DUALSHOCK2 Analog Controller
Sony Dualshock2 Black SCPH-10010EWhen the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system was announced, the DualShock 2 Analog Controller (SCPH-10010) included with it was almost exactly the same externally as the previous DualShock analog controller, except that it was black (colors came later), had different screw positioning (one fewer), and the DualShock 2 logo was added.
Another way to tell the DualShock and the DualShock 2 controllers apart is that the connector that plugs into the console matches that console’s memory card shape; the DualShock’s connector has rounded shoulders and DualShock 2’s is squared off.
The analogue sticks were also noticeably stiffer for more accurate movements. Internally, the DualShock 2 was lighter and all of the buttons (except for the Analog mode, L3 and R3 buttons) were readable as analog values (pressure sensitive). The official DUALSHOCK2 analog controller delivers pressure sensitivity on every action button and the enhanced mobility of the analog thumbsticks.
EyeToy USB Camera
EyeToy for PlayStation 2The EyeToy USB camera translates for EyeToy compatible games your body movements into the controller input, to map your face onto in-game characters and more! The EyeToy USB camera also has a built-in microphone to record short video messages right onto your Memory Card (8MB) for PlayStation 2.
The PSX is a fully functional digital video recorder with RF, S-Video and composite inputs.
It is able to tune analog VHF and CATV. It comes with a remote control and can be also linked with a PlayStation Portable to transfer videos and music via USB ports. It also features software for video, photo and audio editing.
The PSX supports PlayStation and PlayStation 2 gaming using PlayStation 2-based hardware, with Emotion Engine, Graphics Synthesizer and the I/O processor. It supports online game compatibility using an internal broadband adapter. Games that utilize the PS2 HDD (for example Final Fantasy XI) are supported as well.
The PSX doesn’t include a controller. A special ceramic-white, USB DualShock 2 was released separately. However, original DualShocks are fully supported by two joystick ports in the back side and memory cards are also supported via port in the front side.
The PSX is also known for its introduction of Sony’s XMB graphical user interface, used later on PlayStation Portable, PlayStation 3, 2018 BRAVIA model TVs and other Sony devices.
PSP LogoThe PlayStation Portable (officially abbreviated PSP) is a handheld game console manufactured and marketed by Sony Computer Entertainment. Development of the console was announced during E3 2003, and it was unveiled on May 11, 2004 at a Sony press conference before E3 2004.
The system was released in Japan on December 12, 2004, in North America on March 24, 2005, and in the PAL region on September 1, 2005.
The PlayStation Portable is the first handheld video game console to use an optical disc format, Universal Media Disc (UMD), as its primary storage medium. Other distinguishing features of the console include its large viewing screen, robust multi-media capabilities, and connectivity with the PlayStation 3, other PSPs, and the Internet.
Despite the console’s superior computing power and multimedia capabilities, sales have (with cyclical exceptions) lagged behind its main competitor, the Nintendo DS. Nevertheless, the console is “the most successful non-Nintendo handheld game system ever sold”.
After the release of a remodeled, slimmer, and lighter version of the PlayStation Portable, appropriately titled Slim and Lite, in early September 2007, sales quadrupled in the United Kingdom the following week and increased by nearly 200% in North America for the month of October.
Two more PSPs have been made, PSP-3000 & PSP Go.
