Sometimes, slightly older gaming systems are missing a lot of the features we have learned to expect - WiFi, highest quality graphics, and add-ons and other features. With Sony's PS2, you'll be completely satisfied even without these features!
The original Playstation offered a fair range of games, with something suitable for everyone. Whether older gamers would prefer to play fighting games, or younger ones would prefer to play with virtual pet games, Playstation made sure to have a variety.
The Playstation 2 follows in the original's footsteps - only, with more of everything! The range of games has gotten wider. The quality has gotten higher. And it can play DVD's as an added feature!
One of the reasons there are so many games is because, of course, it can run games from the original Playstation. This way, you get to save and play your favourite classics from the original Playstation without having to waste time and space switching back and forth from each console.
The console rarely lags, and nearly all the games run smoothly. The graphics quality has definitely improved from the original, and is very satisfying. The sound quality matches the graphics, with most games including a vast amount of high quality sounds and effects.
If you enjoy gaming, and are willing to spend a (very fair) price on a console that's definitely worth your time, then the Playstation 2 is for you. Check your local electronics or gaming store, or for an even better deal see if you can pick up a used one.
