  1. Congratulations on finding out! What games do you have for it that will play online though? There is scarcely a community anymore on there anyways. I have SOCOM II, Tony Hawk’s Underground 2, Hot Shots Golf Fore! and Ratchet and Clank: Up your Arsenal.

  2. Omg are you serious? I have had a PS2 since like 2002/2003 or something (don’t use anymore, I play on PS3) and I never knew that you could go online with it! I have the original box and everything lmao. but I never read the stuff on it.

    Ahhh I feel so stupid now lol

  3. lol, u Computer has an Ethernet port right, n u know what that is for? what did u think the 1 on the PS2 was for?.well that is unless u had a Fat PS2 then u would have needed the Ethernet Adapter/Expansion Bay.

    and its not “could” Sony is not MS, PS is not Xbox, Xbox live is done for but u can still go online with a PS2 (PS2s are still being sold and Xbox is not) but not with all the games anymore, there are still a few that are still supported, if u google for a list of PS2 games that still supports online u should find a list.

    oh, BTW, the DreamCast & GameCube had online as well & if i remember right so did the Sega Saturn (still works online) Sega Genesis, NES & SNES n if all those had online y wouldn’t the PS2 but i think PS1 skipped it, not 100% sure.

    P.S. i need to buy a NES for Duck Hunt, i keep putting it off 🙁

    Edit: what Sega did u have? it had an adapter, think it was a broadband adapter, i cant remember, but it came separate, kinda like the fat PS2 it came separate, if it was b4 the DreamCast, like the Saturn then it would be something called a NetLink, think that was dial-up.

    most things had adapters until Xbox & PS2 Slim then they all became built in, except for PCs obviously which have been built with the cards in for yrs, lol.

  4. Yepp, the old XBOX was a competitor for the PS2 and the XBOX had XBOX live online support back in the day, (Halo 2 anyone?); so of course the PS2 had online capabilities to and you could play online games as well. Though I never really used it for that, and I don’t think it was especially popular, not compared to Xbox Live anyway. 😛
