PlayStation 2 Peripheral Which Lets You to Both Pretend to be an Air Traffic Controller AND Communicate Online of the Month:
PlayStation 2 Headset
First off, let me clear up any confusion there may be over what exactly a headset is. It is not, despite popular belief, a set of heads. It does bring several heads together, though, in a way. It is a handy little device that sits on your skull and lets you communicate with people without the aid of a keyboard.
This is probably the best way to communicate with anyone online while playing PS2 games since, in many cases, the TV and PS2 are not set up at a desk, and this would force a person to hold the keyboard on their lap while playing if they wanted to communicate. Holding the keyboard on your lap may not be much of a problem for many people, but I find myself often needing to reach over and grab a drink while playing, or lean over to pick something up, and this would cause my keyboard to just slide off my lap and onto the ground and possibly shatter into thousands of pieces. The headset, on the other hand, will probably NEVER shatter into thousands of pieces, and instead just stays nicely situated on your head, even when you have to pick up a can of coke from the floor during a loading screen or something such. Also, it would be rather difficult to communicate during combat with a keyboard, since you need both hands to operate the controller, and at least one if you want to type anything effectively.
So, in summation (remember kids, NEVER start your conclusion with “to sum it up”, “my conclusion is”, “in summation”, or anything similar! It just adds crappy to your already boring papers) using the headset doesn’t involve all of the complications that come along with using a keyboard, and lets you have just a generally better game playing session.
