There's A New PlayStation 2 Bundle In Town

The 10th anniversary of the launch of the PlayStation 2 in North America is right around the corner, and the console still sells well enough to warrant a brand new Toy Story 3 bundle from Sony.

The $US99 Toy Story 3 PlayStation 2 bundle brings together the decade-old console with a copy of Disney Interactive's Toy Story 3 video game on October 31, two days before the smash hit movie hits DVD and Blu-ray. With the holidays coming, it's an excellent opportunity for Sony to grab a few more PS2 sales for parents not willing or able to spend the extra cash on one of today's fine video game consoles.

PlayStation 3 associate marketing manager Ami Sheth talks up the bundle today on the PlayStation Blog.

Nearly 10 years since it first launched, the PS2 continues to be a force in gaming and to date is in more than 146 million homes worldwide. At $US99, the PS2 provides great entertainment value for new gamers and families with its built-in DVD player and a deep library of more than 2,000 games.

I'm not going to argue with Ami. I still regularly purchase and enjoy PlayStation 2 titles, and there are plenty of games on the console any kid would be perfectly happy to play.

The PlayStation 2 was released in North America on October 26, 2000.

    Seriously... why???

    Unless you got a still working CRT TV, a PS2 is not fun to play on an LCD, or if you are okay with constant lag between tapping a button on your controller and seeing it happen on screen.

    I had to say goodbye to many fun games because my CRT broke and my PS3 can't play them :(.

    Do plasma TVs have the same issue? I never seen it for myself yet, but on my new LCD TV I felt my heart break apart watching the lag that never ended.

    just go for a little drive or a walk around the suburbs, you'll be sure to find a crt sitting on the nature strip. i can't go a day without seeing one or two. no point whining bout lag, when free solutions are sitting there just waiting to be picked up.
