PlayStation 2 Philippines

The PlayStation that set standards

The legend, the PlayStation 2. It took the gaming world by storm when it launched as part of the sixth generation of video games console, competing with the Microsoft Xbox and Nintendo GameCube. The PlayStation 2 was so successful that it put the Sega Dreamcast out of the market, making it the only game console in the market before the Xbox and GameCube were released.

The PlayStation 2 is also the world's best selling video game console system at over 155 million units sold worldwide. The console is also one of the world's longest console to ever remain in production for a total of 13 years since its launch in 2000. It was selling even while the PlayStation 3 was out!

But what makes the PlayStation 2 so successful? Read on.

Backwards Compatibility with PlayStation Games Philippines

If you upgraded from the original PlayStation to the PlayStation 2, chances were that you had a bunch of PlayStation games laying around; those games didn't go to waste. The PlayStation 2 had backwards compatibility with older PlayStation games, letting you play your older games on the newer hardware, resulting in better graphics and an existing library of games!

Great PlayStation 2 Games

What use is a great video games console if there are no great games to play on it, right? Fortunately for the PlayStation 2 and its lifespan, there were a large number of incredible games available, both exclusives and non-exclusives. But as always, the exclusive games were the ones that truly nailed down the success of the PlayStation 2, with great titles like Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Final Fantasy X and X-2, Gran Turismo, and also the ever famous Metal Gear Solid franchise from Konami.

PlayStation DualShock 2 Controller Philippines

Like the first PlayStation, the PlayStation 2 comes with the newer and updated DualShock 2 controller. As the PlayStation 2 ditched the classic grey of the first PlayStation and went with a black overall color, so did the DualShock 2 controller. Separately sold controllers were available in other colors and designs, such as satin silver, ceramic white, ocean blue, emerald green, and candy pink.

Among the improvements: DualShock 2 controllers were also lighter compared to the first DualShock controller. All of the buttons were also updated into pressure-sensitive buttons, save for the Start, Select, L3 ad R3 buttons.
