I Wouldn't bother with a PS2, My Dreamcast gets played more than the PS2
Get a Gamecube or wait for them new smaller xBoxes to be released, or better yet.. boycott games consoles entirely and play games on your PC
now speedy i wouldnt tell anyone to not bother getting a ps2 they are very good systems, i prefer the xbox but that is just me.
i WAS gonna get a gamecube but the only reason i wanted one was for zelda but after seeing screenshots i said no and that sucks. ive loved zelda since the nes and now they are making it look like a kids game thats what sucks!
