Difference in PS2's

[ Edited ]
28 replies 306 views Edited Feb 1, 2014

 Our original PS2 still works but player 2 control plug stopped working. Just picked up a used PS2 & it's telling me it can't read the disc. But the discs work in the old PS2. Any idea why it won't read them?

The used PS2 you bought was probably unable to read discs when it was traded in.

that bad sony is breaking the gaming industry

they make good games but they dont produce ps2s anymore

ps3s or ps4 isnt even backwards copatible

how are people supposed to play their ps2 games now?


buying a used ps2 is difficuly because just read the op

if ps3 and ps4 was backwards copatible tthe gaming industry would not be breaking

As Solid Steak said, the drive in your new (used) PS2 is more than likely broken.

Return it to the store / person you bought it from and ask for a refund

 

Or, you can try to repair it yourself. Search DIY videos on the net.

If I can find the means to play vinyl records anyone can find the means to play a game on a console discontinued only last year.

That is the reason why I never buy used hardware and this is the reason why backwards compatibility is important to me.
