So you decided to buy a Playstation 2 system but you aren't sure what else you need to buy to fully experience the
What games do you buy? Do you need extra controllers? How
many memory cards? Any other accessories? Follow these simple
directions below and you can answer all those questions and start
enjoying your system in no time.
– After choosing
the system, the biggest decision is what games will you buy to go along
with it. The Playstation 2 is pretty worthless without games, so you
need to tackle this question right away. The first way to choose games
is pick something related to one of your hobbies outside of gaming. Do
you play football, skateboarding, like cars, or fishing, like a
particular movie? There are games for all of these hobbies, movie tie in
games, and many more. The second option for choosing your games is
start with a list of the most popular games released on the Playstation
2. They are:
Grand Theft Auto Vice City
Final Fantasy X
Gran Turismo 3
Socom Navy seals
games aren't made for everyone, so be sure you check the ratings and
descriptions before buying one. The Playstation 2 has one of the
broadest game lists of any system so you are bound to find a game that
exactly fits your particular likes.
– The Playstation 2 console originally came with one controller out of the box but two controller slots. Buying a second controller
can be a great investment, especially if your friends play games too or
multiple people in the house play. The small investment will greatly
increase your enjoyment of the system because you can play with friends
at the same time. If you buy a multi-tap adaptor you can use four controllers at the same time. Unless you buy the
multi-tap adaptor there is no need to buy more than one controller.
is a great time to mention the difference between Sony brand
controllers and third party controllers. Sony controllers are more
reliable and comfortable while third party controllers are less
expensive in general and a little less reliable.
– In order to save your games on the Playstation 2 you will need at least one memory card. The Sony brand 8MB memory cards can be used to save quite a bit of data. Unless you are an avid sports
fan, you will probably only need one memory card. If you really love
your sports games, be sure to pick up a couple extras because they need
lots of space to store all the data needed to play an entire season.
- The Playstation 2 has lots of other accessories you could buy including the network adaptor,
steering wheels, and even a hard drive. The most useful of these is
the network adaptor which plugs into the back of the system and allows
you to connect to the internet for online games. Many of the most
recent games on the PS2 support online play so you will need this
(Quick side note: if you buy a "Slim PSTwo Sustem" you do not need to buy this adaptor because it is already built into
the system). The other accessories for the PS2 can be useful at times
but are not quite as important as the network adaptor.
