I have had my PS2 for 5 years...I want ONLINE...NOW!

Post by demonofaj » Sat Feb 11, 2006 2:25 pm

I have a few questions that Google has yielded giving me answers on.

A: What do I need.

I have:

A PS2 (old, blocky one)
B A DSL connection

Thats all.

B: How do you do it?

Well how do you set it up and stuff?

C: Does it cost money?

As in does Sony or Verizon charge you anything? Because, if so...I can't do it :-(

I think you need a network adapter. Other than that, im pretty sure you dont need anything else.
I'm the man, if you don't think so, you're wrong.

:shock:

Where did you get those stats from? Whenever I play Halo 2 on Live there seems to be an unfathomable amount of people... I must admit SOCOM3 seems better to me than Halo 2, I enjoy the huge 32-player battles - awesome! But I'm not sure about those stats... :roll:

And demon you can get the network adapter used for $20 at Gamestop. Everything else after that is phree.

I have ps2 online all you need is the network adapter and an internet connecction. The only game that charges money is ffxi and I think one other game might cost money. I havent been on in a while but If you want to play when you get it I have tony hawks underground 1 and 2 I also have american wasteland and madden 04. If anyone wants to play online with me just pm me a time.

Elaborate please? Is it because it costs ~$5 a month?

I wonder if when you play FFXI on your 360 you have to pay $5 for live and then $10 more for FFXI. That would suck if it was that way.

well actually I got them from an issue of EGM quite a few months ago, so Im not sure that they are still accurate. I can't remember which issue it was or I would have put exact stats. oh and as for socom3, hooya!!! :D
