Congrat's on the PS2!
I am thinking about adding the PS2 to my "stable" of game machines.
It is one of the few consoles that I do not have.
Plenty of questions can be answered here, so don't hesitate to ask.
Good luck and enjoy your stay at PSX-scene.
I do find it odd that somebody in Italy is "tossing" such a nice machine into the trash.
That is normally something only us Americans would do (sorry my fellow Americans.........it is the truth though).
Just make sure about what the reason for throwing it out is.
You might spend more money to fix it than what it is actually worth (about $40.00 U.S.).
It could just be a bad system.
Again, congrats on the find, I hope it works out well for you.
I would much rather go to my grave not needing my gun, than go there wishing I had it.
