on the go, how do you pack your video game system and
accessories? If you’re like the majority of us you either pack
all of it in one big cardboard box or shove everything in a
backpack. Of course, this opens your system up to all kinds of
potential damage. Why risk your expensive gaming equipment when
you don’t have to? Luckily there’s a better alternative, and
that alternative is the Play-Pak. With the Play-Pak, you no
longer have to pack your expensive video game equipment the same
way you pack your socks.

thing I noticed about the Play-Pak (and really the only knock
against it) is that this thing is huge. Basically, on anyone
smaller than 6’ 0" it’s gonna feel more like a camping
backpack than a normal backpack since it also sits pretty high
up on your back. That in itself isn’t so bad, but when
combined with its square-ish shape the pack feels very
cumbersome when worn on your back. Luckily it also features a
shoulder strap, and that works just as it should and feels very
comfortable (thanks to extensive strap padding). If it feels bad
on your back (or makes you feel like a dwarf), the shoulder
strap provides a great alternative means of carrying the pack.
Of course each of these straps is fully adjustable as well, so
you’ll have no problem adjusting the pack to fit your size.
The size of
the unit is necessary to adequately hold all your PS2
accessories, and the trade-off of large size for functionality
is definitely worth it. Only when you start putting your stuff
inside the Play-Pak does the true brilliance of the unit start
to show. The PS2 itself sits in the middle of the Play-Pak,
and is held down by a very snug Velcro strap. Behind the PS2 is
an area to store your cabling, so you can keep that plugged into
the system during transportation. On each side of the unit is a
slot for a controller. Behind each controller slot is an
additional closed compartment for storage of whatever else you
might take along with you (such as a page of codes). On the
inside of the lid are twenty CD/DVD holders (double-sided for a
total capacity of forty disks), as well as holders for up to
four memory cards. While it would’ve been nice to have space
for a multi-tap or additional controllers, this would’ve
obviously added a lot of extra bulk to the unit that most people
wouldn’t take advantage of anyway. In other words, they made
sure that there’s plenty of space for the stuff that really
