I feel like a lot of people really overlook how amazing the PS2 was and still is. Here are some of the amazing benefits of this system: -Backwards compatible: Newer consoles don't play older games until they are remade -DVD/CD player: Plays basic discs and you don't have to splurge for blue-ray -Largest selection of game titles -still releases newer game titles -tends to be more durable than newer consoles Granted, new-gen consoles have internet. But if internet gaming isn't your primary concern, then the PS2 is still very comparable to new-gen consoles. Maybe even superior since it and its games are much cheaper. Thoughts?
