WTF, Sony?

Alright, here’s the thing: After having fun with a borrowed PS2, Rabidgames thought “hey, let’s buy one” – just to find out it is impossible to buy a PlayStation 2 cheap:

New: 100 pounds.
Used: 30-50 pounds.

Those prices are just naked PlayStation 2 consoles with ordinary cables and one controller, nothing special.
Yes, Rabidgames is shocked. And he will stay without a PS2 for now … even if all those precious games are now crying in their cases …

At least, it is pretty obvious now why the small PS2 tends to break down after 2 or 3 years. That way, Sony generates regular income on a console which is more than 10 years old. Apparently, that’s how capitalism works.

Rabidgames rants: Seriously, what the fuck is going on? Why is a console that is fucking ancient almost more expensive than its successor? Why would I want to spend that much money for an outdated machine? What’s wrong with you Sony?

  1. Welcome to the wonderful world of collectables. While the PS2 is ancient it is also just old enough to be a collectable. I wish I hadn’t given my PS2 to my brother-in-law and niece or I would have gladly shipped it to you, and included the save cardriges and the games I had. Back to the topic at hand; While the PS2 costs 100 bucks give or take used to purchase, if you sell one you only get maybe 30-40 bucks. That and have you sold any games lately? you spend 60 bucks on a game and a week later sell said game because it sucked or you beat it and it has no replay appeal you are only offered 10 bucks at most. For these reasons I rarely ever sell old games or systems. not worth the gas money it takes to get to the store.
