I am thinking of getting a DVD player (standalone) and would like any comments on getting a PS2 so we get a games console as well as a DVD player. Does a PS2 have svideo out? Is a PS2 multizone for DVDs?
Or would I be better off getting a video card so I can use the DVD drive in my computer to watch DVDs on the TV?
Thanks

Can't comment on the PS2, but sure someone will.

Re the DVD drive and a graphics card with TV out on the PC, I would recommend a stand-alone DVD player.
$199 - $229 buys a good DVD player with multi-zone, Macrovision disable, CDR/CDRW/MP3 capabilities, multichannel sound ouputs etc.

Just get the PS2.
goto http://www.sony.co.nz

and check out the accesories you will see that the PS2 has s-video capabilities.

Yes a PS2 is multizoned

no you would not be better off using your computer as a dvd player.

the PS2 will do a good job.
