Brother, can you spare a PS2?

As if my vacation couldn't get any worse, my Playstation2 also broke while up in NH and can't read the two games I actually play (but I found out it will read older games and DVDs). Since I only play two games (one religiously), I can't justify buying an Xbox 360 and then having to go out and buy those games again on a new platform, nor do I feel like waiting and buying a PS3. Frankly, I don't feel like spending $400+ on either one, either. And since I ALSO don't want to spend $130 on a new, soon-to-be-obsolete PS2, I think my only option is to find someone who has a PS2 they no longer use, probably because they bought an Xbox.

Anyone? Anyone?

Give up the video games all together - you are not 10 years old anymore.

I figure I can never grow old if I don't mature mentally. It's kinda a Peter Pan way of looking at life, but he never had video games to make it easier.

Besides, with a PS2, I can take the Bruins to the Stanley Cup year after year.

BTW, a hearty thanks to M-D for bailing me out.

I'll agree that it is O.K. for you to play video games at your age only if it is just hockey and The Bruins always win.

Well, I hate to say it, but I also play Madden and win the Super Bowl with the Raiders. Although I don't recall ever playing against the Cowboys in the big game though... (zing!)
