The PS2 is looking more and more attractive these days, what with a nice low price tag and an absolutely immense library. Even so, Sony likes to give us more incentive every once in a while, and this new one is extra family friendly.
It's the LEGO Batman PS2 Limited Edition bundle, available now at all major retailers for $149.99. Travellers Tales always presents us with rock solid LEGO-based titles, and all of them are great fun for both one and two players. This package includes a standard black PS2, one Dual Shock 2 controller, LEGO Batman: The Videogame , and a special "Justice League: The New Frontier" DVD. According to the official PlayStation blog, this bundle is indeed "limited," as once the initial supply is drained, you won't be seeing them again. Therefore, if you're looking for an early Christmas present for the kids, or you're a fan of the LEGO games and have been looking for an excuse to pick up the PS2 again (or for the first time, ya slacker), this is a great option. We expect more PS2 bundles for the holidays, and we're also hoping for a price drop to $99. What with the new PS2 model coming out with the same $129.99 price tag, we'd like to assume the old model enjoys a price cut…
As a side note, stay tuned for our LEGO Batman: The Videogame PlayStation 3 review, which isn't far off. Oddly enough, while most games based on movies have been awful in the past, the LEGO games have almost always been good. No exaggeration or sarcasm there at all.
