Old, black, reliable, and still works quite well after all these years.

Kinda like Shaq.

Pretty good alternative to any of the current-generation systems because there is a good chance that there is that one great game you haven't played yet for the PS2.
I'm not buying a PS3 until I'm done with the GTA games for my PS2.

1. The Sony Playstation 2. Released October 26, 2000 in the US, is a sixth generation gaming console. The PS2 reads CD/DVD media in the form of PS1 games, PS2 games, music CD's and Video DVD's among others. It is the direct competitor of Nintendo's Gamecube, and also Microsoft's Xbox. The system was home to many famous game franchises such as Devil May Cry, Jak & Daxter, Ratchet & Clank, Guitar Hero and Kingdom Hearts exclusively. Initially it was also the exclusive home for Final Fantasy, Dance Dance Revolution, and Grand Theft Auto until the release of the Xbox, and Square Enix gave Gamecube a Final Fantasy title. Sony's PS2 will be replaced by the next-gen PS3 in November of 2006.
"PS2 fanboys are silly, because they shun other systems with good games for their loyalty to Sony. Stupid noobs."
"There was a shortage of PS2's when it first came out, so it caused a Christmas rush for it."

A famous video game console created by Sony. Well-known for its many, many 3rd party games. This relatively free and unrestricted competition of publishers and developers accompanied by a lack of serious 1st party support has earned this system a reputation synonymous with capitalism.
Most of the games for the PS2 are not produced by Sony. And there are more well-reviewed 3rd party games than 1st party games.

Imagine a black box if you will, now imagine that box being the only thing you will ever need, it being the ultimate gaming system, now you have a PS2. Considered not as good as the Xbox because of its weaker specs the ps2 still had the larger choice of games, while the xbox had only halo and later halo2 and doom3 as games that recieved any sort of pblicity the ps2 continues to release hugely popular games.
MGS2 on PS2, you dont need other reason to go buy it do you?
