a thread for anyone to ask anything about games. consoles, controllers, etc.

a question i have is, did the playstation 2 finally die out? i still see some of the slim ps2 models being sold on store shelves, but it seems that game releases for the ps2 have either dwindled or died out completely?

anyone know for sure about this??

They're still making games for the PS2 (because of the failure of the PS3, I'm guessing) but I don't know if they're churning any PS2s themselves...

Well yes and no
they have ALOT of PS2 overstock of the
black models and the special edition
silvers or rather 'platnium'.

Everytime i sell one which is getting more and
more often b/c its now only $128.98,
two more take its place

As for the games
NHL 08 and NHL 2K8 were part of our
latest releases this past week

and the both cost $19.99
while the PS3 counterpart
sits on the shelf at $59.99

i hope that helped

Yeha it's kind of sad. Last I saw PS2 was beating PS3 in sales. Plus I know tehre are still planned PS2 releases, a year after the PS3 console release. *shakes head* Not bad games either.

I Spent the weekend learning to fly. IT was an ablsolute shit fight becuase you can't build up yourskill because access to airports is restricted to those who have a license. and even when i broke in my skill didn't go up.

then the first mission is in a complete piece of shit that you have to keep low, with a time limit and a fucklaod of trees!

Awsome game otherwise, can't wait for the next... but geeze.

It's supposed to be $99 soon too, I read. I can't wait for that, then I can pick up a slim model to keep with me when I'm away at school, instead of lugging my huge model (with the HDD that adds a few extra kg) back and forth sometimes. laugh.gif

its rather amusing that its still quite hard to locate a brand new wii console in a store. yet, the same store will still have a healthy stock of gamecube systems, but hardly any gamecube games. instead theres a ton of wii games. it makes no sense.

what further pisses me off is that the gamecube is still priced at $99.99. C'mon, Nintendo..its been 6 years now..lower that badboy down to $49.99.

It's easy if you fly to the east coast and just hug close to the water and then get to the drop point, go back up the coast, and then back to the airport. Also, in order to complete the game you don't actually have to complete Zero's AC missions, you only have to buy his shop. I think its a glitch in the game because later in the game Zero makes a reference to the final mission you do for him, even though I had't played that mission yet.

But there is any easy to complete Zero's AC missions. If you just stay still, you don't use fuel, just wait until one comes near you, kill it, park, wait till comes near you, kill it, etc, that way you never get too far from Zero's shop and hence don't need to worry about saving enough fuel to fly half way across the city.

am i the only one who thinks thats its pretty dumb that the new "halo 3 edition" of the xbox 360 is not being bundled together with the halo 3 game?

i can see some unaware parents buying their children this console, thinking that a game is packaged inside of it, as a christmas gift for their child,..then becoming upset to learn that theres no game included with it.

what the hell is up with that?

it used to be a standard, for pretty much every console to come packaged with a game...except when the same system has a console-only package as well.

the atari 2600 came bundled with combat

the nes had super mario bros..and also there was just the console sold as the "control deck"

super nes came with super mario world,.and it seems like a also recall a killer instinct console set too.

genesis had altered beast,.then later sonic

so on and so forth

every system should have the option to buy with or without a game...and special editions of consoles that are modeled after high profile games...should include that game as part of the package.

Actually, my SNES came with Donkey Kong Country. (Which I liked better anyway).

But yeah, that's pretty stupid about the 360.

The Halo 3 360 doesn't come with the game? I didn't know that -- that's probably the stupidest thing I've ever heard, especially for consoles now. I know of some gameboys with themes and they didn't come with games at first, but afterwards they did (like the golden GBA that came with Zelda, etc.).

I just wish we'd get the same special consoles like Japan does, like the Final Fantasy 3 DS (drool), and the pink slim PS3 (I would totally get one just for the "what the hell is that" factor. lol.)

Halo 3 isn't worth all the hype.

Don't get me wrong, it's a good game, but essentially its a hi-def Halo 2, and for any Halo fanboys reading, I'd like to make an announcement:

IT'S JUST ANOTHER FPS.

Admittedly, it's a damned fine one, but hasn't the XBOX360 got enough?

It's no trouble getting hold of one in the UK, is it still bad in the US?
