Sorry... But I just don't ever see that coming. The PS2 has sort of lost support from Sony. Meaning, they will most likley not release an update for the system. The only thing I can suggest is tell you to save up for a PlayStation 3 System.
And, 480P is kind of poor quality now that standard TV's now are at least 720P.

I would say why not netflix. If they are still selling the console. Have you seen netflix. Not exactly high definition. I think sony wont do it because they want to push ps3. I like the idea. The ps2 slim 9000 is quite slim and would make for a small netflix streamer, or at least have sony offer there psn video on usb drive. Let ps2 get to where psp and ps3 are in terms of connecting and downloading demos and media. With disk loaded in ps2 drive they could even make it look like ps2 had a xmb! How cool! why not. I thought the new 9000 is once again locked down and secure. If not they should stop selling the ps2. Just my thought. or wishfull thinking. I had a ps3 got yellow light of death off subject. I like the product replacement warranty idea. So I am back with ps2. Come on sony you can do it. if you did it, you could keep selling ps2 for awhile longer I know you like that money flow of ps2!

So in your opinion. the streaming would not be technicaly feasible? I think i am aware of ps2 constraints but streaming through the ps2 nic card. Not possible? The whole thing could be temporary memory on usb drive encrypted. So the stream could be paused or rewound. I am just not knowledgeable on exactly netflix requirements. how much ram and such. The wii does not have just great specs? right?

thanks sweat johnson. I agree it is possible. thanks for reply. I have to remind my self console's main purpose is to game. that is what they are designed for. any thing else is icing on the cake. I think alot of people like my self just get ate up with the mentality of one machine to do it all. I mean the fridge with the tv never really caught on. and on top of it all sony kind of feeds the beast when they advertise it does everything ( iam referencing ps3 commericials here). peter

Netflix should have been put on the ps2 and ps3.By Sony putting Netflix Online Video Streaming on the ps2 requiring a Netflix Disc on a Double layer DVD,and full 480p support sounds fair seeing that its an older console.And all you would do is plug in you ethernet cable,pop in the disc,it would connect to your internet connection,load up the Netflix Main menu and search from there
I think it would a good Idea.

Well i mean it could work because the Playstation 2 is capable of a full 100 Mbps Broadband Connection,same as Wii.Now i compare to the Wii because they both use Last gen technology.Now the PS2 can run a Netflix DVD Dual Layered,load up the Netflix Main Menu,connect online via Ethernet for a minimum of $9.99 a month. Now the Wii is only if not as powerful as a XBOX,slightly more powerful,so If the Wii can support Netflix,then the Playstation 2 can support it.The Wii cant event support anything above 480p,the PS2 at least supports up to 1080i,so Netflix would be perfect.They could raise the price of the PS2 back up to $150.

I already own the ps2 I would be willing to pay 20 dollars for disk. what is the disk worth to you? xbox wants you to be gold. i wonder once the exclusive contract ms has with netfix runs out. playstations wil not nead disk?
