When you are wanting to buy gifts for the kids or grandkids, especially PlayStation 2 video games, you need to choose the right video consoles. Most kids are hard on the consoles themselves. Most consoles are indestructible. My grandsons are hard on the consoles. They don't mean to be but in the excitement sometimes things get broke. On the Sony PlayStation 2 the console is of tough durable material. Even at the most exciting times, of that eventual kill or the exciting get away or even maybe the winning the race against your dad or granddad, the console is hard to break.
Some of us use it as a relaxation time, you know just to unwind. My problem is that that doesn't unwind me because these games just get me going again. Others use it to pacify the kids for a couple of hours so either mom or dad can get some much needed work done around the house.
Consoles have come along way since I first used them. That was a long time ago. Now day video game consoles can be used for much more than playing games. They now can be used to download music and even to store the music. You can download some of your favorite pictures. You know like your wife, kids and grandkids.
The Sony PlayStation 2 is regarded as one of the most successful consoles in the world. The PlayStation 2 is part of the sixth generation of video game consoles and is compatible with almost all the original PlayStation games. Unfortunately, games that were designed for the PlayStation 2 are not compatible with the new versions.
If the consoles do break, finding a repair guide or manual can be tricky. You can look in Google and check for reviews about fixing your console. Sony will fix your console but will be in the neighborhood of $100 or maybe more by the time you add your shipping to that. You will then have the wait time that it takes to ship, fix and ship back to you again. This can be anywhere between four to six weeks. Again look on Google to see if you can find a repair manual. The manuals will run you between twenty-five and fifty dollars. Check the reviews to make sure you are getting what you pay for and also from a reputable person.
