4.0 out of 5 stars Buy two and save
With Sony-brand memory cards running at $25 a pop, buying memory cards for the PS2 system can get expensive. This package deal, which features one red and one blue card (green and gray are also available), allows the buyer to save a reasonable amount of money. But why would you need two cards?

3.0 out of 5 stars 50/50
One of the memory cards in this package does not work. It worked once, but when we went to load the data a second time...nothing. The PS2 won't even recognize that there's a memory card in the slot. The other card works beautifully. It loads and saves data with no problems. The price is great for two memory cards and still ok for one. But, based on my experience, there's...

4.0 out of 5 stars Buy two and save, April 30, 2003
This review is from: Playstation 2 Memory Card 8MB 2PK Red/Blue (Video Game)
With Sony-brand memory cards running at $25 a pop, buying memory cards for the PS2 system can get expensive. This package deal, which features one red and one blue card (green and gray are also available), allows the buyer to save a reasonable amount of money. But why would you need two cards? If you have a lot of games, it is easy to fill up a card, and having an extra gives you extra space. Or, one could be reserved for saving online games, or for cheat codes (which isn't a bad idea, since codes can sometimes corrupt your saved games if put on the same card). This may be somewhat expensive up front, but you'll save money in the long run. And, as an added bonus: If you have two kids (or more), multiple colored cards will allow each one to have his/her own different card, so no one fights over them or overwrites the other's games.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sony Finally Listened. This is the result...., November 27, 2002

This review is from: Playstation 2 Memory Card 8MB 2PK Red/Blue (Video Game)
After thousands of reviews and E-mails complaining about the price of a Sony Memory Card, this little packaged was created. Included are two colored memory cards. They are made by Sony and include Magigate Technology. The only drawback is the fact that they are colored so if you like everything to match then you gotta buy the black ones. This is a great product and is a needed item if you are going to be buying a PS2. All games need a memory card to save your progress. Without one, then you will always start from the beginning of the game. I highley recomend this product as it is made by Sony and works just as well as the original.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must-Have for Every PS2 Owner, December 18, 2006
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Playstation 2 Memory Card 8MB 2PK Red/Blue (Video Game)
I still remember when the Sony PlayStation 2 first came out, with its 8mb memory cards. The game store owner was raving about them. "You'll never use one up!" he said. Now we have eight ... it really goes to show how every time new technology opens up, developers immediately find a way to fill it up.

First off, many games now take up massive amounts of save space. If you're playing a game like Final Fantasy, where you want to save every 1/2 hr to hour just in case you get yourself stuck and need to go back to build up your characters, you use up memory card space quickly. Believe me, I'd much rather spend a few extra dollars on memory card space, vs wasting weeks of frustrating time having to replay entire games to get past a difficult boss.

It's also critical, if you have more than one gamer in the family, to have separate memory cards. I can't tell you how many people email me at my gaming sites, wondering if they can "recover" lost save data because someone else accidentially overwrote or erased their save game. If it's a game you just started playing it's not so bad - but if you had been building your characters up over months, and had just about solved the entire epic game, it can be heart wrenching.

These memory cards work for all PS2 games. If you get yourself a PS3, then you definitely will want to also get the PS2 - PS3 memory adapter. This little unit lets you plug your PS2 card into it, then a USB connector plugs into the PS3 so that the save games all read right into your PS3. Now you can play all your PS2 games on your PS3 without having to start from scratch. Note that your PS3 does NOT natively let you "stick the PS2 memory card into it". There is no slot on the PS3 for the PS2 card.

Also, for games that you play for multiple weeks, I definitely recommend having a memory card backup of your current save games. Memory cards get lost, they get "borrowed" by accident, they do lose data occasionally if you step on them or drop them in the snow. Just like you back up your computer's hard drive occasionally, back up those important game save files. It only takes a few minutes and can save you months of replaying.

Well recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Have For A Playstation2 Owner, January 5, 2005
A Kid's Review
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Playstation 2 Memory Card 8MB 2PK Red/Blue (Video Game)
I am a frequent playstation2 player and this is a neccessity. I have been getting games since the PS2 came out, and I have over 50 videogames so I have a total of 5 memory cards and they are all full. If you play videogames you are going to need at least one, but it is much cheaper to buy this pack and they come in cool red and blue colors. Some videogames take up ALOT of space on the memory card such as the Jak series and Madden NFL Football series. I reccomend this product to ANY PS2 owner and I suggest buying two of these because in the long run you are going to need them. If you are going to buy someone a PS2 you need to buy them this and an extra controller because if you don't they will very dissapointed. You can't go wrong with this product and I do not reccomend buying ANY non-Sony produuct including memory cards.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good memory card but one should be enough..., December 28, 2003
This review is from: Playstation 2 Memory Card 8MB 2PK Red/Blue (Video Game)
If you're completely one of those HARDCORE gamers who spend more than 4 hours a day playing videogames, 2 memory cards should fit you nicely, considering the amount of games you could possible play in that time. However, if you're a easy gamer like me (no more than 2-3 hours a day) 1 should be enough. If you're that hardcore gamer and need that much space to fit all your gaming needs, this is surely going to save you money, as buying 2 memory cards separately cost approximately 50 dollars, about the cost of a brand new just-released game. These memory cards word pretty well so don't expect files that magically disappear or save files that become corrupted that lead you to start the game over again. A memory card is a must buy if you own a PS2 but whether you need 2 is your choice.

My self, my wife, and the the two boyz we have are all playing with the PS2. Each has his/her own game and savings. This is a must if you have more than one player using the game. Each has his memory card (stick) and has his/her own game levels saved on it. Never had any trouble with any of them, nor did it ever hang on me. I am truely satisfied with the product.

This review is from: Playstation 2 Memory Card 8MB 2PK Red/Blue (Video Game)
I've tried a number of different cheaper rippoffs that either had more memory or were priced less, but I always had a problem with them in one game or another. I've never had a problem with these, for the price (which isn't great) these are the probably the best buy. You'll want two if there's more than one of you playing on the PS2

If you need memory cards for your PS2 buy them here. Amazon had the best price ($10 more at Wal-Mart) and free shipping!
