Has anyone seen an official multi-tap for the original PS2? Also, does the slimline designed multi-tap really not work with the original PS2? If not why not?

I believe they might be selling the hard drives separately, so plenty of opportunity to milk a few more quid there somewhere along the way. Plus there's the slimline PSThree which will predictably be out around 2011 which won't be compatible with anything previously, probably.

It does say its "Compatible with previous Playstation 2 models via seperate cable." Wonder if that means the new ones come with them. Doubt it though...

Nah, they're incompatible with each other; the right multitap version must be bought for your console.

Sony are great at milking everything. But no more for the PS3.

Yep saw one in... CEX (Computer EXchange)

However, hard to get hold of (*new) but the Joytech one SR sells is class. Actually, I've got one in the cabinet behind me, through the tinted black glass.

Aye, fear the glass.

There was an original PS2 'tap years ago. I didnt know there was a new "slim" version. Just get an old one = problem solved.

I know that the normal multi-tap doesn't work with the slimline as I tried it at a mates house but I am not sure if the slimline one works with the normal PS2.My guess is it doesn't.
