I bought a slimline PS2 a while ago from Tesco for the kids.

 

Am i right in assuming that it will not play "copy" games as i am waiting for some of my work colleagues to return from China with a bucket load which cost less than ??1 each.

 

Can someone let me know.

 

Thanks You.

not recommended to chip ps2 as it causes some kind of problem that burns the laser out quickly.

 

casino-youre right about the fault on the slimline model, they recalled a lot of stock but sony are still saying they will get supplies out to shops pre-christmas.

 

just for the record we got one from big w but they`ve none left again now

I take it you've used these?

 

6 quid per disc...not bad!

 

I buy then for my lad all the time. Latest releases on top quality Verbatim discs that don't burn your laser out. 10 % off and free recorded delivery if you spend over ??60 and they deliver next day.

 

If you buy copies on cheap discs. your laser will eventually burn out, but it only costs ??50 for a new laser ie less than the RRP of two games!

 

DISCLAIMER FOR HAPPY' S BENEFIT:

I ONLY BUY BACKUPS OF GAMES I ALREADY OWN OF COURSE. I MUST REMIND YOU ALL THAT IT IS ILLEGAL TO USE COPIES OF GAMES YOU DON'T ALREADY OWN THE ORIGINAL TO.

 

Not that anybody on here would condone software piracy!

We don't want Sony suing Happy like the Coventry chairman is suing Rivals, do we?

Missus is in panic mode now.

23 days to go.

Still no PS2.

 

Choices:

a) buy little girl something completely different

B) give her vouchers and tell her to wait until January when large department stores (that advertise and promise products they cannot deliver on) may or may not have them in stock

c) give her a clementine and a sock full of pick n' mix

I'll sell you one for ??200. Brand new, still in its box.

 

See, you could have bought one off me! They're going for silly money on eBay now. Good job I bought some in the summer, once I heard about the burn-out problems in the new slimline version.

 

Good old eBay, you can't knock it, can you Widnes?
