The New PS2 - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006

The new PS2! What does it do? Heres the scoop.

Ok, you've got your shiny new PS2, you've plugged it into your TV and now you're ready to fire up a game. How's the game gonna look? What games can you get? What else can you do? Here's the 411 for you:

The Playstation 2 itself is pretty much a mini-computer designed to play games. It's a 128-bit system with a 300Mhz CPU for a heart. It's packing 38MB of RAM between the brain, graphics and sound. It cranks out polygons(the 3D graphics) at 66Million per second. What this all means is speed and lots of it.

The closest competitor is the Dreamcast weighing in at 200Mhz, 26MB RAM and 3 million polygons per second. Not quite the same level of power... Not even a PC can match the graphics of a PS2.

The systems both pack internet access, the Dreamcast has a built in modem while the PS2 is gonna get highspeed internet sometime down the road. The PS2 also has USB, Firewire and a Hard Drive slot. These are gonna let you plug in everything from digital camera's to keyboards.


In case you've been under a rock for the last year you should know that the PS2 also plays DVD's. You can pick it up, take it home and fire up your coolest movies when you aren't playing the games.


What about the Gamecube and Xbox? They're both looking like they're going to be stronger than the PS2. The PS2 has 'em beat with the DVD but a year from now they're gonna have faster hardware and snazzier graphics. Feel like waiting a year? I didn't think so.
