PS2 horror stories

Rolson69: I can't believe how people acted today to get a PS2. At my local Wal-Mart store 6 people got arrested when they got in a fist fight over the last 2 PS2's. At another store 2 people were sent to the hospital when they were injured. They were thrown to the floor in the rush to get to the electronics department at the Target store.

Salad: I work at target store early in the morning( 4am to 12:30 pm), i went to work this morning and there were about 3 to 400 people were outside waiting to get ps2, they were there from 10pm last night one the security told me. we did not have any horrible thing happened cause we only have 40 ps2 and we gave out ticket to the first 40 people and they can leave and come back to get their ps2, no one without the ticket can get a ps2 so there is no hope for the other 350 people . they left! we'll get a nother 50 ps2 next week and that's it for the season but we'll get plenty in after christmas, i know cause i'm the one who schedule that shipment. so any of you guy want ps2, don't fight over it, wait until after christmas, there will be plenty for everyones! it's the same thing happened to psx , nintendo 64 and dreamcast. they always ship a small amount then right after christmas, there are plenty coming! hold your horses!

Does anybody else have any other PS2 launch day horror stories??

PS2 horror stories

It's not worth killing yourself to get the PS2 NOW!!! It may even have bugs or be unstable (as with any new piece of technology) Remember when PS first came out it was expensive and the cdrom drive was uncalibrated causing skipping, overheating and other problems. JUST WAIT. i am planning on buying mines 3 to 4 months from now even a year, when the PS2 hardware will be all nearly perfect. the more you wait the better it is, more improvements are going to be made or the console will be perfected as it keeps coming out of sony. (they never say this so they wont get ppl who bought the system on day 1 pissed off)TRUST ME.

Only RETARDS fight for a video game console. Sony strategically made up that "lack of PS2s" scheme to make people go nuts for it.With the internet you don't need to go anywhere to get anything because you can always find it there.

I was about the 60th person inline at walmart. My friend Jake and I brought brownies and cookies with tons of exlax in them. We walked up and down the line of people and handed them out. Everyone got the shits and went running for the hills. We unded up 13th in line, and got our PS2. We didn't have to fight to get what we want. True story too.

Look everybody.. Sony did not intent on shipping small amount of PS2 because of a marketing scheme. The PS2 is cost more than 299.00 Sony is loseing money selling it. But will make up the diffrence with addon accessores (expensive) and Games!!! So intent was to have as many PS2 available to the public so that people will start spending cash for the games & accessories

PS2 horror stories

First off, I hope nobody believes all these freaks...Anyway, I don't really understand why there's all this fuss about the PS2. I've heard many people say that it's a better idea to go out and buy a Dreamcast($150 now) and some great 2nd generation games. I can't deny that I've been more impressed with the Dreamcast than the PS2. Anyone else feel this way?

PS2 horror stories

No PS2 is not the best available system. Dreamcast came months before but it didnt spring up half as quickly as PS1 did. The name of the game is software, the system doesn't have to be the best one around but if it has a lot of diverse rockin games it will spring up like crazy. That is what people will rely on. I myself am willing to wait a few months until January which is ussually what i end up having to do with most systems. It is not a big deal after all it is only a few months. For all you people who can't wait that long I suggest you grit your teeth because you will go through a LOT of stress trying to get there- I know i have been there, multiple times.

I bought a PS2 and It was broken in the box! (piss off) I spent 300.00 + and I happen to recieve a dud! Since there a shortage of PS2 I have to either get a full refund or wait sometime after X-Mas or maybe next year for a replacement....I'm thinking about getting a Dreamcast insteaad. Game one is great, so is the price. Pluse I heard multiplayer oneline is just about ready for it....If anybody has a recommendation on what I should do?Oh by the way this site is awsome!

PS2 horror stories

Hey all this bassing going here really sucks. Console or PC which is better? Come on people both are very good. Both offer diffrent kinds of games that excell in it area. That's why I have both. I have a PS2(kick ass!) and I also have a PC that rig for gaming (kick ass!).Now I know this can be expensive hobby. But Hardcore gamers like me will spend the money, becasue that what makes us gamers...

PS2 horror stories

While i must admit that i would've liked to been so lucky as to have the PS2. I'm somewhat glad that i didn't get it now. After reading Sony's statment as to why the shortage occured, i'd almost be affraid to own one. For those that don't know the offical statment is on [url removed] (basically they intended a new factory to be the one for mass producing the hardware using a new technique, but the factory messed things up, thus cutting production in half...) I don't know about you, but "production problems" might mean there's some bad bugs in the current hardware.Personally i'm going to wait for the x-box to hit the market before making a decsion. It might not have the hype of PS2, but since the dev. kits for it are much much cheaper and can be run on desktop Pc's it means that alot more people will be able to afford to make games for it... and that's something to keep an eye on.end of line

PS2 horror stories

I going to wait for the X-BOX!It has a powerfull hardware (Powerfull than PS2) and Big company backing it up!Games for it will be just like programing it for PC now. Unlike the PS2 where I heard it is difficult to program for. Remember Sega (black console system) it had the same problem from developers and it sank! Even thou at that time it was consider hardware was most powerful...

PS2 horror stories

PS2 is going to be really cool since it has many attachments.The ingame graphics are almost better than the cutscenes!I like PC's but when the consolo GAMECUBE comes out that's gonna be hype!

PS2 horror stories

I have a ps2........whats the big deal i went at 630 got a ticket came back at 1200 and was out by 100 and im at home right now playing some games....ill sell mine with games for 1000 if anybody wants it

PS2 horror stories

PS2 is completely a copy of dreamcast, dreamcast have everything a ps2 has, and its even gewtting a dvd!, so go and by a dreamcast wich kicks arse, or wait for the best ever console, the X-BOX!!!!

PS2 horror stories

THe ps2 can kill people because they want it so bad. What you will do if you want it so bad? kill,mob,pickpoket,or you can take some ps2 from old people. Thats why we must charge sony with no mercy!!!!!

PS2 horror stories

Hey Grechie! Get your info correct befofe you star posting message here.PS2 is leap beyond Dreamcast in overall power. There's site outhere showing spec on both system on the web.Do everybody a favor and do some research before opeing your mouth. Your only making yourself sound stupidEverybody here at LAN Pary was LOL when we read your post!Quake III & Diablo 2 rocks in LAN Party!

PS2 horror stories

justine...just the fact that you HAVE LANparties shows how big of a nerd you are.. lan parties.. damn.. i'm sure losta guys score there.. why dont you get out of your geekly little cyberword and go get some real honeys..

PS2 horror stories

Frankly I'm pissed that I'm not gonna be able to get my hands on a PS2 til next year, but for now I will settle your disputes. The PS2 and Dreamcast are pure equals. Everygame I've seen and read specs for are the same on both systems. Take UT (Unreal Tournament) for example. It runs at the same frame rate and all and they game looks identical on both platforms. The only difference is that UT on the DC is online capable. For the PS2 it's Networkable by that firebox or whatever they're calling it. Anyway this X-Box is not going to be the ultimate gaming machine. So far it's specs aren't lookin too good and the screens that have been shown suck. Now for the gamecube, well I have to say right now it's lookin pretty F--kin awesome! But i'm not a one-sided kinda guy so don't get me wrong. It doesn't really matter because at one time I will have the all.~Shin-Chan

PS2 horror stories

Okay First off The DC is surperior to the PS2 in almost everyway. Read Daily Radar and IGN they got their heads on straight. They compared games on the DC to the PS2's launch games. and guess what DC won. So all those people who dropped a $1000 on ebay get your money back cause the DC is the best System made. And by the way You blind about the X-box its screens rule compared to ANY ANY console out there. You need Glasses badly.

PS2 horror stories

Here we go, for all you people out there who think the dreamcast rules, suck it because IT DOESN'T!!!! IT IS A CRAP UNDER POWERED PIECE OF JUNK THAT IS GOING NO WHERE. IT DOESN'T EVEN HAVE A DECENT HARD DRIVE UNLIKE THE PS2 AND X-BOX WHICH WHEN THEY COME OUT WILL HAVE AN OPTIONAL 8Gb FOR THE PS2 AND THE ALMIGHT X-BOX WILL HAVE AN 18Gb ONE AS STANDARD!!! THE X-BOX WILL KICK ASS WHEN IT COMES OUT BECAUSE OF ITS IMMENSE POWER WITH GAMES SUCH AS HALO ([url removed] AND SO WILL THE PS2 BECAUSE OF ALL ITS SUPPORT FROM THE BIG GAMES MANUFACTERERS. BUT NINTENDO WILL GO THE SAME WAY WITH THE GAME CUBE AS THE DID WITH THE N64 ROCK BOTTOM. IT'LL BE CRAP. AND ANYWAY DID ANYONE EVEN KNOW THAT LINUX ARE BRINGING A CONSOLE OUT NEXT YEAR TO CONTEND WITH THE X-BOX?????

PS2 horror stories

You Dont know Jack - yeah thats about right for you silly name - Linux is a small company in Switzerland and only have around 100 people working for them and they have no experience in gaminng what so ever so shut it you ass

PS2 horror stories

Dreamcast rules man, ps2 SUCKS big time , endless sequels being churned out, performance is obviously greater than dreamcasts as it is being released a year later. the dreamcast is cheap, HALF ps2's price, powerful (look at the likes of shen mue), easy to program for (unlike ps2 which is a developers nightmare) as for x-box, powerful but looks to be drowned in endless sequels, gamecube looks great, nintendo are renowned for coming up with great original games (except for this endless pokemon shite!)

PS2 horror stories

Okay, How many times does someone have to say this before anyone realizes it. The best game system there ever will be will be what I am on now and what your using to read this post, which is the computer. Geez people why dish out lots of money for DC or PS2 or X-BOX or any console like that. If you don't think your computer is up to par for video games then hell just spend the money you would for a console and then upgrade your pc. I don't know about you guys but arguing over consoles is stupid to me.

PS2 horror stories

All this talk and bassing about which console is better. I say stick to what you got, who care what the other person has! I like to go back in time and play with my Atari 2600. Yea I still have one, and it still runs. Missle Command, Space Invader, Asteroids just to name a few are a clasic....

PS2 horror stories

I still don't understand why some people are waging this X is better than Y crap. I guess it's a kind of cheering for your team thing. But it get's really pathetic when individuals start using terms like "it's more powerfull".I'm not saying system specs aren't important, but they don't dictate the quality of the games or the overall sucsess of a system. Just look at the gameboy. Of all the handheld units i can think of it has the lowest specs, yet it's still alive today.What i find most surprising are people that are already saying PS2 sucks. hehe. wow, it's been out for what 48 hours and you can predict the future of the system?! damn, you should get a job on the psycic friends network or something.hehe. But seriously it's entirely too early to determin the future of the playing field. It can't be disputedd that PS2 is extreemly popular, too bad most of the market wont be able to get one till 2001-2002. Which means many Mommies and Dadies ( the driving force of the market for consoles ) will have to find a substitute for little johny gammer. Most likely that will be a dreamcast. Love it or hate it, that's how most people's cards will fall this Xmas. and it's a good bet that many of those parents are not going to buy little johny both a Dreamcast+Games & a PS2 + games once it's readily available. Not only that but other big players Micrsoft & Nintendo might have consoles on the market by that time...I think the biggest bonus goes to X-box since with only minor tailoring a typical PC game can be ported over to it's platform. That means for an extreemly small amount of effort, and price companies with huge PC titles can make some extra cash. I wouldn't be surprised if every major PC title between 2000 and X-box's release would be available at it's debut. The biggest problems i see for it will be it's console nature. PC games demand faster and faster machines, and without the ability to upgrade, it will be left in a matter years to playing
