I'm going to visit Singapore at the end of this month. So i'm planning to buy a gaming console from there. Since i don't have the budget for buying a PS3 ,should i go for a PS2 ? Also, will there be games releasing for PS2 in future or for only PS3 ? Is it worth buying a PS2 ? I have only one worry that if by the end of this year the game publishers discontinue to make games for PS2 and would release games only for PS3, Xbox 360, Wii etc. Is there any official news Published mentioning till which year there would be game releases for PS2 ?

dude a preowned PS2 is £17 here, a new controller is £20 a Sega is £20 Big Smile and there's plenty of games out

 

only thing would be depending on where you're from the Standards could be different, like if you don't live in singapore the standards might not be NTSC or Pal or whatever is where you are

That can only be answered with a question:  Do you like any PS2 games?

A lot of people argue about which system is best, based entirely on specs.  The right system for you is the one that plays the games you like.

What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?

There are tons of great games on PS2. I still break out tiger woods and red faction 2 when friends come over. Sure they are not the latest games, but tons of awesome games still. I would read up on the reigon codes though. I wouldn't expect tons of new games. Madden rehashs, movie games and the like, but for the most part you are most likely going to be stuck to the old titles.
