The PlayStation 2 Slim was a later version of the original PS2. Lighter and smaller than the original, it offered all the functionality of its bigger brother, but without taking up so much space beneath your television. While the PS2 Slim was known for its reliability, it can experience problems like any electrical device, including being unable to switch on.
