wow this thread got hijacked..I'm gonna stay on topic, was anyone able to find anymore PS2s (new) today or is everything converted to the used Gamestop box now?



Yeah I used the link and was able to find a toy story 3 edition The seal was btroken but he said it was broken on all of them. He showed me another it was broke/ I was initially sideeyeing him but he said it was new.

I guess that is there was of saying it is officlallly used. I also picked up y's 1&2 premium new for 19.99

Ugh! Thanks ya'll! I think I will stick to Best Buy and eBay for used PS2 games! Even though, my first Best Buy purchase has 1 of the games as disc only! Minimum, it's supposed to have the original case. I will call them. eBay, however, has done me well. Some sellers have massive stores on there with cheap, complete games.


Best Buy actually buffs super scratched games. Could be good or bad depending on how you look at it.

Like this one?> http://www.ebay.com/...=item4cfdd3a22f


Unfortunately, no. I've seen that memory card quite a bit labeled as "official"; but it isn't. I'm fairly certain that is a MadCatz or something.

This is what the official white Sony card should look like:

Just saw this post. Cool deal if you can find a sealed PS2 console.

Question, why is everyone looking for the Singing Star white PS2 bundle?

Out of the 3 PS2 white, silver, black consoles, what is the best one to keep? (Rare,etc.)

Anyone can point out some good PS2 games?

Nice find on the bundle. Did you look at the console and compare the info. to the box? I dont understand why they would break the seal, but leave it in their box instand of putting it in their Gamestop crap box.

The white is the hardest one to come by, and it's easily the sexiest of the bunch ;) I think that's why most people are trying to find one.

Good PS2 games? Some people have already posted in this thread, but some series to keep an eye open for:

Gran Turismo
Final Fantasy
Kingdom Hearts
Persona
Suikoden
Metal Gear
Grand Theft Auto
Ico/SotC
Ratchet & Clank
Jak and Daxter
Star Ocean
Xeno-
etc, etc

Thanks. Someone gave me a silver PS2 years ago. (I still have my phat one and still running strong from day one) I did find a black slim at gamestop, but not sure if i want to keep it. (I had Gamestop credit to use and was thinking of keeping as a spare)
Should I hold on to it and later upload it on ebay? (Dont let ebay and not sure cost of shipping)

I never played Ratchet and Clank. The only ones i saw was commando and size matters. Are they any good and is it worth getting at Gamestop? Was thinking of getting it on amazon or best buy if they have it online.

I know this will be a bit off topic, but anyone xenogears? Is their a game like that on PS2?

Well I picked 1 up last night at a Gamestop at the Irvine Spectrum last night. It came with the Gamestop box but the system was brand spanking new and even the employee told me that he had converted it himself and that I got the last new one they had. To me not having the original box was not a deal breaker since it still is a new system as opposed to used. Considering the fact that my original launch PS2 began having the infamous "disc read error" I'm more than happy to have picked this slim version for less than a new ps3 game.

Here is a link to see what model you have.

http://www.ps2cover....el-Numbers.html

The toy story 3 bundle came out in 2010. So The Console should say SCPH-9000XX CB (CB means color black)

The reason why I asked was because some people say that they got it new at Gamestop which is YMMV. Gamestop probably did put the left over new slims in their Gamestop box, but difficult to tell. Its kind of like when they try to sell a new copy of a game as gutted or used, but its just no way to tell on a console unless the console has minor or major scratches, etc on it.
Still, a good price without dealing with shipping.

That would be because you linked a PS1 memory card.

I believe in store Gamestop has thrown out cases/manuals for games $4.99 and below.


One store near me still has some older games with cases, I think (or at least did for a while), but, overall, yes, it's true. I was in a Gamestop once when the manager was stripping all the old ps2 games and had a big pile of cases and booklets on the floor behind her headed to the trash. She said they got the go ahead to do it to clear up inventory room for new games.

After striking out at 12 stores near my home, today I remembered a store near my workplace that I somehow overlooked. I went in, and they had one last PS2, still in its original box with an unbroken seal. Oddly, the employee said their system still rang it up as new, but it was at the proper $39.99 price anyway. (He did say that actual used PS2s were $29.99 at their store.) Now I can finally get around to finishing Suikoden V and Odin Sphere!

I got the last one at my local store, it is a plain jane charcoal/black model but I'll take it. One of the employees said another employee purchased the last Toy Story 3 bundle as soon as they dropped. Thanks OP!

FYI: Best Buy may also be clearing out the slim PS2's as well now. Unfortunately they were still marked MSRP when I was in there just before Black Friday and now they're all gone.


I checked my BB tonight, they are down to four Toy Story 3 bundles but they are still at $99. Probably YMMV, yours could have been shipped elswhere, clearanced, stored in the back.

Is there any special reason people are looking for the white PS2 over the black PS2? I know the white comes with SingStar, but is there any difference between the two colors in terms of hardware?

I believe people are looking for it because it's a harder to find model and may be worth more later on should they get rid of it.

Another relative wanted one, had to drive out of the city today 25 miles out to folsom! The box was a little beat up but the cashier opened it up in front of me to show that everything was unused!

Time for fire up my PS2 with some Devil Saga games, I still haven't finished Persona 3 or 4 either...

Yeah make the drive if the store is close because I have gotten of lot of uninformed employees when I call. If the store is far away, you may want to call to explain how the remaining new stock has been converted to used, and you may get a helpful/informed employee (the system I found was still in the original box with the seal intact so he found it rather quickly)

yea that's what I did, ask for the "new converted to used PS2s!" If you ask for new PS2s straight up, they will say they have none in stock!

I have a couple close by and then a lot of stores within driving distance. Is there a specific SKU they use or just the general 'Used PS2' one?
