The Last stand of the PS2 ... 99 dollars

Forums - Sony Discussion - The Last stand of the PS2 ... 99 dollars

I think I might buy one, if I buy brand new and keep everything in the box, that $100 could turn into $1000 15 - 20 years down the road if it's sold on Ebay. The PS2 does have the biggest and best video game library of all.

I may buy one. I sold mine when I got my launch ps3, but now I fear that my ps3 could crap out on me and I won't be able to get another BC one from Sony.

My BC ps3 crapped out. Sony sent me the same 60gb model brand new to boot. I think it's also required by US law or something so you don't need a ps2.

 

 

Mine crapped out on me (the disc drive's motor broke so no discs would spin, lol) and I got a refurbed 60gb back (looked brand new except for some scuff marks on the side).  I'm honestly not all that worried about it.  For every person that sends there's in and gets another one back, they can then refurbish that person's system and ship it to somebody else.

At worst, I'd just have to wait a bit longer than usual while they refurbish my own system.

In my case, I got the infamous YLOD. The ps3 sony sent back looked new. Maybe it was refurbished after all lol. I couldn't find any marks at all.

I actually still have my slim ps2 anyway lol.

I'm still waiting on sony to send me a refurb 60gb. Seems like it has taken forever.

I don't think that will ever happen b/c there are way too many ps2 out there.

Ouch.  It only took me ~2 weeks.

@MM its quite likely that Sony gives a higher margin on the PS2 to keep it on the shelves as the software sales are winding down.



Tease.

Battlefield Bad Company 2 > Modern Warfare 2

Perfect. I'll pick one up to install in my car. A silver one to match no doubt.

There still might be some life left in ye ole girl.

How is it that this made it to the 3rd page without anybody noticing that? I think we all just assumed it was true because it seemed like something that could logically happen.Hilarious.

It is true (as far as I know).  In the original neogaf thread, they OP mentioned that it had been "a long time coming" and linked to that article to show jsut how damn long ago this had been predicted.

Everything else, however, is legite.  The guy is a long-time and rather well-known neogaf poster.  He mentioned the latest circulars he's seen, and that is all.

What's ironic, though, is that my boss has been convinced of a ps3 price cut for months now.  Three weeks ago, he comes in the store and goes "Did you hear?  They finally annoucnced a date for that ps3 price cut!"  "Oh yeah?"  "Yeah.  April 5th!"

I rolled my eyes at him, because I had heard nothing about this anywhere, and also because I knew that a ps3 price drop was highly unlikely.  And now I find out about this.  Well, he got the date right!
