Thinkin about getting a PS2............

Now that GTA:SA is out, I can't hold back any longer. It's really the only motivation I have to get a PS2. But I don't want to buy one for just one game. Are there any good games coming out in the near future for this system? I've played most of the old ones, so I won't be buying those. I want to know what games are going to be good on this system.

I'm mainly interested in FPS, RPGs in some cases, Action & Adventure, and sometimes fighters.

You should buy FFX if you are into RPGs. It's the best Final Fantasy game ever made.

Wise choice. I really think the PS2 still has the premiere collection of this gen.

Forthcoming (or recent):
Ace Combat 5
MGS 3
Gran Turismo 4
Rez reissue
Ratchet & Clank: UYA
Jak 3
Killzone
Alien Hominid
Kingdom Hearts 2
Full Metal Alchemist
Taiko Drum Master
The Bard's Tale
Shin Megami Tensei Nocturne
Sly 2
Katamari Damacy
...and MORE!

For RPGs try to find or get Breath of Fire: Dragon Quater, Disgaea, or SMT Nocturne. With each game you will get a unique experience, storylines that are not cliched, and actual replay value that are unlike all the cookie cutter FF games and their various clones.

One of the few times we agree.

There are a lot of shooters coming. I'm just not sure which of them will be represented on other systems, or what Chub even has.

Killzone
Goldeneye: Rogue Agent
Pariah
Call of Duty: Finest Hour
Darkwatch
Ghost Recon 2 (this is a completely different version than the Xbox is getting)
Cold Winter
Area 51
Project: Snowblind
Brothers in Arms

Also: Ratchet & Clank: UYA can allegedly be played entirely as a FPS.

GTA:SA is totally not a system buyer game. Find a friend that has it first and play it. I personally dont like it all that much. Getting ready to trade it in.

well, if you liked the previous GTA games, you will love GTA:SA.


I personally dont think any one game is worth buying a system though.

No. But they can be a strong motivator. And I dont think GTA:SA should be it. But to each his own.

You should try to get the new tiny ps2. I'm waiting for them to show up locally to replace my old PS2 and give it to my little sister. There are way to many games to recommend. Check out some reviews.

Maybe I'm crazy, but my PSTwo is having lots of problems. The video cut out playing a game today, it messed up my Twisted Metal Black save yesterday. Wonky shit. I'm thinking I'm going to call up Sony while I still have the 90 day warranty.

Just the size. It's got a built in network adaptor/modem, but doesn't support the hard drive. It's top loading too, which I think is cool.

But read my previous post.

I had a problem with mine to thought I think it was due to heat. I was playing GTA: SA and it started to rain really hard and did that shit where the screen get that dark foggy haze over it. Well it stopped raining but that dark foggy haze never went away. Then eventualy the dark haze turned into a green haze and made it so i could not see anything at night. Luckily all it took was movinbg my PStwo to a better ventilated area and letting it cool off for a day and it was back to normal. Really pissed me off for a while though.

I've heard alot of shit about the new PSTwos. DREs, overheating problems, won't read games at all......does this new one have a fan or is it like the old PSX? I'm wanting to trade in my PS2 for one, but mine works great and I don't wanna get one of the buggy ass PSTwos. Fuck, I don't play my current PS2.

Yes, it has a CPU fan. I believe they switched to an external power supply like the N64.



I decided not to get a new model right now since my current PS2 works fine and I've heard the PStwo has some compatibility problems with certain PS1 games such as Final Fantasy Anthology. I'll probably wait and get one down the road whenever the price drops to $99.
