Sony PS2 review: Sony PS2

 

Sony PS2

Sleek; lots of good games; DVD movie playback.

Still waiting for hard drive peripheral; Xbox's graphic capabilites are superior; only two controller ports.

The elder statesman of next generation consoles, the PlayStation 2 has the luxury of a year's head start and many solid games.

There's no denying the power of the PlayStation 2 gaming console. Once again it's going to be one of the must-have Christmas items for the home this year.
