Original model $29.99 http://www.gamestop....furbished/36743

Slim Model $39.99 http://www.gamestop....dp&cross=909071

Good deals. I was hoping to find one for 50 at Best Buy, but none of the nearby stores have any. And those old models are about as durable as they get.

I'm on my way to buy a slim right now.

It's funny how mine broke the same day they go on sale.

If you've never had a ps2 before, this and the buy 2 get 2 on ps2 games could keep you busy for a while.

I cant believe how many PS2 games you can buy for $2.99 or less. You can easily buy a fatty PS2 with 30 games for less than $100. That can make someone with a very low budget extremely happy (those making minimum wage).

They haven't. A few weeks ago the slim was 49.99 and the original 39.99, down from 59.99 and 49.99 respectively. This just happened today cause I went to check on the PS2 prices yesterday and they were 49.99 and 59.99

Well, maybe that person is only around 5 years old and missed out on the PS2 era. He must be new to video games.

If you're gonna buy your first one, I'd go with the old model. The slim is nicer aesthetically, but it's near impossible to break those old ones. I bought mines a few months after launch and sold it less than a year ago in perfect working condition. That's about 10 years

the slims with some simple tomfoolery can play imports, while the fats require a swap disk. In case it matters to anyone.

I got a quick question. Are component cables worth it for the PS2? When i had my old one it was on an old tube TV, but now I don't have one in the house, just LCDs or Plasmas. And I heard PS2's can look a bit bad on LCDs. So are component cables worth it?

They do improve the clarity in the picture but also bring out a bunch of jaggies. I would look around online and if they are around $5 then it would be worth it.

I bought my original fat 30001R PS2 back in jan 2002 (Happy 10th Birthday PS2) and I love it and still play it most everyday. I have collected a huge amount of games for it over the years and am currently playing through shadow of the collosus. I can't recommend this system highly enough and tons of great cheap games and this coming from someone with all the new and old consoles the PS2 is still the best system ever known to man or alien.

Funny, funny, funny.

I got a Gamecube early on last gen. My parents wouldn't buy another console and, since last gen came to a close when I was entering high school, I didn't have a job or any way to buy one for myself.

I've thought about buying a cheap used one since they went below 50 bucks but never actually do it because I already have a 90+game backlog.

Perhaps the store(s) around you didn't change the price until today. I know the price drop has been in effect since at least last week because that's when I checked both online and in store and managed to snag up a silver slim for $39.99.

Word to the wise though, if you're looking for a specific model number (i.e. for homebrew purposes, wanting the latest model number, etc.) and the GameStops around your area are anything like the one I went to, they don't have it on the outside of the box (nor the color for that matter). They didn't even have the serial number on the box, which according to the employee at the store I went to, they should have since a sticker is printed automatically by the system for them to affix to the box.

I recommend that if you want to see the system beforehand for model number/condition/color, if possible go in the morning when they open and have few if any customers.

So this is a permanent price drop and not a temporary sale? On the site, the higher prices appear with red lines through them, which made me wonder.

I still have my original phat PS2 from 2001. Still works like a champ and reads everything. Probably because I had a modchip since 2002 and moved to HDLoader a few years after that. I don't even own any real PS2 games anymore.

I gave my nephew my ps2 and xbox1 and always regreted it. I kept my games a memory card just incase for when I bought my ps3. I may have to go pick this up just so I can play ssx3 and vice city.!

Anyone know if these qualify for when they have b2g2 free sales? I know the sign says "Any PS2 product". Not that I need 4 PS2s, but it would be a good way to get a free one after reselling the others.
