After 11 years of awesome service. Many games were played, many memories made...although it was not my favorite, it was like a rock that you can return to anytime when things got hairy. The games were good without bells and whistles, and 8 MB was all you needed to save your adventures. Sure it broke often, but more often then not, the fixes were easy and it played on.
My PlayStation 2 died this afternoon. The red screen of death (Please insert a Playstation 2 or Playstation disc), the cause? Faulty drive motor, the laser no longer moved. It feels as if the last part of my childhood is finally gone.
