PlayStation 2? Replace or retire?

Sunday, August 18th, 2019

I am in a purge mood due to recent events. Layoffs are never fun.

I have an old PlayStation 2 which no longer works. Seems the CDrom no longer reads. A replacement runs on average about 70 dollars. I have a few games but are they really worth keeping to replace old unsupported gear?

Is hoarding a comfort thing? Am I trying to justify keeping it as a gamer?

It’s been acting up for awhile and I didn’t do anything about it.

Maybe it’s time to let it go.

Last check will be my kid. 😀

She is a gamer. Probably will say get rid of it and the games.

Change is a good thing.

Update: Ended up selling it. Gave a guy a good deal for it, the accessories and all the PS2 games. He said he had a PS2 and didn’t have any games. He really liked what he saw and even mentioned the Lord of the Rings games are what got him into gaming. Glad to see reuse rather then land fill.
