Here's the final and definitive list of all the games that were released on or before Thursday, October 26, 2000 for the PlayStation 2 in North America.
i remember talking my gf into "floating" a check at walmart in order for me to get one. thankfully this was long before the days where they actually checked to see if the account had funds lol.
IMO its just behind the SNES and Xbox 360 lineups
Haha, you know, I hate you man but you're good at what you do.
PS2's first year lineup was and still better than all this gen games put together, IMO!!!!
I hope your talking about the launch lineup and not the entire PS2 library. Even if you are the PS2's launch lineup kills the 360's. The entire PS2 library is humongous and full of amazing titles. The 360 game library can't even stand up to the PS2's so how is it supposed to compete with the PS3?
havent you people learnt not to reply to anyone with green in their name by now??? DUH!!!
LMAO.. Did you really just say the 360 cant stand up to a 10 year line up with massive 3rd party support so how can it stand to up against the PS3 with its constant delays and poor 3rd party support? Delusional just doesnt cover it.
Disagree all you want but no way the PS3 library beats the PS2s and it never will
What an awesome lineup that was! I still own Tekken Tag Tournament and Midnight Club!
3.xbox360 - shooters only 2.snes - mario only 1. Always PS2 - Variety of games PS2 is behind others
first game i got at launch for the ps2 was fantavision. remember that?
What?! The PS2 launch lineup was terrible...I bought one (Tekken Tag, I was mad for Tekken 3 back then) but I had to wait more than half a year for a decent release, which was GT3. Ah, at least GT didn't take forever then!
"Disagree all you want but no way the PS3 library beats the PS2s and it never will" -You Great that you're a PS2 fan, but how could you think that when: #1. PS3's exclusives are already up there with the all-time best consoles, not even counting what's still to come. #2. It's getting a lot of PS2's great games, in HD, with extras like trophies, 3D, Move support, etc. How can the PS3 game library not become better than the PS2s when it has better quality versions of PS2's best games along with its own? I think by the end of next year, with: *the PS3's exclusives *PS3 Move exclusives like Sorcery *this generation's multiplats with 360 *this generation's multiplats with the PC (DC Universe, FFXIV [if it's any good], etc.) *this generations multiplats with Wii that it's starting to take *Upgraded & HD versions of the best of PS2's library.. possibly PS1's also like Metal Gear Solid in an MGS:Collection. I don't see how the PS3 isn't the #1 console of all time after 2011 (quality-wise).. and especially after the 'real' PS3 Slim hits shelves. Throw in 2012, 2013, 2014 and I think it's a no-brainer that the PS3 is an absolute beast.
360 has good 3rd party support but not as much as how PS2 had, BTW, both ps3 and 360 are getting the same amount of 3rd party support!!!!
Maybe Wal-mart will see this and track you down for admitting it :P
SSX was the first PS2 game I played at a friends house. Very fun game, they need to bring that back.
If the PS2 came out today I would be buying Midnight Club and SSX. I got my PS2 in 2001 so I ended up getting Midnight Club 2 and SSX Tricky and never got to play the originals. I'll look for them next time I'm at the game store.
This has got to be the weakest launch title line-up ever in the history of video games. I bought my PS2 with The Matrix DVD and didn't buy a game until Red Faction came out then it was all good from then on out.
I remember when the N64 was launched. Two games. Mario 64 and Pilotwings 64, that was it! Although Mario 64 was stronger in itself than the entire PS2 launch lineup.
What about Time Spliters? Time Spliters > Every current gen Sony FPS combined. Bring itback !!!!!
the ps2 is DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOMDDDDDD
Yeah who needs DVD its a fail format I will be fine with my GDROMs!!!!!!!!!!!!!
They forgot one: The Legendary Demo Disk.
Sony games is where is at...
Evergrace is still one of my favorite JRPGS of all time... loved that game.
Got my ps2 on launch day with SSX and The Matrix on DVD. SSX was a great choice, looking back on it.
King Of Consoles! Btw, whats up with all the unnecessary tags above?
good times, good times.
dont judge a system by its launch lineup
ahh there you go trolls ps2 did not have many games at launch either and look what happened, ps2 became king, one day ps3 will do the same eventually
look at the many differ genres the line up has.
Wow, this brings back some memories. I can't believe its been 10 years.
omg UT, SSX and evergrace were my favs... wow lol I remember all the news about the shortage of ps2's.. my parents waited in line all night just to get one for me for xmas that year... oh the memories... I wish I was young again =(
Tekken Tag Tourney was the only decent game on this list. In 2000 I was PC gaming hardcore anyways. Thats where it was really at!
Counterstrike and Everquest, recognize!
3ds will have the perfect line up /- just look the games
this has nothing to do with the 3ds,god the ignorance in people really ticks me off
I remember getting in line at Zellers at about midnight to make sure I got my PS2 on launch day. Picked it up with Summoner and Timesplitters (and the stupid expensive stand). Picked up Gungriffon Blaze a month later, as I was a HUGE Working Designs fan. In those first few months though, I think I played Final Fantasy IX more than anything else. I sold my PS2 when the XBox came out a year later, and, being a huge RPG fan, have always regretted it. I repurchased a PS2 just last year, and now snatch up classic RPG titles any time I see them.
my first PS2 game was Tekken Tag Tournament, what a great game with jaw dropping graphics
am too first game was tekken tag and i still have the disc but it dead disc and second was about alien vs alien but i forget what the name that days game for fun not for shoot
The original SSX was good, but SSX Tricky is still the best snowboarding game ever made. God that game rocked...
i only got the ps2 for final fantasy period... and i got my ps3 for god of war 3 period. and discovered uncharted resistance, killzone, heavenly sword, little big planet, infamous, do i seriously need to keep going? lol
