    Did You Know? - PlayStation 2



    Some great facts about my favorite console and nicely edited too (though weirdly they showed footage of Chrono Cross).

    I actually still have the slim model of the PS2, as there is no backwards compatibility on the PS4 it's the only thing I can play my old PS1 and PS2 racing games on, god knows how old it is but it's still going strong even today!

    Best console ever. Such a colourful and diverse lineup without micro transactions or bullshots. Just pure fun.

    The real-time rendered save files during start-up was pretty cool. I used to wonder why the white towers were shown.

    I got it in 2003, and I'd argue that I was more impressionable then. I still have all-time favourites from that generation.
