View Full Version : Is it normal for my PS2 to not read the same disks?
I have Tekken Tag, the disk is clean as ever! After I went over to my friend's to play it and brought it back it wouldn't play, it would make this scratching noise that spins around like crazy, the disk is very clean nothing wrong with it! I would only be able to play it a few times throughout my playing...
My cousin brings of Tekken Tag, the disk is dirty and scratched up like mad, and guess what? IT WORKS :cry: I tried my clean as ever tekken tag on his machine and it works, :evil: what could be the cause of this :?:
Anyway I just thought someone could tell me about it, or something :roll:
-Watashi, the more emotions used, the more feeling you get :D
I believe we wont lose much if PS3 leaves the boards as Watashi is here to help! :lol:
Yeah, this happened to ME with Jack&Daxter, Tekken2, Tekken4, FF8(I had to buy a new copy :cry:!) and TwistedMETAL2. I baught new copys of all the games, lucky i got J&D free cuz i subscribed to a mag...PHEW! You know what though? All those games cost around 5$ each (preowned) so i didnt lose much. Plus i got Tekken2 to work again around 6 months later.
Who knows the solution, maybe you oughtta call technical support?
Yes it's likely to be a problem caused by your PS2 itself. I found my PS2 not being able to play any new games I purchased, so after a while I phoned tech support and then offered me a deal where I could get a "previously faulty, but now fixed PS2" for £70 which was seemed like a pretty good deal. When it arrived It worked fine and all my problems were solved.
I really hope Sony make thier PS3 much more stronger and reliable than the PS2, as in hopefully it won't break down at all if cared properly ...
but I haven't recieved any problems yet with my PS2? but remember YET is the key word :D
watashi did you try cleaning the laser in ur ps2?
i had a problem like that when my games didnt work at all but it was just that the laser had some dirt on it.
i have the version 1 of the ps2 and it seems pretty good but it wont play dvd+r
i also hope they well make the ps3 stonger as i have heard of lots of people's ps2 braking down :(
look in the post about the disk read error it might help i my self have never herd of most of that except for the scratching noise and spins like crazy and the solution in the disk read error fixed that but make sure you are carfull you dont pull the ribon out like i did which cause me to have to get a new ps2 cant say it wasnt worth it though

GamesIndustry.biz has spoken to a number of retailers, and the response is surprisingly relaxed.
Jonathon Cronin, manager of Computer Exchange (CeX), was sure there would be enough demand for the price to be irrelevant for at least the first six months.
"The launch frenzy will be there - this is the new PlayStation, not the new Xbox. Four million units globally before Christmas? I don't think you'll be able to buy one off the shelf."
It was recently revealed (http://www.ps3land.com/article-379.php) by SCE UK Managing Director, Ray Maguire, that the 60GB PlayStation 3 would retail for approximately £425. Analysts have had concerns that this price would effect the industry's growth, but also warned Sony of stiffer competition from Microsoft's Xbox 360.
Cronin did conceed, however, that consumers would need to see the differences between the Xbox 360 and PS3 to justify the difference in price.
Whilst Sony's PlayStation 3 is considered future-proof, an issue that is raised by most industry analysts is that consumers will not see the PS3 as an investment, but rather a very expensive console.
"When PS2 came out DVD was already understood by the consumer - but who knows what Blu-ray is? Sony needs to convey the value in the price; it's a longer term problem for them," said industry analyst Nick Parker of Parker Consulting.
It has been rumoured that Microsoft will retail the Xbox 360 and HD-DVD add-on together for less than the price of the PlayStation 3. This could prove damaging to Sony's campaign if the differences in features becomes even more of a blur, but the difference in price stays at a very clear £140.
