* PS2 slimline has a few issues

Printer-friendly page Print this story   Email this to a friend
Looks like the new PS2 Slimline has issues with a few games due to "updated" firmware.

The largest concerns for American buyers, if the SCPH-75000 ever debuts in North America, will be issues with the recent Tekken 5, in which the save screen can freeze the game after loading Tekken 3 in Arcade History, and Hitman Contracts, which suffers from longer-than-usual save times. Other affected games on PS2, in relative order of impact, are Gauntlet: Dark Legacy, F1 2001, F1 2002, Racing Battle C1 Grand Prix, and The Stylish Mahjong.

The list of affected PSone games, however, is quite a bit longer, though still includes a relatively small number of games to be concerned about. Chief among these is the Dual Shock or 5th Anniversary Package version of Resident Evil 2, where the sound playback during movies is incorrect, and Chrono Cross, which also has problems during its ending movie. Also on the list of 39 games is Test Drive 4, Krazy Ivan, Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX, and Worms.
