero

6-Mortal kombat kollection(armageddon, deception,shalion monks)

7-Shadow of colossus

8-Mercenaries playground of destruction better than the second part.

9-Prince of persia the two thrones

10-Devil may cry 3

11-Twisted metal black

12-The incredible hulk ultimate destruction.

13-Sly copper

14-Ape escape

15- ssx 3 & on tour

16-Eye toy games

And still upcoming games.

I bought the slimline PS2 back in June and it is definitely worth it! I'm currently enjoying the Ratchet and Clanks, Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3, Timesplitters and GTA: San Andreas. The best part is the games are really cheap. Most of the games I got were under 5 euro. So I say go for it. You won't regret it! :)

It's most definitely worth it! I recommend it! In fact I'm going to pick another one up next pay day and rebuild my collection as I'm missing SO many games and I'm itching to play them.

Yeah man, that sucks not having the fully compatible 3, so if you have any interest in PS2 games go for it, there are still plenty ps1 games worth the time depending on what you like.

YES! Get a PS2. The sheer amount of games mean you will definantly find a game to play. You don't even have to buy a PS2 slim, (I think they are a waste of money), but there are so many games to choose from. Well worth the money.

A ps2 is basically the cost of one PS3 games ($60), I still have my ps2, and don't plan on selling it. There is at least one great game for everyone on the PS2. Like mine is Warship Gunner 2 :)

Kingdom Hearts I, and II are among my most beloved games for the PS2. They're really quite confusing so be sure to pay close attention. The God of War games are just epic!

yeah buy the ps2, although from my experience the large system were awesome but the ps2 slim parts are kind of easy to find for cheap as such laser and controller ports.buyingthe ps2 is a must especially for a gamer.

I would get one, I got mine for the price of a single game($60) and it's definitely been worth it. Huge catalog of games and I always find myself playing it when not gaming on my PC or lolWii.

Go for it. I've been gaming since the late 80s and I have to say the PS2 is probably my favorite or second favorite system of all time. The sheer amount of games for it is amazing, and the variety is bar none.

If you have a HD tv and PS3 it might be hard to get excited about last gen games. I can't find a reason to plug my PS2 in anymore, PS3 all the way now.

Unless you havn't yet played Metal Gear Solid 2, 3 and Bully because their just as good ascurrent gen games or better.

What a load of bull.

Ive had my 60GB BC Launch PS3 running almost everyday either playing a PS3 game or Watching a dvd. I dont use it for BC cos it sucks at it.

My point is, what you said is a load of crock and you mustve simply been unlucky with yours or quoting speculation youve read.

A PS2 is a ABSOLUTE MUST OWN. I have a slim but im goina buy a boxed phat ps2 if I can find one. I dislike the slim simply because you gotta love originals.
