New to Gaming? Start With the PS2

Gaming is growing in India, and more and more people are getting into it now. So one question that I get asked a lot is, “Should I buy an Xbox 360 or PS3?”. Strangely, the Wii never makes that shortlist, but what’s really surprising is that these people, most of who have never been into serious gaming, completely overlook the PS2. Why would you want a PS2 when there’s the PS3, right? Well, it’s not quite that simple. If you’ve never gamed before, then you don’t quite know whether it’s something that’s going to hold your interest for too long. Do you then want to sink over Rs 20,000 into something that you might not use? How about a console that instead shows you what video games are all about at only the fraction of the price of a PS3? If that sounds good to you, you need to get yourself a PS2, and I’m about to tell you why.
