There are few things more irritating than having the excitement of getting a new PS2 game for your birthday quashed by your PS2 refusing to run it. I’ve been getting the occasional “Unable To Read Disk” error for awhile now, but usually once it does manage to read the disk it’ll run the game just fine, but not tonight. Not only did it take a good 12 or 15 attempts to get the game to boot, but after creating a profile and going to the game launch menu it froze up on me every time.
Not that I can complain much. I’ve had this PS2 for a long time, it’s one of the original models complete with a big honking network adapter hanging off the back, but it’s still annoying. I was hoping to be able to enjoy it at least until I could afford to pick up a PS3 as I really don’t want to shell out for a new PS2 when there’s that PS3 goodness sitting on the store shelves. Oh well, looks like it may be a bit before I can play this game.
