Playing imports.

The shoddiest video output of any console.

Other than that, amazing console.
Great system.

Not retro.

you're right, not retro

>Playing imports.
You can play imports with a modchip

>The shoddiest video output of any console.

Component cables +GSM Mode Selector (up to 1080p) But the console needs to be able to boot up homebrew apps.
If there's one thing I hate about my PS2, it's the interlacing and how only like 5% of the games out there has progressive scan. Fucking Xbox has progressive scan pretty much by standard.
Gross, who would want to?

This, people become reddit-tier pathetic when it comes to shit like this.
Flip top model in general
Inferior graphics to Xbox's
Exclusives less creative than the Dreamcast's
First party titles inferior to Gamecube's
Third worst controller in its generation, behind the DC and the Duke Xbox controller

Honestly, it's the worst console in its generation in terms of being a machine that plays games. What it did well was having such an expansive library that it's easy to overlook faults. That being said, I appreciate from the hardware side the fact that they did such a good job with the backwards compatibility in the front loading model.
segmented d-pad

>implying flip top model is worse than shoddy tray opening

Everything else you're spot on. Main reason I just can't go back to it is that 95% of the games are 480i only.
Bring on the mechanical problems, anything to avoid top loading anything.

I'm not trying to flame you, but curious. Why is top loading bad?
I live in a tiny box, and toploaders can be stacked if heat isn't a concern. They're also easier to fit into tight spaces, because you don't have to put your arm in and fiddle with things -- just pull it out the front. If the damn thing was more reliable, the NES front loader would be the poster child for my ideal shape - flat top, front loading, light on front, roughly boxy, heavy enough to stay put despite wire jiggling. Only complaints are that it's a big empty shell and the right-side composite outputs.
Not Retro
The flip top model is inferior to the front loader because it packs a lot more heat into a smaller area, its made out of cheaper and thinner plastic, and its missing hard drive and firewire features.

Problem with the front loader is how dusty it gets inside. Sony apparently didn't fully account for dust build up. The biggest reason the front loaders stop reading disks properly is because dust particles are physically obscuring the lens.

If you open a front loader up, and clean the lens with a Q-Tip (cotton bud, whatever) it should last about 5-10 years before needing another clean unless you live in a dusty hellhole.

My original PS2 died, still have a top loader that works. I will grant that the old PS2 got a LOT more use though, got it the year it launched and was my main squeeze for that generation whereas I got the slim just as that gen was dying down.

You're right about the dust buildup - pulled my ps2 slim out of storage a few months ago, couldn't figure out why it was getting so hot just idling at the menu. Opened it up and found the main fan completely clogged with my old dog's hair, RIP little buddy. Cleaned it out and it's fine now but I expect to have to do the same thing again in a year or two.
480/575//720p via Component cable. Best picture, better than any console without hdmi.
The Wii barely managed this years later.
Ya and there's less than 5 games worth a shit that supports progressive.

Meanwhile all the Wii games support 480p at least.

The kids who had a PS2 as their first console are really delusional about that fact.
does that trigger you?
Say that again without blushing in shame?

The video output was fine, PS2 could output 240p, 480i, 480p, 720p, and 1080i. Both fat and slim models could use an rf adapter, composite, s-video, component, and RGB via scart or VGA cable. And all these cables are not only interchangeable between the PS1/2/3, they're also compatible with all revisions within those three consoles, with the exception of PS1 not outputting component.

The PS1/2/3 are the gold standard of video game consoles, and of the three the PS2 is the best.
