My PS2 died today

August 16, 2007

I’ve been having an issue with my PS2 where the disc would stop spinning during a game. I initially thought this had to do with the fact that I had the switches that tell it the disc cover is closed held down (so I can use a swap disc), and that this was starting to come loose so it was getting confused. I checked that all out, and it seemed to behave for a while, though I haven’t been playing much. Today, however, while playing A.C.E. 2 in anticipation of A.C.E. 3’s release… the optical drive in the PS2 just went stone dead. I can’t even get it to attempt to spin.

So, looks like I’m once again in the market for a PS2. Counting the one that got stolen, this will be my fourth. I don’t think I know anyone who is still on their first one. It’s absolutely ridiculous. I have to keep buying the damn things or lose access to all the games I have. Not to mention the PS2 exclusives like A.C.E. 2 and .hack//G.U. vol. 3 that I’m still waiting to play. Argh. I’m so glad there are no such games on the PS3 I want to play. I’m so sick of these pieces of junk.
