are they worth saving? Or should I just toss it?

Does it work?

*shrug* I am shrugging

There's a heck of a lot of decent games for the PS2 (unlike the PS3). If it works, I'd keep it.

it powers up.

I have no joysticks, no tv interface and no games for it, so I can't check it further.

It probably works then. PS2's are pretty stable machines.

They make a few Star Trek games for it. ;) I don't have one myself, though, so I don't know how good those games are.

I just found the cords and controllers for it, I don't have a TV to try it with but I will take it home and check it with a movie. I don't own any PS2 games.

I guess the guy had upgraded his controllers and interface because the ones I found are the old type (corded) but in good shape. He gamed a lot on-line so he probably had upgraded his machine too... *shrug* or killed this one lol

Oh my, you shameful user you! lol Now we know the plus of having a grandkid. :)

took it home and set it up, it will play a DVD, so maybe I will have to find a game for it, I think it works.

Yes she does quite a few.

Look for a local GameStop. They specialize in used products, and depending on the store, a lot of GameStops are clearing out PS2 games at insanely low prices.

it has the network interface on it already, but no hd. does it have to have a proprietary hd or will one of these I have at the house do.

If so can a person put it in the house network and put movies on that hd, then watch them on the PS2?

What exactly is a 40 gig hd for on a game console if you can't put something on it and use it later? that would be a heck of a lot of memory cards. :p

Cool, if it works, I'd keep it. I owe one, but It doesn't need a HD
