    Hi peeps,

    A mate of mine is planning to pick up a PS2 before the weekend, and I was wondering what the going rate for them is these days?

    He'll want the console and probably GT3 & Vice City, and maybe a footie game. I was just wondering how much that lot should come to, and if there are any PS2 price cuts in the pipeline.

    Thanks in advance,

    Mr B

    i went to Game the other day and got a ps2, 2 dual shock control pads, an arcade stick, a dvd remote control, an 8mb memory stick, mortal kombat deadly alliance, mgs2 - sons of liberty, the getaway and capcom vs. snk all for £225. i was very very pleased with all that for the money. go into the shop and ask for special deals, coz they will normally give you them. if u buy online it will be more expensive though.

    I have seen S/H PS2's for £100 around so with a couple of games £140 ish. If he wants games etc better off trying for a deal on the high street.

    Why would anyone want to buy a PS2 when an x-box can be had for £40 less? I really can't understand it. What is better about the PS2 that makes it worth paying that premium for (certainly not graphics or on-line gaming for a start). Sorry if it sounds like I'm prejudiced but I can't understand what is so appealing about the PS2!

    Cheers
    Andy

    I can't see the reason for the PS2 price premium either and I certainly don't think that more people having one is a reason to buy anything.

    However, my missus like Tomb Raider so I'm in the market for a PS2. My Xbox has more of the sort of games that I like to play but she doesn't. So, basically it's down to the games you like and which console they are on. It's just a shame the PS2 isn't more realistically priced but I guess I'll source a good deal on a secon-hand one.

    Basically, they are both good machines but the Xbox is for men and the overpiced PS2 is for girls.:laugh:
