Why Renting PS2 Games Online is Better

The PlayStation 2 video game console is one of the most popular game consoles in the world today. Although there are consoles that are more advanced than the PS2 game console, it still remains as one of the most widely played game consoles and has an incredibly wide range of games and game types which can be played on it.

But all these games can not be accessed at a video game store. The only way to find the wide variety of games is to go online since most stores no longer keep all PS2 games. Buying a PS2 game can be expensive, especially if you have to buy them online and pay for things like shipping. So instead of wasting your hard earned money, you can now rent them.

Most people rent PS2 games from stores that usually do not have a good collection. There are a lot of problems that come along with renting from a store. Waiting for someone to return a game which has already been rented out is one of the worst problems you can have with a rental store. Another Big problem with rental stores is the shortage of variety. Most rental stores do not keep old games which you might want to try out. The collection is bad as it is and on top of that you have to deal with grumpy clerks. Late fees are also a horrible problem when it comes to dealing with game rental stores. Sometimes you may not have the time to finish a game before the deadline and you end up wasting a whole lot of money if you plan on keeping the game even after the deadline.

All these problems of renting from a video store can be avoided by renting PS2 games online. It is so much more convenient and you will find an endless variety of game titles that. An even better thing about renting online is having a number of titles in your possession at one time. This definitely can not be done with a normal video game rental store.

If you rent video games online you will no longer have to pay late fees. Online video game rental allows you to keep a title for as long as you want as long as you have paid the subscription fee for that month.

As you can see, renting online will not only save you money, but will also offer you with an infinite collection of titles that will have you playing toill you drop. Its an easy process when it comes to subscribing and you wont have to pay for anything after that.

How to Find Out Whether It's the Power Supply or the Console That Is Causing Your RROD

As discussed in some of my previous articles / lens, the Red Ring of Death can be caused by many, many things. One of the things that I mentioned was issues with the powerbox. Since I posted that, quite a lot of people have messed me to ask me if I could tell them whether it was the console or the power that was having the problem. So here it is, all you people – Diagnosis for your Xbox 360.

First, look at the back of the console and follow the wire along until you see the powerbrick. If the light is green, orange, red or not lit at all, then you have to do is unplug everything, and then plug it back in. Then you can try turning the Xbox 360 it on again. If you still have the red lights, then follow the next set of steps.

If that did not work, then you need to move your console into another room and plug everything in. If the light on the powerbrick turns green, then there is a problem with the wall socket that you were using before. Before plugging the connector back into the wall, make sure to have it inspected for damage.

If the powerbrick is still not lit after all these steps, then you need to get a replacement power supply. You can get them off Amazon, or if you are willing to wait a while, you can get them from Microsoft.

If the powerbrick is red or orange after the steps, then try to cool the powerbrick down. Unplug it from the wall, and then leave it in a cool place BUT NOT IN A FRIDGE OR FREEZER. The place needs to be somewhere cool and well ventilated, not somewhere freezing cold. After it's been left for a while, plug it back into your Xbox and the wall. If the power supply remains red, then you have a problem with your power supply. You will need to get a new one.

If you still have the Red Ring of Death and the power brick's light is green, then you need to repair your Xbox. By repair, note that I do not mean wrap it in a bunch of towels or start bearing down on it with a DIY soldering kit. I mean that you will actually need to fix it properly. If, it's in warranty, you can send it back to Microsoft, but that will take up to two months to return it to you.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Oreo update: Top features + what’s new!

Samsung Galaxy S8 owners around the world will soon be getting their first major Android update. The upgrade to Oreo keeps the core GS8 experience the same, but brings welcome performance tweaks and a handful of new features on top of everything else this phone could already do.

First of all, though, your Galaxy S8 is still a Galaxy S8. This update doesn’t make any drastic changes to the overall look or feel of Samsung’s software, even though technically we’re up to “Samsung Experience” version 9 now.

Of course this is Android Oreo, so you get all the new features we’ve been seeing in Pixel phones and some others for the past few months — things like improved notification management — notifications channels, and the ability to snooze alerts that aren’t important right this second. And it’s also easier to sign into apps — Autofill with Google pulls in details automatically from your Google account.

Other changes on the Samsung side? New edge lighting, shortcut features from the Note 8, new clock widgets, a GIF keyboard and much more. Check out our Galaxy S8 Oreo video above for a quick rundown of what’s new.

Maker of the Tesla Model S hearse is now making a Model S wagon

When we learned earlier this year that a group of engineers in Europe set out to turn a Tesla Model S into a station wagon, also known as a shooting-brake, and make it available as a mod, I suggested that it’s not unimaginable after another company turned a Model S into a hearse.

Now this same company announced that it is also working on a Model S wagon.

Amsterdam-based Coachbuilder RemetzCar is better known for stretching cars, but it was first introduced to the EV community when they unveiled their Model S hearse built for a client.

Now they are using their experience modifying the back of Tesla’s sedan through that project to build a Model S shooting brake.

Designer Niels van Roij wrote in a press release this week:

“Based on this extensive design research, we developed the brand DNA for the Shooting Brake. The conversion merges seamlessly with the Tesla base vehicle, whilst clearly communicating though form, design language and materials that this is a tailor-made Shooting Brake.” According to Van Roij, the essential elements of the theme that was chosen are its dynamic, bold profile with continuously flowing lines. “And of course we added a completely new sculpted rear-end, keeping the shoulders of the car alive, thus ensuring a bold stance.”

They released images of the design they are aiming for:

The vehicle was commissioned a year ago by Dutch collectioneur Floris de Raadt, but they plan to use it as a proof-of-concept to offer the modification to other Tesla owners.

They are on track to complete and unveil the vehicle in March. At that point, they plan to start taking orders.

Right now, they are only talking about a limited series production of 20 units planned, but it would still be one of the most ambitious body modifications done on a Tesla vehicle.

Electrek’s Take

Wagons, or estate cars, or shooting-brakes, are very popular in Europe, especially in markets like the UK and Germany, but there’s currently none with an all-electric powertrain.

As it turns out, the Model S’ design translates well into a sport wagon. We already have seen several Tesla Model S wagon renderings that were well-received and these new ones by Van Roij are particularly impressive in my opinion.

Now it’s interesting that two separate companies are simultaneously developing a Model S shooting brake. The other one being built in the UK was progressing nicely the last time we heard of it last month. They were aiming for the vehicle to be completed by the end of the year.

Therefore, we might soon get the chance to see not one but two third-party built Tesla Model S wagons.
