Thumbs down PS2 trouble

when reading this thread, you might get the impression that i'm a little 'dissapointed' with sony.

Yesterday I bought a new slimline PS2.
I was so excited to be able to play God of War 2 and GTA: San Andreas again.

the slimline worked great for about 20 minutes then it started making a buzzing noise, then later-on it started getting worse.

It sounds kinda like a faulty flourescent light, but with a higher and more pure tone that fills the room and penertrates my head. ......i mean it's f@*^#'n irritating!.

my clunky old house brick sized PS2 (probably the first model) didnt make this kind of sound.

Has anyone else experienced this with the current slimline model.

I think I can remember that some Disks make noise when running up to speed. The disks vibrate causing the sound but by what your indicating it might be more then that.

Any chance you can take it back for a replacement.?

Hmm ... I think I will take the chainsaw ... with the added long range fire power. Lancer beats chain swords

Now that brings up a discussion that needs pondering; What is the best / most powerful (hand carried) weapon in a video game?

anything they fire at Kratos, he can catch it and fling the projectile back at them .

......then he would punch the ground so hard that all enemies in the area die and disintergrate

that's why you need a PS2
