View Full Version : I have a problem...

I know this is a forum for PS3, but what I have a problem with is close enough.

I lost the memory cards for my Playstation 2. Basically, when I got my PS3, I packed the PS2 away in its box and forgot about it.

Fast forward 6 years and I've sold off my PS3 for Halo 4 and I want to play a PS2 game.

Can I leave my PS2 on without turning it off? This seems like the only course of action. I can't save and I don't want to keep starting my game over and over again.

This idea came from my brother. When he came to stay with us, he slept in my room and had his PS2 on day and night. He didn't save his games, he just paused it and turned off the TV. His PS2 seemed fine. It even played a game that my PS2 wouldn't.

So what should I do? And before anyone says it, yes, I know I should go buy a memory card. But I won't. I already have two floating around somewhere and I have no money. While I implement this plan, I'll continue searching for them.

I haven't begun playing yet. I'm waiting for a second opinion.

Thanks guys, --G.

Im not a playstation person, however im sure leaving your PS2 turned on day and night shouldnt be an issue.... just make sure you dont accidently turn it off... you might rage lol

if you don't mind the huge energy cost and a soaring electricity bill, whatever. but i advise against it, one power outage and bam. I don't know how good PS2's are, but overheating might be an issue.

Memory cards should be like 6 bucks or so.

I'd be devastated if I lost my PS1 memory cards. My YGO Abridged Memories save, couldn't bear to lose it. T_T Same goes for my original Xbox. KOTOR Galaxy Droid FTW.

I've got the overheating thing covered. It's winter and my window is right next to it, so I'll just open it.

I'll probably take Shakeweights advice and break down and buy one. I don't want to run up the energy bill. I hadn't thought of that.
