Leon, Chris, Jay, Josh and our community contributors unpick the machine’s aesthetics, aspirations and add-ons, as well as unpacking its vast and powerful library of games. Welcome to the Third Place.

  1. Ashamed to admit it’s the first pod I’ve listened to in ages! Really enjoyed it.

    Can confirm that my PS2 still gets regular use, particularly for Monster Buzz, the excellent party game using the buzz controllers.

    Also worth noting that when playing regular Buzz, you can plug in to sets of controllers and have 8 player local action. Can’t think of many other games or consoles that offer that. Or at least pre using phones as controllers.

    I notice Leon avoided giving the legendary PES sessions their proper name of “Geek Night”

  2. Ha, I’d kind of forgotten the ‘Geek Night’ moniker! Thanks for the feedback, Hoggins.
