    Shift its not about whether I can afford it or not. I'm working 40 hours doing a very well paid internship. I'll be able to afford a PS3 and a 360 and many games for both along with wii by the end of the summer (Hell by the end of the month actually). I do however feel like spending that amount of money on games is not something I can bring myself to do. I spent most of my younger years playing downloaded computer games for free. I felt guilty paying $250 for a wii. I'm glad I did of course, but I only bought 2 games (besides wii sports). Then I chose to get gamecube games because they were cheaper. Seeing as I missed out on the entire lifespan of the PS2 (other than San Andreas which I played on my roomates PS2), I feel like buying a cheapy PS2 with cheap games is going to be far more fun than VC games and I won't feel as guilty about blowing money on gaming. It has to tell you something when the PS2 is selling far far better than the PS3.

    I was out of gaming since the N64 era until the Wii and now I'm somewhat interested again. But honestly not very much could sell me on buying a PS3 over a 360, unless the price came down to something comparable. PS3 is losing many exclusives. It's a far better decision to invest a little more money and just buy a PC instead. Sorry shift, you gotta realize that the PS3 is a little behind at this point.

    As for silver ps2s, best buy still has them listed online, just not available in stores. They go for less than $150 on ebay it seems like. But I'm thinking I might just wait till I get back home after the summer and borrow a friends who doesn't play his anymore. Feel free to call me cheap, I am just of the opinion that spending significant amounts of cash on gaming is not prudent.

If you buy it later when its cheaper you will have the original PS2 price- 130- plus the dropped PS3 price, all in all you will spend the same as if you just got the PS3 from the get go. Dont forget PS3 games are the same price as 360, so your really getting a better, longer game on a newer format for the price of a DVD game.
    LMFAO where to start

    1. PS3 makes PS2 games look much worse than they do on PS2
    2. I wouldn't pay an extra $500 for worse graphics
    3. I'll use TMNT as an example it came to PS2, 360 and Wii; need I say more
    4. No guitar hero for you
    5. 360 is believed to have better graphics
    5. just becaus it's on blu-ray dosn't make it longer or better just newer oh and worse
    6. Just leave

    The graphics of my ps2 games looked great on my ps3... So yea, I think it's well worth it...
    Guitar Hero... Nah... Don't like it.
    Blu-ray, makes the game either longer, or better graphics, better than the 360 probably, but doesn't make much difference since they're both great.
    I think GamerCon is a great addition to this forum, he knows a lot, just like Shift.

    1. Ask Cel, he has a PS3, he doesnt just talk nonesense, and says the PS3 makes PS2 games look better. Its not just me, ask anyone who updated their PS3. Playing a PS1/2 game in 1080p is really very cool.

    2. Define "worse".

    3. Yes, please do. Why is TMNT so important?

    4.Thats not bad considering how many xbox games dont work on the 360. So one game doesnt work and you start to cry? Cheer up buddy, im sure they will fix that. Here, have a tissue.

    5. If thats what you believe. Some people believe in the tooth fairy too, i guess that makes her real then.

    5(I guess, 5 comes after 5, you do believe in the tooth fairy) Once again, define "worse".

    6. Nah im good. Havent done anything wrong and only expressed my opinion, which unlike you isnt false statements that make no sense.

    I don't want rep. Rep me again and I'll have half a mind to rep each and every one of you.

    Loose Cannon is definitely right on track...Look in your newspaper classifieds. I deliver a paper called The Action Shopper, specifically for classifieds and I see used PS2s in there all the time with games, and they never rocket over $100. I actually was ready to buy a ps2 and DDR for the girlfriend until I found out it was coming for Wii
