Sony PlayStation 2

The Sony Playstation 2 was released in the year 2000 as part of the 6th generations of games consoles.
The Playstation 2 (PS2) offered full backwards compatibility with the original Playstation’s lineup of games as well as its Dualshock controller. The PS2 is the most successful home console to date having sold over 155 million units worldwide.

In 2004, Sony revealed a newer, slimmer PS2 to coincide with the launch of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. it was smaller, thinner, and quieter than the original version.

The PlayStation 2’s DualShock 2 controller is largely identical to the PlayStation’s DualShock, however, it includes analog pressure sensitivity replacing the digital buttons of the original. Like its predecessor, the DualShock 2 controller has force feedback, or “vibration” functionality. It is lighter and includes two more levels of vibration.

I have the metallic silver and the matt black versions of the slimline PS2. I think the slimline is an improvement over the original in every way. It looks sleek and modern and it has been vastly reduced in size from the first iteration. I originally purchased the slim PS2 very close to release, primarily for 1 game and that game was Resident Evil 4, which I purchased on release day and took a few well-earned days off Uni to play it. Despite this console having stayed with me for 15 years right now, it has remained reliable and is a usable and quiet today, as it always was. The controller is in my eyes, Sony’s best and while it could be argued that improvements have been made in the Dualshock controllers that have come after, I think they perfected the controller design here.

I have a memory card I use with my PS2 which has the Free Mcboot exploit loaded onto it.  Free McBoot allows the use of homebrew on unmodded systems.
