      The Playstation 2 DVD remote is for people who want to play DVD’s on your console. My feelings on the matter are that it’s just pointless, trying to play a DVD with out one a remote. Many will say “I will just use my controller and save me the money”, but I have tried that, that’s just what I said at first. The only cost about £10, save yourself the effort and get one. The PS2 joypad in very hard to use when playing DVD movies. One, it doesn’t reach very far and it’s obviously not infrared. Two, the joypad is hopelessly annoying to use, you often find yourself wanting to fast-forward/rewind and end up pressing the wrong button and loosing you place in the film, taking you ages to get you back there. While the DVD remote has dedicated Play, rewind, fast-forward etc. buttons with their function printed on them. It’s just so much less stressful when you’re lounged out on the sofa with a beer. So all you people who don’t need the added stress, and are also very lazy like me and intend to by a large amount of movies to lounge around an watch, then GET THE REMOTE!!!!

        A DVD is useful to have especially if you are lazy like me, and you can't be bothered to pick up your controller! It's much easier to use than a controller and some of them also control your TV and VCR. The one I have is a Mad Catz one and is probably the most expensive one, priced at £19.99. You can get cheaper ones for about £9.99 though, but they don't control your TV and VCR. All you need to do s plug in the infra red socket into the controller port and then you can play your DVD or CD's on your Playstation 2. Most controls have the standard buttons on a VCR remote, which include volume buttons, channel, stop play etc. There is also a "subtitle" button which when you press you can turn on or off the subtitles on your DVD, if available on that exact DVD. The DVD remotes do require batteries though but the one I got had standard AA batteries included. If you are going to watch a lot of DVD movies or play a lot of CD's on your PS2, buy a remote control. If not, if you are only going to play games on your PS2 it's pointless.
