Games, games, games

Dirt cheap. The last few games are awesome. Er, it's quite small?

No HD. Very last-gen. Online is rubbish

Sony Playstation 2 review

 

Yes, it's in the twilight of its years, but PS2 isn't quite ready to be put out to pasture yet - two of the best games of the past year are PS2 exclusives, something you can't say of the PS3...

No sane gamer is going to head out and buy this as their new console, but we'd advise 360 and Wii owners not to forget about Dre - there's some truly superb games still coming out for PS2

Sony Playstation 2 Slim review

 

An old favourite gets a slimline revamp, and with a gargantuan catalogue of stonking games, who are we to dismiss it?

The faithful old PS2 isn’t knocking on the door of the retirement home just yet and the new look has knocked years off, but it’s the consistently brilliant games that are really keeping the biggest selling console ever from slipping six feet under.

PSP Go! Explore review

 

While the TomTom iPhone app might make the planet's most lusted after mobile a full-on satnav, what if you want to turn your Sony PSP into a fully fledged PND? Well, that's where PSP Go! Explore comes in. An add-on for Sony's handheld, can it replace...

Not too pricey

Low res looks

A neat little add on for the PSP, but not one we'd recommend over a standard satnav

PlayStation 2

 

If you couldn't give a monkey's about high-definition this and next-gen that, and are just on the lookout for value for money, with the biggest and best range of software, and classics available at bargain-bin prices, Sony's stalwart PlayStation 2 is a...

Can 110 million people worldwide be wrong? In the case of Sony's relentlessly successful PlayStation 2, whose sales have surpassed this record-breaking figure, no. The question is, with the release of PlayStation 3 and other "next-generation" consoles,...

Sony PlayStation 2, Redesigned

 

Sony's newly redesigned PlayStation 2 is a study in simplicity. With almost the same capabilities of its older brother, the tiny unit (1.1 by 23 by 6 inches, HWD) is an impressive feat of miniaturization. The updated PS2 occupies 77 percent less space...

Slim unit, built-in network card/modem, fully compatible with original PlayStation 2

Xbox has better graphics ; new PS2 has only two controller ports versus four on GC and Xbox ; no hard drive, FireWire ; large external power supply

The slim, redesigned PlayStation 2 is the way to go if you're buying a new unit, but there is no real reason to upgrade from the original. The new PlayStation 2 is roughly one-fourth the size of the original and one-sixth the size of an Xboxand looks...

Sony PS2 review: Sony PS2

 

Sony PS2

Sleek; lots of good games; DVD movie playback.

Still waiting for hard drive peripheral; Xbox's graphic capabilites are superior; only two controller ports.

The elder statesman of next generation consoles, the PlayStation 2 has the luxury of a year's head start and many solid games.

Sony Playstation 2

 

Small, has a wealth of titles, plays DVDs, has Dolby Digital surround sound, plays original PSX games, supports online gaming

Requires optional adapter to support more than two controllers, games are pricey

You'll enjoy good performance and more games than are available for any other controllers, but you'll pay more for the titles.
