PS2= Crapped out

Post by Morbid » Tue Sep 11, 2007 12:30 pm

I tried to play some Rocks the 80s today and whenever I put it in, it would load, the "Play Station 2" screen came up, but then after it would go black, it went right back to the "home" screen. I looked at my disc, and it was in perfect condition, I tried another game, same thing. Looks like it's time to get a new PS2... or just forget PS2 and buy 360 and get SD vs Raw 2007 for that :machine:

I know, it's tempting, especially since online play is free on it... :machine:

PS3 + Warhawk = :machine::metal::machine::metal::headshot::cool: :):):)

360 has Halo 3, but I know everyone and their mom are going to be playing it; not to mention a bunch of potty-mouthed 12 year olds thinking they're big shit.

I'm playing my PS3 more than my 360 lately.


Yet.......I did dig out my Saturn for some old school goodness (granted some of the games were shit)

You only need to have the PS2 cleaned. 90% of the time, that's all it is -especially if there is carpet, dust, smoke or other in the same area as the console. I've rescued several decks from become landfill.

The 2K games have always devastated Madden. since the Dreamcast, I think?

Perfect Dark for the N64 still kicks the shit out of ALL the Halos, and any other FPS, and Xbox sucks ass.

There's my vote. PS3.

You just haven't played the right Xbox games. Play Bioshock and let me know if you change your mind or not.

There are some pretty awesome Xbox games, the Tiger Woods series is only playable on the Xbox i think. And Ninja Gaiden was the shit. They've always been geared more toward the online stuff, and I've never been into it. The Playstation's always had a far more versatile line up, and more games in general. And the best game in 10 years (God of War), isn't on Xbox.
And the controller setup just isn't as good as the playstation or the gamecube.

Xboxes were always badass if you modded 'em.
Fuck Earth.

Uhhhhh, isn't Bioshock supposed to be coming out for PS3 as well. It was my understanding that they were in the process of porting it over.... also, don't buy an Xbox 360 unless your willing to deal with the hardware issues (the 33% failure rate is why they extended the warranty to 3 yrs) or non compatibility with the A LOT of original Xbox games (Ok, 300 games are backwards compatible vs almost 100% backwards compatibility with both PS1 & 2 games). Another factor is the hard drive upgrade issue. The most you can upgrade to is a 120 gig proprietary drive that MS makes, whereas you can use ANY 2'5 5400 rpm drive (laptop drive) to replace the drive in the PS3, and the installation is easy as hell. I'm off to Fry's this weekend to get a 180 gig drive this weekend for the PS3.

P.S. - Get the 60 gig version of the PS3, not the 80 gig as it does not support backwards compatibility since they removed the "emotion chip" which enabled it (That's what I was told at Target, so the dude could of been wrong). You can still get them on ebay....also look into refurbished units on ebay as well....I got my refurbished 60 gig PS3 for $385 on ebay and it works great.

You are correct. With the 80 gig version they are using an emulator. Not sure what the big difference is for gaming though.

Oh fuck dude, you need to make that a priority. Totally takes it to the next level, and playing on Titan Mode is so hard it makes every battle a strategic conquest. You need to prioritize, son.


QUESTION:
I know you need the PSone memory cards to play the PSone games, but anybody know if you need the SONY brand card for the Slim PS2? I tried with a generic card and couldn't make it happen.
Fuck Earth.

Your right, get the PS3 it has no problems and a ton of must have games... Besides who doesn't want to play 6 year old games on a new system? Also all I see are rumors that Bioshock is coming to PS3 maybe in spring, so you might as well wait it will be here any minute.

Meanwhile the rest of the gaming world will be enjoying H3.

Good luck!

I made the big decision today... and it was























360. Basically it all depended on the amount I was willing to spend. So I went to Best Buy... picked it up... stared at it.... and left with it. I am impressed, but Halo 3 is what I will be waiting for :)

So far all I have is Oblivion, haven't gotten far, but it is such a beautiful game! Goddamn these 7th Gen. systems! I think i'm going to wait it out on Guitar Hero, I played that game out waaaaaaaay to much when GH2 came out on PS2, but I will for sure pick up Rock Band. Can't forget Assassin's Creed!

Dead rising will keep you busy too. You can build up your guy, then start a new game with keeping your updated stats. Not to mention the 5 million ways to kills zombies. The Mini-Chainsaw is sweet also puttin road cones on their headsd and watching them bump into things is also pretty funny.
