Following the PlayStation, Nintendo 64, PC Engine / TurboGrafx-16, NES, SNES, GameCube, and Game Boy & Virtual Boy Anthologies, Geeks-Line is now proud to present the PlayStation 2 Tetralogy!

Six years after the PlayStation tidal wave, the end of the millennium was marked by the release of an extraordinary console with a monolithic aesthetic worthy of Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey and the finest high-tech parts.

While the PlayStation had paved the way to 3D, the PlayStation 2 demonstrated that this bold, new direction was the future for video games.
