Show Us Your 10-Year-Old PlayStation 2

The PlayStation 2 is 10-years-old today, and just saying happy birthday and talking about our PS2 experiences isn't enough! Take a picture of your PS2 and share it with the class. You show us yours, and I'll show you mine.

Unfortunately my last bulky PlayStation 2 console, complete with clear plastic case mod, was retired a few years ago, when I lent it to my niece, who's toddler liked to use the controller cord as a whip. I replaced that one with a black PS2 Slim, seen below, which I tricked out with a pop-up cover so I could play imports and press preview copies via swap disc. I assure you that when I say imports and press preview copies, there are no air quotes.

Last year I discovered that I needed a good DVD player for my bedroom. After going through to horrible $39 discount models, I decided to go with the one DVD player that's never let me down. The silver PS2 Slim sits atop my bedroom dresser, hooked up to a 32-inch LCD TV and oftentimes buried under stacks of graphic novels and DVD cases. I'd like to think it feels the love.
