    You don't want to load games via usb on a ps2, that's too slow. But since it is a slim, you could try network loading.

    Anyways, how new is the ps2? Does it have internal or external power supply? On a new ps2 you can't install Free McBoot, which means you would need to use Swap Magic or something similar everytime you want to launch something.

    usb loading is slow as ps2 is only USB 1.1 and Wii is USB 2.0. Slim do not have wifi. If the power cord has a "brick" it is external power (the plug is one circle, like most laptops). If it is just a wire to the wall its internal (a figure 8 shape connector with 2 pin).

    It should have a LAN port for cable based network, which is only faster and more reliable than wifi, nobody wants that.
