Default Unscientific PS2 Survey: All PS2 owners please open this

If you own/owned a PS2, please answer the following poll. These would be PS2s bought for your household, not buying them as a gift for a friend or someone who lives outside of your household.

Only 1 PS2, purchased in May of 2002. Not a single problem with it.

It will probably blow up tomorrow because of this post.

One, I sold it to my brother when Guitar Hero 2 came out and got a PS3.

i think ps2 will end up around 135-140mil when it's done, with maybe 90mil unique buyers (rest of sales are 2nd/3rd/4th/etc after 1st broke)

are you conducting this small audience poll in an attempt to prove your assertion about ps2 failure rates?

No matter how much you wish it, the PS one, PS2, and PS3 do not and will not have a failure rate as high as some other products in the same market.

The PS2 basically had a recall due to faulty lenses. My first first wouldn't read regular PS2 games, then it wouldn't read PS1 games, then DVD's, then DVD Games (they were silver instead of purple). It really sucked because a year later (which I never found out about) they would replace/fix your for free due to a class action law suit.

There is news about a class action lawsuit against M$ right now regarding the RROD. It's been on a lot of the big news stations.

Nicholas:

I purchased one PS2 which despite numerous abuses had no problems for about 6 years. Then it started to not read DVD's, or read games very slowly (had to wait on the opening screen for about 10 minutes, then it would be fine during entire gameplay experience.) I cleaned the laser lens and haven't had a problem since for probably my most used system in my life.

Same for me. Bought mine in 2002. Sent it in for a repair (Sony covered the cost of repair and postage, etc.) because of the lens issue in 2004 or 2005. Been fine since.

Went through 2. Didn't replace it again after the second one fried. Planning on getting a third one if there's ever a drought in 360 games. There's alot of great games I missed out on.
