GameStop PS2 Trade-In Begins Again

That console is over a decade old, granted that it was popular back in its day, but the PlayStation 3 held its own in the market and since late 2013 the PlayStation 4 has been ruling the market. Perhaps that’s why almost two years back GameStop said that it would no longer accept PlayStation 2 trade-ins, […]

PlayStation 2 goes portable

If you’re a fan of console mods, you’re gonna love this one. A modder from England has recently turned his PlayStation 2 into a portable console.
