Activision Anthology for PS2 - What color disc?

Hey all. I just purchases a PS2 system (for $4.28), and was wondering what color disc Activison Anthology for PS2 is. I ask this because my PS2 only plays Silver Discs. Any Help? Thanks!

You bought a PS2 for 4 bucks that only plays silver discs?

Sounds like the laser is bad - send it to Sony and they'll fix it for free.

Trigger, I would, but the Warranty sticker has been removed, so they won't do squat about it.

are you sure? I returned one without a warranty sticker and they fixed it right up.

Well, I totally forgot to clean this system out. So I opened it up, and blew all the dust out. I then went ahead and swabbed the laser, and lo and behold, the PS2 works fine. This is now my 5th or 6th system I have (all the rest were free), however, this is the only one that cleaning the laser actually worked. Hmm...

P.S. Weap, thanks!

Probably because you paid $4.25 more than all the rest

Well, to be fair, he bought one that was already broken; I guess he didn't want to leave anything to chance.

Flash, I wouldn't call spending $4.28 really buying a system (Mine also came with a Dual Shock controller, which is worth atleast $20 used).

Yesterday, I went out and picked up a used Memory Card, GTA III, and Onimusha (Played it for Xbox a few years back) for $25. I havn't yet tried GTA III, but was playing Onimusha for a few hours (In between Mario Golf). Now I only have 4-5 more games to get (Vice City, Activision Anthology, Jak and Dexter), and I prob. won't buy any more PS2 games at all

Oops, spoke to soon. The real reason I would EVER buy a PS2 (which would be with a 3 year warranty) would be for Castlevania. So Im happy with my $4 purchase, and since there are Soooooooooo many websites and FAQS with 'How to Fix PS2s', it was a cake walk.
