    Regarding "rare" PS2 games, there really aren't any. The game that's rated highest in the DP guide is the MGS 3: Subsistence LE, and that's only an R5 (it's gonna cost you, though).

    There are a good number of "pricey" games out there though, such as RPGs, LEs and many Atlus-published titles (don't pay more than $5 for ChoroQ, though - that's been a common sight in bargain bins).

    As of today, I'm counting 1612 US titles total. There may be a few here or there that I'm missing, or a few LE games that I don't have added yet.

    Impressive. According to this 1601 NTSC games have been released as of 30th of june 2008

    Then again, you NTSC guys have it easy. It seems i need to get almost twice as many games to complete my PAL collection

    Like GC and Xbox?

    I believe the Xbox is over 830 (I'm still working on the list corrections) but its under 900.

    The 360 is around 260 for US retail releases now.

    Thanks for the link. I didn't know that existed.

    Looks like I'm at 1605 as of 6/30, and I know I've got some titles double listed for limited editions or collector's packages. I'm happy to see that I'm pretty close to Sony's count.

    Right now, I'd be willing to bet you could pick up close to half of the system's library for $5 or less.

    I'm really surprised there is only 1600+ ps2 games. I figured alot more, based on the slus, and scus numbers when added together, minus demos and OPM discs of course. In a way im glad its lower then expected, i can say i have over half right now.

    Oobgarm do you have some kind of master list you might be able to send me? Please.

    Do you also keep track of variants, cause I've started writing down what variants i find as i spot them. Most i do not have yet, just adding them to lists as i stumble upon them, but its always nice to have some knowledge about whats out there variant wise.

    That's still $3000-$4000. That's a lot of money for the bottom of the PS2 barrel.

    It won't be ungodly expensive either. Wouldn't a CIB NES set run you a lot more money? This isn't a half bad set to have though.

    I don't think so. If it weren't for Stadium Events and a few of the other ubers it wouldn't even be that close. You're right, though, it would be a great set. There are more games for the ps2 that I want to play than any other system.

    With the market seeming to be on the rise as it is, CIB NES stuff isn't cheap. CIB PS2, can, on the other hand, be found quite inexpensive.

    Uh, yeah. At least a buttload of the ps2 games can be had for uber cheap like others said. I know the value of spending a bunch of money for games now that I just ponied up the dough today for a rare game (Jack Bros for VB)

    Good luck, and take pics, that would be awesome to see

    PlayStation.com says "2,400 Games and Counting", if that helps any.

    That number must be based off something different, possibly the number of catalogue numbers Sony has assigned or something.

    There's no way we're missing over 800 games off our list here.

    Playstation.com seems to be missing several games, though. I don't trust that site's release information.

    They like to count releases across regions and in some cases have double count the NTSC/PAL releases. Just like Nintendo, Sony's numbers are not very solid. The tally that Oob has is probably about as close as we can expect until they kill the system.

    At 1600 titles i'm down to a mere 27.8% of the total titles released. That makes me kinda sad. I remember when I was pushing 50% for a while. Thats ok, i've still got another few hundred Demos and other things on top of that.
    Because it makes no attempt to be great, it is therefore extremely great.
