The PS2 first came out in the year 2000 - now 14 years later you can still get one.
So onto the actual console. I managed to hook it up to my projector and receiver last night and it still holds up. Star Wars - Starfighter still looks great - it's no PS4, but the graphics have aged very gracefully and don't look as bad as I was expecting. The optical audio output is welcome for if I ever use this as a DVD player.
The slim design is built to last. It has the top loading drive like the near indestructible Nintendo GameCube and has plenty of fan ports to avoid over heating. I grew up with the PS2 and N64 - so I do miss that original more future looking PS2, but the slim being more future proof has me enjoying it.
Using a brand new PS2 has me shocked and awed ... in a good way. I'm very happy with my purchase and would recommend others pick one up while they still can! These stopped production in January of 2013 so I'd imagine supplies will dry up fairly soon.
That list I mentioned said Legend of Dragoon (a PS1 game) wasn't supposed to work on a Slim. I'd like to paste a post I put elsewhere to clear that up:
"I just got a Slim PS2 off Amazon. Put my bulky first model that still works in the closet as a backup. But here's the weird thing with Legend of Dragoon. It only works (on EITHER version of the PS2) on composite cable (yellow/red/white). Found this out cause I also switched to new PS2 component cables (the 5 cable cords, red/gree/blue for video) for a better picture on a newer type TV (I have a sony Bravia). The game was all frakked up on Component...... but it was fine on composite. WEird huh? I've never before seen a game that only works on one type of cable.
I mention this cause a review on the Slim console on Amazon gave a link to a list of ~20 games that wont' work on a PS2 Slim. This was one of them. More likely everyone who tried it was using component cable... so dont' toss your composite cables. If you switch to using PS2 component cables on newer tv's for a bettter picture you'll still need the composite one for this game"
Tips for new and old PS2 players:
When you get it hooked up to the internet make sure to install the latest update software, which can be done in the ps2 settings.
If you play ps1 games make sure to also tweak the settings, i believe they are called "upscale" and "smoothing"
(They make Spyro look so much better :D)
And if your looking for a HDMI converter that supposedly upscales graphics even more, DONT. They do not work. Games simply weren't made for that back then.
Also this is opinion based, but ive had 3 Ps2 consoles over the years, and i believe standing them vertically kills the laser that reads the discs quicker, it was made to lay flat so keep it that way!
Lastly treat it well, and enjoy some of the best games ever made. (:
