It's $50 which I think is a bit steep, however its still cool that they are selling retro hardware, also should show how big retro gaming is becoming.

Pretty cool. Great to see PS2 games in ads again too, emphasizing Retro popularity there.


The PS2 is not retro. GameStop and Wal-Mart still advertise it every week.

As I understand it games take so long to release in Australia that they're one generation behind.

We only just got the ps2 last year, I always thought it was a typo when you guys were talking about the ps3. What is this mystical future world you Americans live in? And are there flying cars there?

For that price, I'd say probably not. It's a clone console, so expect sound and video quality that's inferior to the real thing, along with possibly a lot of compatibility issues with various games.
