Great! I don’t think the PS2 should ever die! The Wii isn’t even up to par with it. (Games and graphically)

Wow, that is really cheap. This is the only console from the last generation to still be selling, and with good reason!

Ok now i’m going to be straight here if this had come out about well, I don’t a while ago and I mean ages before the PS3 was even thought of I would have bought this but, Sony come on guys nobody has or wants to go out and buy a brand new PS2 when they get alot more bang for their buck with the PS3 and I would have thought by now that you guys would know that the PS2 system is dead none is going to go out and buy it (unless your a collecter) and there is really only one game series I have been waiting to come out on the PSN Store which is Kingdom Hearts (1 – Chain of Memorises) but , I have to give you guys kudos on how you brought the GOW series to PSN and maybe with this we will finally start to see some PS2 games on the PSN Store (My advice don’t keep us hanging)

With that said I see your point in running the PS2 untill it has nothing left to offer the public.

R.I.P PS2

This is the last hurrah for SCE really. No really, is nintendo still selling gamecube? NO is microsoft still selling the original Xbox? NO. both were discontinued when the Wii & 360 hit store shelves. New releases have predictably dwindled to nothing worth mentioning, rental stores ditched it years ago. Most retailers keep a bare minimum of stock on PS2 systems, accessories & games for one obvious reason, ITS NOT SELLING! Its long overdue that Sony dropped the ball bad in more than one way here. they could’ve developed a software emulation on PS3 that would’ve been debugged and out by now if they knew which way was up. And it could be sold on the PSN store and made more revenue than ps2 hardware is generating now.

At least the PS2 doesn’t break down all the time like the PS3 lol.

That’s a pretty nice bundle. I already have a Ceramic White and Satin Silver PS2 Slim, but I don’t think I need a third.

Any idea if this will come out in the UK at all, Ami?

I’ve been hunting for that model for over a year now and no look – please help, nobody stocks it in this country any more and I’m sure people would love a comeback!

Oh and Toy Story 3 is a great game on PS3. I love it.

@ 17 yeah that would be a lot better than this (only if its on the slim though)

This should REALLY come with a memory card.

Congratulations PS2 and all PlayStation users! (specially the ones who had the MAGNIFICENT PS2!) Now, a very cool present from Sony would be the backwards compatibility… Yay! Software emulation coming…!!! Right…?

While I’m certain that this bundle will sell a respectable amount, it’s clear that the people that read this blog are not its target audience.

@49, that’s understandable.

It’s cool you are still supporting the PS2, but it isn’t cool that the PS3 has no Backwards Compatibility on newer models, release the emulator on a firmware update already

The Ps2 system is still selling well and Sony has every right to keep on marketing it.

Wow 10 years went by quick!

I don’t know why u say the PS2 is for kids and families only, i’m 30 and i’m planning on buying the bundle for myself, I have a still functional fat PS2, a BC PS3 and why am I still buying this bundle? cause i have a lot of PS2 games I haven’t played like the SMT Persona, Nocturne and Digital Devil Saga and a lot other cool non kiddie or family games I haven’t even opened yet, so I want to have a replacement PS2 for when my old one dies on me!

It is great that Sony keeps all there video game consoles alive for 10+ years. I bought my PS2 in 2008 when they released the Lego Batman bundle and Im lovin it. In just two years I have purchased over 30 games for it. In my opinion the PS2 is the greatest video game console ever created. The PS2 has all kinds of games for everyone. They are the first to bring a motion capture devise to the video game world (eye toy). My favorite games on the PS2 are the arcade collections like Midway arcade treasures 2. For those of you that doest understand why Sony would put out a new PS2 bundle let me tell you why. Its to give people a chance to play a great system for a cheap price and you get a free game. an excellent value! I for one would rather pay $99 for a video game system then $300. I just don’t understand why so many people don’t appreciate why Sony keeps there video games systems alive for 10+ years. Sony keep the PS2 going and make some more first party games. Long live the PS2.

I have a 100+ PS2 gaming library, with a 40 game backlog – WHY would I even consider buying a PS3 – a machine that can’t play any of them?. . . I’ll buy this new bundle as a backup.

Good job Sony.

I’m actually going to get this one, I have been looking for a new PS2, I still have my fat one from 2000. It works well with DVDs but it doesn’t read those blue CDs as well as it used to. Maybe getting this one will let me play all my great PS2 games and will let me play some of those Blue disc games like Half-Life! I also like collecting PlayStation games and systems so this one is perfect since it marks a decade of PS2! Congratulations!
