    I heard about this yesterday. Yes i’m sure many people still have a ps2, but it would be nice to be able to play them with that nice wireless controller; or even play those online games the ps2 had.

    my ps2 is in my sons room. It still works and its an OG one at that. I never really played many PS2 games on my 60 gig PS3 and don’t miss the BC at all since it YLOD and had to get a slim.

    BC was really important in 2006-2007, but by now, I have zero interest in playing old PS2 discs.

    I’d still like a few more PS2 remastered collection discs like Jak & Daxter, MGS, and GTA.

    Will this ever go into production, though? I’m sure there are a bunch of folks who would get it, but I don’t know if the demand would outweigh the cost.

    I would like to exchange links with your site http://www.ps3blog.net
    Is this possible?
