Get gaming with the best-selling console of all time: the PlayStation 2
Though the PlayStation 3 offers Blu-ray technology and high definition features, no gaming console is as well-loved as the PlayStation 2. It offers high definition gaming, DVD playback and online connectivity for an enhanced and truly interactive gaming experience. The console comes in several forms, both a regular model and a slim model that takes up less space in your entertainment center. Both models play all sorts of great PlayStation 2 games that have become instant classics, as well as a few games that keep the family together on game night. With a variety of accessory options and top-notch games, this console stands the test of time.
Perhaps the most well-known feature of the PlayStation 2 is its ability to do double duty. At a time when DVD players cost a pretty penny, the PS2 offered the best of both worlds; for one price you could play games and movies all on one device. In fact, this is such a popular feature that Sony made a separate DVD remote for the device, so that you don't have to worry about toggling through the menu screen with your controller. You can save both money and space with this two-in-one feature that gives you the clear pictures and crisp sound you would expect from any DVD player.
The console is easy to use, and the familiar DualShock 2 controllers will help you work your way through many games. The controllers feature a natural grip ergonomic design that helps you maximize your movement to master even the trickiest combinations. Plus, these controllers are equipped with a rumble feature that helps you feel like you are a part of the action. You can also opt for wireless controllers, so that you are not tied to the distance of the cord when you want to play from the comfort of your couch. In addition, the PlayStation network adapter quickly and easily connects you to online game play, where you can compete against experienced gamers from all over the world. Instead of trying to match a computer, you are truly immersed in real-time game play.
When it comes to games, the PlayStation 2 launched and continued several successful franchises that have counterparts on the newer PlayStation 3, as well as the PSP and the PlayStation Vita. Popular series like "Grand Theft Auto" and "Metal Gear Solid" found homes on the PlayStation 2, with enhanced features and storylines that propel the action. Sports games turn any season into game season, and you can get in on the action with the "Kingdom Hearts," a favorite of families and hardcore gamers alike.
