Still play my PS2 everyday. Usually Dragon Ball Z Budokai 3. Was gonna get the HD collection until I found out the music was taken out. Dragon Quest 8 is another reason to keep the PS2. Hopefully these amazing games will be released on PSN but from what I hear it's very unlikely. Too bad too cause those are my favorite PS2 games.
I would really like to use my Tosca Race Driver 3 on my PS2 but I can't. The game won't use the "Bonus Code" we've used for years and when I contacted Codemasters they told me bonus codes are no longer available due to age of game.
This is really terrible and I feel Codemasters have let customers down - we didn't know there was a limited lifespan on the game we purchased in good faith. Any ideas ? If anyone knows of any other game which covers British Race Circuits like this one - would be very grateful.
I've spent the last 3 days home after eye surgery and had the greatest time .... no, not with my PS 3 but with my PS 2 ... I can't understand Sony . Those who love games should know there are just a ton of varied and different reasons to buy disks. I don't want to actually know how to fly a chopper after 200 hours of simulator grief ... I don't want to fight off 40 jungle solders with 20 bullets and a rusty melee weapon ... I love the artwork, I love to watch the entire story like a movie, I paid for it's use and I want to see the conclusion of the story and all 16 crazy endings ... that's why I play. So whats my point ? I can only do all that on my PS2 thanks to Gameshark, Action Replay, Codebreaker, and Pelican disks ... Ok, no argument on why all console makers hate these companies . Good, be that way .... but put the **bleep** 'cracks' within the purchased game ... and no, not after 3 playthroughs on 'incredibly hard' ... my God I'm buying the products for you ... must I actually use them only as you demand ? It's like buying a new Sports car only to learn I must never cruise the boulevard at any speed less than 80, or buy a steak at a grocery store that must only be eaten after proof of purchase of some expensive vintage wine.
The PS2 created cheat disks were wonderful for what the intent of a player is ... so I am not the best at games ... so I'm forever cursed to keep buying ... oh yea, they like me to do that ... but only to remind me I will never get to see anything but the first hour or so ... becvause even the game producers won't put the 'cracks' or a debug level in just for we players with tons of other reasons for buying and playing games ... go figger is my only final comment plus a question ... Wouldn't any of us as the creator or part of a game's production team enjoy knowing that all have seen the entire wonderful creation aside from 'just beating' the game ? Heck, you would think even the staffs would want to let ALL players see thier new baby boy ... either by the included cracks or on plain skill alone .... What other product in the world excludes or limits it's own full use and enjoyment ... and AFTER a full and legal dollar sale ... And as a retired businessman I even laugh at these game companies who are missing an extra chance for even more profit .... I can't be the only one who would gladly buy a $59 game AND the optional $12 CRACK disk produced by the same maker of the game ... No insult to real gamers, more profit to the game producers, I'm happy, you professionals are not outraged, gamemaker laughs all the way to the bank, etc etc ... They could save the need for a separate optional disk by putting the same game out for an extra $10 that includes the "ENJOY THE COMPLETE LABOR OF LOVE " mode that includes total God mode ,all weapons, ... exactly as the old cheat disks had .... Even the hard core pros in here might not realize that they may have a quick kill talent for final bosses that didn't make you hang around all enough (as you can in invulnerable mode) to let you learn of even more secret rooms and other endings ... so even the Rambo skilled player might not know about one or two other endings in thier disks .... I stare at a stack of PS3 disks in the corner .... fully purchased ... and like a book with pages missing , must only wonder at what the beautiful but unseen artwork and final plotline .... was ....
i still have my PS2 out in the open, i rarely play it though. i tried to start up a new game of Soul Nomad & the World Eaters, got distracted, started a new game of Persona 4 after i finished Persona 4 Arena. i tried to start a new game of Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne when i bought a copy i found at a store. it looked lonely and out of place, between those obsolete sports titles in filler cases.
