Depending on which SKU (Stock Keeping Unit) you get, normally classed by the hard drive size it's different. Certain SKUs have PS2 hardware inside to play all PS2 games, some have an emulator to play most, others have no PS2 support at all. @OP Find out the gb size of the old console and see if you can get a model of the same SKU which is new, if so, whats the price difference, does it make sense to pay that extra premium to get a new console?
