Exclamation Half price drop on PS2 in US

Effective immediately, the PS2 will cost $199 in the United States, down from $299, while the first-generation PSX will sell for $49, down from $99. Prices for accessories and extra controllers will also be reduced, Sony said in a statement.
Sony will also consider future price cuts on its game software, an executive said.

Since you have no job, you should just buy PSone and FF9 Its a better game anyway.

Yeah, PS1 games play on PS2. I was rocking FF9 when I still had my job. I'm pretty close to beating it. It's close for me. FF9 was really fun, but I'm almost 60 hours into X and I like it a lot. Very different games but both are fun.

I'm going to work on FF7 next and then head back to my 170+ NES collection and start working on the classics.

It's about time. Anyways, anyone ever play Fatal Frame for ps2? I heard that game is based on a true story and is pretty scary, but shrug.

if you guys like RPGs and dont mind older style graphics like SNES (Chrono Trigger) or other PSX rpgs, id suggest picking up the Arc the Lad collection. it is one of the best RPG series ever. and if you wnat a nice and LONG RPG with some very old school graphics but awesome gameplay...id suggest looking at Dragon Warrior 7. that game is a bare minimum of 80 hours. you can EASILY spend 100+.

Don't forget to mention that you must be okay with Toriyama's character design. His character designs are so ugly I can't stand it, hence I never got DQ7 even though it is supposed to be very good.

Talking I might get a second ps2.

I'm thinking a second one to chip for FFX international, and tekken 4.

I must say the story twist in FFX is too sweet. Also Auron Rocks

Has anyone purified the sphere grid in FFX. All my guys have all the abilities and 67000hp and 255 luck. They also have 255 for all the other normal atributes.

So who's gotten this many hours on one game.

BTW: I've spent 320 hours on this game. I wonder if there is any game (that is somewhat linear w/an ending) that people have spent more time on.

I just started ff9 but it's not quite as good as ffx.

IMHO, FFX wasnt that great. it has the best battle system of the series and thats it. the game is not, to me, memorable in any way. FF7, on the other hand, was the best I have played (from 7-10). 8 kinda sucked and 9 was OK.
