playstation 2 usb ports
hey,

i own a ps2 (the later release - small one) and was just wondering about the usb ports in the front panel.

what can they be used for besides a multi tap and a fan? can other stuff like pen drives be connected to it?

thanks!

not too sure, but I'm pretty certain a usb keyboard and mouse can go in there.

Yup, I used a k/b when playing SOCOM. I think also a mouse can be used as a pointer rather than the controller.

I believe you can also get a USB headset.

No way! You can use a keyboard and mouse for all games?

I'd have loved keyboard support for NCAA 2002 - entering in every NCAA football teams' players' names with a controller was arduous.

so besides a a multitap, headset, mouse and a keyboard theres not much other stuff to connect to?

is it possible to link two ps2s together to play a 2 player game, instead of like split screen?

The links are through the network cards now, unlike the PS which had it's own link ports.

The only other thing not mentioned is the USB Eye Toy.

And the Multitap is through the controller ports.
