“After the wheel, the best invention is the PlayStation.”
Having a PlayStation is like having a teleporting channel where a new world of adventure and fantasy awaits in which you take part with great courage, power and honor.
You leave the reality behind to venture the fantasy as a legend living the past, present and future with the people you have never met. And only the gaming world has taught you that ‘Game Over’ is never a failure but a ‘Try Again’ with experience.
PlayStation (often abbreviated as PS) is a Japanese video game brand that consists of five home video game consoles, as well as a media center, an online service, a line of controllers, two handhelds and a phone, as well as multiple magazines.

The brand is produced by Sony Interactive Entertainment, a division of Sony, with the first console releasing as the PlayStation in Japan released in December 1994, and worldwide the following year.
The original console in the series was the first console of any type to ship over 100 million units, doing so in under a decade. Its successor, the PlayStation 2, was released in 2000.
The PlayStation 2 is the best-selling home console to date, having reached over 155 million units sold by the end of 2012. PS2 is the birthplace of online gaming, high definition graphics and an integrated DVD player.
Sony’s next console, the PlayStation 3, was released in 2006, selling over 87.4 million units by March 2017. Sony’s latest console, the PlayStation 4, was released in 2013, selling a million units within a day, becoming the fastest selling console in history. The next console in the series, the PlayStation 5, is expected to be released by the end of 2020.
Early PS2 units required an additional PlayStation 2 Network adapter and a broadband internet connection; slim models that were released later on in the PS2’s lifespan would have a network adapter built into the console.
Unlike services such as Xbox Live, all online multiplayer for PS2 was done through third-party servers that were the responsibility of the games/developers themselves; there were no official PlayStation servers. Later games that had online play would need to authorize through the Dynamic Network Authentication System (DNAS.)
Over time, most game servers have been shut down. However, computer programs such as XBSlink, SVDL and XLink Kai allow users to achieve online play for some PS2 games by using a network configuration that simulates a worldwide LAN.
- There are several games categorized under genres like role-playing, puzzles, strategy action and others that support multi-player gaming. Using the Network connector port, you can connect your PS2 to the Internet and gain access to the plethora of such games.
- To expand your battlefield to the breadth of the world, simply connect to PlayStation 2 Online. You can hone your skills as well as get competitive with players from several countries by initiating or joining multi-player games.
- The New Sony PS2 comes with a DUALSHOCK Analogue controller that has pressure-sensitive buttons of 255 sensitivity levels. No more straining your hands or fingers, thanks to this ergonomically-designed controller.
- It contributes in boosting one’s self confidence and will entice each to do better as reward points are still given individually to those players who show off throughout the game.
- Multiplayer gaming will promise you to practice a more exciting game experience since you are now dealing or fighting with other individual unlike in a typical one-player game which only put up a fight between you and the computer. Having an alive competitor or partner will entice you think of strategies and techniques to achieve your goal.
