Sony Playstation 2
Advantages: great range of games, reliable
Disadvantages: wired controllers, needs memory cards, very chunky
The playstation 2 is quite outdated now, but I still have mine and some of the best games ever to be released were on this console.
So, the technical bits...
The Playstation 2 has a 128-bit emotion engine processor
It comes with the dual shock controller
It is also a dvd player
It has two USB ports
Has a built in infra red reciever
It can also play CD's
In my opinion the PS2 is still a great console, it is very reliable and hardly ever break down or go faulty. It was also built with the future in mind, doubling up as DVD player and housing USB ports to connect a range of sony accessories to it. The Playstation 2 is also backwards compatible so you can play all your playstation one games on it. Unfortunatly the same cannot be said for the PS3, while it plays PS1 games it is only the original 60gb model that can play Playstation 2 games. For this reason it is well worth keeping a Playstation 2 around for playing on those classic games, which is probably the best thing about the PS2. With classics such as Okami, Resident Evil, Silent Hill, Kingdom Heats, Ico and Shadow of the Colossus to name just a few, I cant imagine ever getting rid of my Playstation 2. This is a console that has stood the test of time and remains popular despite the release of the PS3.
Summary: great console which has stood the test of time
