Accessories to Upgrade Your PS2
Can't afford a new, high priced console right now but still love your PS2? Have no fear, there are some great accessories that you can add to it to upgrade your gaming without killing your wallet.
Why Add Accessories for Your PS2?
Sure there are many better gaming consoles out right now, but maybe you just don't have the extra cash to shell out $400+ on one, especially when you have a great PS2 and tons of sweet games that you can check out still. Well, have no fear, you don't have to go out and get a new console system, instead, pick up some of these low cost console accessories to help trick out the great PS2 console that you already have.
XFPS Mini Guitar
Oh yeah, this tiny baby rocks - and so will you. Instead of that massive monster that will cost you about $100 at the local Wal-Mart, the XFPS Mini Guitar runs about $45-50 online and plays all the great guitar games that you love. You can even use this one mini guitar on both the PS2 and the Xbox 360, so you can take it with you when you are headed over to a friend's house for some guitar combat. Another great point that I like about this one, it's actually made of wood, not plastic, so it has a more realistic guitar feel to it. Plus, it just looks cool.
Chameleon Wireless Controller
Now, I've had some of the clear controllers but this one takes the cake. While it has the same basic look and feel of a classic PS2 controller, you can see through this bad boy and you get one added bonus that nothing else offers: the L2/R2 buttons are shifted down just slightly so that you actually gain some great fire powering motion. This small shift gives you a massive advantage that you would never dream of before, in just the slightest change. Now, the Chameleon will run you about $30-40 online (depending on where you order it from) which is still not a bad price to pay for a cool wireless controller that will give you a slight edge over anyone you play against.
PS2 Dance Pad
You have to admit, that even if you aren't a hard core fan of Dance Dance Revolution (or any variation there of) you have played it once or twice... I have (just don't tell anyone). For those that are, and want a great way to exercise without paying over $400 for a Wii and Wii Fit, here is your answer: the Dance Pad for your PS2. This bad boy only runs about $25, which is a drop in the bucket compared to purchasing everything you need for a Wii. Dance it up, shake it off, and exercise as you game it up.
Access Pro Opening Tools
This pro set of tools can help you repair and upgrade your PS2 and help you save money by keeping your old console working. This easy to use tool kit actually includes the tools for opening tons of different gaming consoles, such as Sonys (PS2, PSP, & PS3), Nintendos (Wii, GameCube, DS, and even cartridges), and Microsofts (Xbox 360 and Xbox). By having the tools and the instructions that you'll need to change out and upgrade your old gaming systems, you can save money, and those great old school games that you love. And, believe it or not, this sweet kit will only set you back about $25.
