My PS2 is gettin real shitty lately, it might as well be dead...
Anyway I want to get a new one, but all these people on other sites say they burn out easy cuz theres a real small fan, and others say that all u have to do is put it in an open area and not on a rug. Everyone is just f'n confusing me. So Im gonna ask on this forum so maybe I can get a strait answer.

Are these new Slim PS2's very reliable / good?
Id rather have a new PS2 cuz I like the games more, but if the slim ones suck Ill just replace my Xbox which died a few months ago...


Peace. Thanks.

Cool. How long have you had it??
Ill be getting PS3 or X360 so I dont even think Ill be playing it for 1 year.
Plus incase something does happen, the Slim model does come with a 1-Year Manufacturers warranty.
So you use your PS2 for watching DVDs? Cuz I heard the life span will decreae faster if so..

Oh and how bout the overheating thing?
I know they just did a recall on the AC adapter, if you got the new cord, does that help with the heat issues at all?
Thanks!


Anyone else?

save ya money bro new playstation 3 should be out soon.
Yea I know... I said that earlier. And PS3 wont be in the US until the summer next year. Its supposed to drop in Japan in the Spring so we'll prolly get it in summer/fall.
I dont think I can wait a year to play any videogames, and I have games I wanna play that I just bought for PS2... Its only 150 bucks anyway...

If ya consoles are burnin' out, you must really be over-using them ...

I had a PS2 for 4 years ....I know peeps who had one since the day they came out, watch a DVD a night on 'em, besides playin' games, and everythin' still in order ...

What are y'all doin' to 'em? LOL..

Well Im talking about the new PS2s... they are very different...

I got my PS2 from a friend last year, he had it for a while, so it was pretty old...
And my Xbox was a launch Xbox...

But if anyone else could help me with the new PS2s please

I have a slim PS2 and it's held up so far. But yeah wait for these next generation consoles, wait until both are released before you decide.

I got a slim PS2 theyre alot better than the old ones much more reliable. I wouldnt put any console on a rug cause that would block the fan but Ive left myne on for days and everything was cool.

I don't think you people with the short lifespan PS2's are treating them properly, I've had mine since the Euro release (somewhat) and it runs as smooth as when i got it.

^Thats why I never know if someones lying or not on the net.
It could be an Xbox fanboy or sum shit...

But my first PS2 lasted a while. It started acting bitchy in like June. I got it from a friend last summer, and he got it around the time Xbox came out, so it lasted a good 3-4 years.

I dunno, I think it's supposed to last at least 5 years, with somewhat good care.

yeah my original ps2 died out on me..and a bunch of my friends had the same problem- couldnt read discs, disc read errors, could only read the blue bottom cd's, some could only read the black bottom cds and so on..

i got the new slim one and it seems to be workin aiight so far, i only had it bout 2 months now so i cant say much bout its lifespan, but so far so good..

My PS2 and X-Box (I must have gotten the PS2 about 3 years ago and the X-Box about 4 years ago) and they both still run smoothly and are in top shape. I only watch movies on my X-Box cause I keep hearing about that thing with the PS2 burning out fi you play DVDs in it.

My best friend is planning to buy the slim PS2 though, so I can't tell you right now if they're better.

The slim PS2's casing is designed to heat up as the console is smaller and hence cant get a huge fan inside it. The "brains" if ya wanna call them that, are located away from the outer casing so dont heat up. I've left mine on for over a week b4 and i aint got no problems with it. Why you would put it on a rug i dunno tho..........hope this helps man

ROFLMAO!! :lmao: :lmao:

sorry i just found this to be funnyIt is, I can never remember the time period wich shit occured in. So when I fill out applications I have to guesstimate the months I worked during. I really never even look at the calender. A couple of weeks ago, I didn't even know what month we was in. I thought it was still like may and shit.
