The Playstation 2 is the most popular gaming console in the
world currently. With 25 million sold in the US and 70 million
sold worldwide there is a pretty good chance your family has
one. Hopefully you haven’t had to deal with a broken one
yet, but if it does break what are you going to do? Your kids
are yelling "Mom/Dad we need our PS2 repaired. We can't
play games anymore". You love your kids and you know how
much they love playing the PS2, plus it keeps them occupied
and out of trouble, so it is very important to you to have a
working Playstation 2 in your house.
However, the electric bill is due, the house payment is coming
up, or you can think of a number of other things that make it
easy for you to justify not spending $129.00 right now on a
new PS2. Still the problem persists, no Playstation 2 in the
house. What else can you do? You have to spend the money and
buy a new one right?
Now, you can send your console off for repair or you can try
to repair it yourself. Both of these choices can save you a
lot of money versus buying a new one. Let’s take a closer
look at your options and see which one is best for you.
