Sony's PlayStation 2, also called PS2, was originally released in early 2000 and was finally discontinued worldwide in 2013. It was immediately a best-selling console, building on the success of the original PlayStation and easily beating the competition, the Sega Dreamcast. Popular series on the PlayStation 2 included Need for Speed, Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon. Gamers who enjoy sports games made the Madden NFL series a mainstay during PS2's early years. Used PS2 games and consoles are still readily available.

Typical costs:

  • PlayStation 2 consoles are available used through online auctions sites, retro gaming stores and shops that sell used games. The consoles. Depending on what is bundled with it, typically costs $25 -$200. Consoles on the more-expensive end of the spectrum generally include games and additional accessories, while the less-expensive consoles typically include only the console itself.
  • PlayStation 2 game consoles generally sell for $40-$60 at used game stores such as GameStop[1] , although they can cost more when bundled with games and extra accessories.
  • PlayStation 2 consoles sold through online auction sites typically sell for $25-$50, depending on condition and the accessories or games included. The online auction sites often are sold "as is" or without any guarantee that the device works. Some PS2 consoles are available new in the box on online auction sites. Those models typically cost $150-$200. The less-expensive consoles typically include fewer accessories than the more-expensive consoles, which often include a selection of games.
  • PS2 consoles available through retro game stores such as DK Oldies[2] or JJGames.com[3] generally sell for $45-$70 and come with guarantees.
What should be included:
  • PlayStation 2 consoles should come with a power cord, a TV-hookup cord and at least one controller.
Additional costs:
  • Because the PS2 wais just discontinued in early 2013, some brick-and-mortar stores still sell new PS2 games, which typically cost less than $30. For example, Best Buy[4] still sells a selection of PlayStation 2 games for $5-$30.
  • PlayStation accessories are prices similarly to games. For example, PlayStation controllers typically cost $8-$15 and memory cars cost $2-$9. Other accessories, such as a guitar for playing Guitar Hero, may cost as much as $20. Games packages with accessories, such as Rock Band, which includes a guitar, a microphone and a drum set, can cost up to $50.
Discounts:
  • Used game stores often allow customers to trade in unwanted games for store credit on future purchases or cash. Typically, the store credit choice nets a higher return on trade-ins.
Shopping for a playstation 2:
  • PlayStation 2 consoles can also be found for sale through online classified ads, but the condition of the device is not always guaranteed.
