makes the heart grow fonder."
I sure hope so! With all the server trouble weíve been having
lately that would mean a whole lot more love in this room! Anyway,
donít be afraid to ask
me any questions, Iíll always be ready
to answer them.
Q: Is one
8mb memory card going to be enough to save all my games to, or do
I need several cards?
most people one PS2 memory card is more than enough to last you,
as long as you delete files that are of no more use. But if you
are really serious about your gaming you might want to buy two.
Youíll be able to do all sorts of neat tricks with games like Gran
Turismo 3 and Way of the Samurai by
swapping files between cards and generally taking advantage of the
Q: I have
been told that I can buy PSone games and they work fine in the
PS2, if this is true thatís freaking awesome. I assume that
Playstation 3 will be compatible with PS 1 and 2 games then.
A: It is
freaking awesome isnít it? Although a hand full of older games
canít seem to run on the PS2, for the most part you can rest
assured that all your old favorites will still work on your new
console. You will also find an added bonus within the PS2ís
system bios that allows you to smooth over the graphics and
decrease load times of PSone games as well. You also guessed right
about the PS3 probably being backwards compatible, although little
else is known on Sonyís mystery machine.
Q: What is
the best VGA converter available at a reasonable cost? I want to
play the PS2 on my 19" monitor instead of my crappy TV.
you hunt around you can find some cool products that will allow
you to hook your game console to your PC monitor. This one by Innovation
Technologies may be a little expensive
compared to other converters, but it allows you to connect up to 4
different AV devices to the same monitor AND uses battery power to
give you the option of hooking your PSone (or even PS2) to your
laptopís screen for on the go gaming!
Q: What was
the first game you ever played that got you HOOKED?
A: There was
this little Star Wars, vector-based, arcade shooter in a pizza
place at a local mall that had me hooked like crack. I was five at
the time. Not only was it (at the time) the most realistic
recreation of the movie I had ever seen, but I was also hella good
at it, holding the number one spot to this very day.
