Now that I have a PS3, I find my PS2 to be useless. I can already play PS2 and PS1 games on my PS3, so what's the point of having it anymore? (Same goes with my Gamecube, I guess :P) I'm thinking of selling it on Craigslist and make couple bucks for newer games for the PS3 and Wii. Is there anyone out there who's thinking I'm making a bad decision?

How do you play PS2 games on your PS3, it's not backward compatible anymore.

It's not. Well I just finished playing MGS3 on my PS3 a couple minutes ago :O
I had to make a memory card on my PS3 for PS2 and PS1 games to do it. Have you tried that?

EDIT: Then again, I did get my PS3 last year...

I thought it was just the 60 gb version that was backward compatible, could be wrong though.

Do you have a Slim. My little brother just got a Slim and is claiming he can play PS2 games as well, Ive got to see it to believe it. I did download the software free on PSN and made a seperate internal memory slot but it will not read PS2 format, it will PSone but Not 2.

I have an objection. You'll probably get, like, nothing for a PS2 nowadays. All the same, best of luck.

sell the PS2, if your PS3 can play PS2 games, no point on keeping it... you could save for games, or get a $250 Xbox 360 lol (that would include selling your GameCube maybe...)

I object! Even if you can play your PS2 games on the PS3, it is still a good idea to keep it. If something happens to your PS3, or even just to keep it as a "collectors item", it will be worth it later on.

The Game.

Is it after 9PM EST? You should probably ignore the above post.

Your opinion please... Is this a good price for what I'm considering on selling?

-Ps2 Slim (Black) Comes with all cords needed to plug and play
-2 working controllers
-2 memory cards (both 8MB one blue, one red)
-7 games
-Guitar Hero 2 (comes with 2 guitars)
-Nicktoons Unite
-Sonic Riders
-Over the Hedge
-Need for Speed Most Wanted?
-Lego Star Wars 2
-Flatout 2

I think it's a good price (considering I'm getting rid of some pretty lame games :D) What do you think?

I'm also considering selling 4 of my old wii games and 3 DS games:

-Call of Duty 3
-Metroid Prime 3
-My Sims
-Marvel Ultimate Alliance
Price: $20

I'll give you $100 and ship it to Colombia!

I guess it's a good price... at least for what I see here, it's a good price...

But the choice is yours, in 10-20 years it will be valuable, and you will be lucky to have it. The only way you are going to get paid well is if you sell it to someone in Japan, they still sell like crazy in Japan.

You never know. You might keep it, and fourty years later, you just might end up like the guy with the sixties GI Joe doll that's worth a pretty penny nowadays.

I have come to regret selling any console or game i've owned..... except my PS1 back in '99 so I could afford a Dreamcast. But since the PS2 has sold a gazillion units I think you should get what you can for it. If I didnt just get a used slim I would offer you $60 for what you listed, you can probably get a little more for all that though.

Hey man, I wish I had a PS2, much more a PS3 that's backward compatible, but do whatever you want to do. I would just keep it for the sake of someone else not taking care of it and it not being a waste. Plus, sometimes it's just cool to play the old stuff on the old stuff. Did you ever see the Green youtube video that said that consoles go to waste and it hurts our environment? I don't remember the name of the creator and the company but that's probably what will end up happening if you sell it...

Does anyone know how to post an item on craigslist? I figure I should just have my PS2 up for about a week and if nothing comes up, I'll keep it, but I don't know how to post something on craigslist.
