The console was in great condition when I got it, and seems to work perfectly, it did have small scratches on the outside, but it's not very detrimental to its look. There are many great games for this system, and you can even play PS1 games on it, and they run great, however if you want to save data on a PS1 game, you'll need a PS1 memory card, cause PS1 games aren't compatible with the PS2 memory card. You will want to buy a PS2 memory card for this if you want to save games, as there is no storage device already in the system. I also got this at a very good price. The controller is alright, the d pad clicks nicely, the 4 buttons click nicely, L1 and R1 feel good, but L2 and R2 feel a bit stiff, and aren't as smooth as the original PS2 controller, the analog sticks click ok, and moving them around feels fine, but it's not as smooth as the original PS2 controller to do both of those things, my biggest complaint are the sensitivity of the analog sticks, I'll use GTA Vice City as an example, in GTA VC the farther you push the joystick on the original PS2 controller, the faster you walk or run, with this controller, it's still like that, but there's only a teensy bit you can push the stick to walk slowly, and you'll find yourself accidentally fast walking, due to this, I was not able to pass a mission, so I had to use a PS1 analog controller to pass the mission, depending on the game you're playing this might not be an issue, but I recommend using the original Sony PS2 controller, or a PS1 analog controller. Other than that, I highly recommend buying this system.
