Although we are currently preparing to welcome the PlayStation 5 generation, many people love the PlayStation 2. Even they do not want to upgrade or buy a new game console.
In 2020, a year when all gamers are excited about the next generation of consoles from Sony. Most gamers probably already have some money left to buy the new PlayStation 5 as soon as it launches. PlayStation has been through a long time of development through the console generation, and PS5 promises to be a machine that brings more perfection than the PS4.
However, even when the PS5 is about to debut, the console generation leaves the most impressive and most successful PlayStation 2 only, especially for those born in the 8x or early 9x. The PS2 has recorded a lot of good memories with them. To mention, it is a sky of happy memories that comes to mind.
I see around me, even though the whole world is focusing on PS4 or PS5, there are still many people who choose to buy the old PlayStation 2. Despite 20 years of experience, this 6th generation gaming console is still an excellent choice for gamers.
Low price for less gaming needs
Among all the so-called hobbyists or enthusiasts playing games, not everyone catches up with the current game market like console upgrades, screen upgrades, etc. Family, work, stable life. It seems that they have devoted all of their daily lives to making money, not following or following the current gaming industry trend. Therefore, to meet their not so many gaming needs, they chose an old PlayStation 2 instead of newer consoles.
Today, very cheap PS2s are the choice of most people in their 30s to 40s. At this age, they think that they need to buy an item that meets their needs instead of follows the trend. The PS2s have been associated with youth, so they are more used to using them than switching to PS3 or PS4. Besides, most people choose to buy PS2 because they only play PES or fighting games but rarely want to experience action, adventure, RPG, …
With PlayStation 2, you don’t need to worry about downloading games or buying games. Usually, the store will give you a free disc. You also do not need to pay too much attention to network speed, screen resolution, or 30 / 60fps,… If you want to play PES or play a fighting game with your friends and relatives for fun, PS2 is a pretty good choice. Just plug in and play.
The nostalgia of a glorious past
As I said, when one feels happiness from nostalgia, people are ready to buy that item regardless of whether it is trendy or not. I believe that any gamer aged 25 to over 30 has had a good time with the PS2. It could be the days of truancy, with the brothers gathered to play some PES matches, or the times of fleeing parents to go to the Bloody Starr, … No gamer can forget the beautiful memories in life.
Therefore, many gamers choose to buy PlayStation 2 as a way for them to keep good memories or as a hobby of collecting. There have been cases where many people are willing to spend a lot of money to own a rare PS2 version in this world. I think even those who already own a huge PC and PS4 or Xbox One still want more PlayStation 2 with game discs on their shelves.
Sometimes when we look back on those old gaming machines, we see how happy and happy our youth was. The fact that a lot of people buy PS2 is only occasionally. They want to relive one of the best memories of life.
PlayStation 2 – The console generation has never expired
PlayStation 2, the original system, was considered less impressive than the Dreamcast. However, thanks to the sharp heads at Sony, this machine quickly rose to number one. It is the first generation of the device to be backward compatible, featuring exciting games for families on the holidays. Perhaps that is why gamers always have good memories with this machine because those family games help them connect with their parents or friends when playing.
Now, I still remember feeling overwhelmed when I first admired 3D graphics or gaming hours with my friends. We have witnessed so much the development and decline of gaming consoles, but maybe PlayStation 2 is still alive in the gaming community.
Maybe then, many years later, PS2 will become a rare item that anyone wants to own, or perhaps it will completely disappear in this world. But I believe that the myth of this 6th generation console will never end. I feel fortunate to be born and have a lot of good memories with this console. My childhood was too full of it already.
