    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
