    I don't care if it's fat or slim or whatever, I just want one. Any cheap sites?

    If you're willing to do a bit of soldering, look for a broken PS2 slim on eBay, but make sure the only thing wrong with it is that the power light wont turn green/ turns on for only a second. Open it up and solder the part, it only takes a few minutes (look on youtube). You should be able to get one pretty cheap if you do this. I got one for €20 and it works fine. Buying used is your cheapest option.

    Would $50 for a slim PS2 (the fat one is $50 aswell) from GameStop be worth the money?

    Yes that seems like a good price.
    Get it from Cash Converters though (if you have that shop at America)

    Dumpster dive at a local Gamestop or similar store. That's where I got two of my PS2s, one fat, one slim, I just found the fat like 2 months ago too, so your chances are still relative. As for the cost, well it's free!

    Wait, would they take a GameCube with a burned out laser? That could help bring my payment down oh $8. [​IMG]
