OK...looking into getting the PS2, but Best Buy is advertising a "special edition" at $179. Other local stores are selling the PS2 for $179, but they don't mention "special edition".

Anybody here know what the hell the difference is?

edit: Yes...it's "Limited" Edition...short term memory=BAD.

Is this Limited Edition (bestbuy.com) what you are talking about? Because I can't see anything special about that other than it's a regular old PS2, but that may be what's special about it, since its not one of the newer ones (bestbuy.com) that comes with the network adapter (and I think a built-in IR port for the DVD remote).

I had heard something about Sony dropping the price on the online bundle to $179.99, but the above ad indicates I may be incorrect.



If you're reading this, the tide was in.

Ugh...answered my own question:

http://www.us.playstation.com/purchase.aspx?id=97008

It appears that the "Limited" is ugly colors?

It also appears that Best Buy is listing a completely wrong price for the "Limited Edition", as the Sony website has them over $300!

Why would a special color PS2, be a bit of history?

At xboxic http://www.xboxic.com/news/1997 They talk about people experimenting with the new HD-DVD add on for the 360. Apparently it can hook up to any PC with ease and if you have XP or Vista you can access the file system and play HD movies.
