It's quite ugly, graphics are jagged in places

Sony Sony Sony... these guys have some history with Nintendo. Back in the day when the Super Nintendo was the dominant video game console, Nintendo thought "We know! Let's make a CD add-on drive for our amazing Super Nintendo!" The executives of Nintendo all agreed since their rival at the time...

“Prepare to become a hermit”

published 12/12/2003

it's got it all

The cost is ever rising

The tap was left dripping and the sink slowly filled until water began to splatter over the precipice. Onto the bathroom floor, then through the bathroom floor the drops kept coming. The carpet below was ruined, but more importantly so was my PSone. Pushing the button, nothing. Wiggling the plug...

Well look what we have here, the PS2 the brother of the excellent PSone. I remember being a kid and waking up early just to get my hands on the Mega Drive for the morning, remember that one? Well Sega were successful then and the Mega Drive was a must have accessory. Sony have pulled through and...

Santa was good to me this year - I must have been a very good girl indeed to come up this well in his list. On Christmas morning, there was a shiny new Playstation 2 sitting underneath the tree waiting for little me, and my inner child is very pleased indeed! At least today I have managed to tear...

“Gaming in a new reality”

published 20/10/2001

Great graphics, games, and gameplay

The price at the moment for games and memory cards

Playstation took the UK by storm. Everyone, who was anyone, had one in his or her house. It was an asset like a fridge or microwave. They had the best games and the greatest graphics out (when they first came out). Everyone knew the PSX sign even little kids. This console was a new light for...

solid game from the masters of sport-EA

its formula 1

PS2's first Formula One game comes roaring off the starting line but in EA Sport's mad dash to deliver the first F1 experience on PS2, they left a few things behind. F1 Champ Season 2k is a multi-platform game also available on the PlayStation and PC. You may think that because the PS2 is the...

Pricey ...300 bucks!

Before I go into the details of the system, one has to say that the Playstation 2 is a work of art. Not only does it produce beautiful, realistic graphics and an unbeatable gaming experience, but the Playstation 2 itself is small and compact, like the Sega Dreamcast. It has an excellent, sleek...

With the huge success of the original Playstation console, it was inevitable that Sony would capitalise on its success and produce a successor to take the gaming community into the next generation of consoles. The likes of Sega pulling out of the race, with their failed Dreamcast machine, and...

“SMOOTH SLIDER.”

Looks Great, Not Just A Games Console.

Expensive Games And Add Ons.

I have had the PS2 for about a month now, after humming and haring alot I finally decided to go for it. I got mine from a well known catologue company, (weekly payments - I'm always skint :) at the extortionist price of £300, but thats not all, they added INTEREST which brought the full balance...

great package 3 in 1

Living in a house that has always been Nintendo orientated, I was a bit shocked when my son announced that he now wanted to try play station. Not knowing much about it I agree to ‘scour’ the Internet to find the best deal! Unfortunately they were all about the same price - £199.99...
