    Default Q? For Those With New Slim PS2s!!

    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?

    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.
