Yeah, works like a charm. I was playing San Andreas on it yesterday infact, Man that game is fucking amazing. The only problem is one of the controller's analog sticks gets stuck sometimes. And so does the disc tray, but only rarely.
I was about to go and answer this question, set up my old PS2 then saw that there was no power lead in the box, and realised that it must have been the one in that pile of old electrical junk I took down the rubbish dump about 45 minutes ago. Fuck. Anyone know if a PS2 (original, UK) need a special power lead?
