I haven't been able to have any luck on getting a working PS2 for the money I have so I may buy a "broken" one and fix it myself. I also figure that there is a good chance that it would have that problem if I bought a working one anyway so I might as well, right?

how cheap? its not a bad idea especially if its a really low price, but it is a risk. if u do decide to do it id be interested in knowing how it turns out.

The ones I see that are "broken" right now are ending at like $50 plus about $15 shipping. The used working ones are ending at like $100 plus about $30 shipping, the brand new ones are ending at at like $130 plus like $30 shipping so it is a pretty big difference. I think what I may do it call my local EB tomorrow and play like I have one and ask them if a disk read er. can be fixed and see what they say.

Never mind...I got a working one on eBay for $130 with shipping. Now I just have to go to EB to get the online adapter and try to bid on madden.
