Jeff, those are all good picks- the only one I haven't played personally is Culdecept but I've heard nothing but good things about it.

Yup, I can personally vouch for Culdcept and Final Fantasy X. Primal (high production values) is a good enough of a title, and Jak and Daxter's not half bad. You done good with your pickins.

Thanks for the feedback. I thought I did ok, but wasn't sure, as I hadn't followed too much PS2 stuff, but was going off memory from what i'd read in forums.

Credit to the EB guy for suggesting Jak and Primal for $12 total! And he talked my out of getting Demon Stone. Not because it's bad or anything, but because it's coming out on xbox in a few weeks, at $29 (it's $49 for PS2)

Futureshop had a sale for the PStwo.  It was $20CDN off today for some reason.  I snapped one up immediately.

I need one of these for my bedroom.  Bad.  I don't play my PS2 as much since it is in the living room.  This thing is unbelievably tiny.

The only drawback I have found is that my wireless controller's plug in to the PS2 is actually larger than the PS2 so it hangs over the bottom, making it not sit flat.

Small price to pay.

The guy at EB warned me of that as I was buying it. But my Logi wireless is for my xbox.

I'm loving this thing so far. Sure is nice having all the new options for games, not the least of which is San Andreas!  :twisted:

Well, the past weekend I brought in my starting-to-get-funky PS2 at EB. My luck has it that they're out of PSTwo's. But I still gave them my PS2 because the $100 trade-in deal ends on the 31st. So now I'm without my PS2, and eagerly awaiting a new shipment to arrive at the local EB. Anyone got any idea of tha availability of those things?

Yeah, I'm debating on buying another one (a used one the old version) just so I can play GTA and get the HD Advance. I think I'll wait till the old version drops in price though...

Rage, I am exactly where you are at.  I have $150 in credit at GameRush and am merely waiting for them to get the new PS2s, but they never do.  So, I may just order one online and use that money to buy 3-4 games I want.  

I really want Ace Combat, Killzone, and MGS3.

Exactly Mike. You know you are going to spend the money anyways, why not just get the system now? I know you are not an RPG fan, but also make sure to look into Rachet and Clank, Devil May Cry, FFX, and bunches of other Greatest Hits games.

My EB hadn't gotten the PSTwo yet either. I'm thinking of ordering online too.

But the thing is, I paid $20 to reserve the PSTwo at the store. What happens to that $20 if I decide to get it somewhere else?

You get to use that money for any other game in the eb...you dont lose it smile

I just did the math, and I am going to be buying KOTOR2 and Vampire at the very least in the next 6 weeks, so thats 100 righ there. As soon as I can find a new PS2 anywhere I am gonig to buy it. Screw waiting around.

Yeah, thanks!  In all the excitement I accidentally reported your post to the mods.  I reloaded the page, went to hit the "X" to delete my post, and hit the "!" next to your instead.  And since you replied I couldn't remove it.  At least you didn't quote it smile

The comedy of errors continues!

They are out everywhere here.  You might check Best Buy.

As for your reserve downpayment, just ask them for it back and they will give it to you.

Check wal-mart first... they have a 90 day in-store return policy.

I called today, and they STILL don't have it yet, saying maybe next week.

Screw 'em, I'm going to order from Amazon. But the site is incredibly slow right now for some reason.

Argh, Amazon doesn't ship to P.O. Box addresses. This blows.
