    For sale, my holy grail in Playstation. A Playstation 2 TOOL
    This is what developers used for the playstation 2 games. This is the blue 15000A version, with analizer kit. This is a different one then the 10000A kit. Since i sold almost everything from my Playstation collection, i let this one go aswell.
    It is in good working condition, only a little crack on top, but has been glued well, and hardly to see.
    I dont think it needs any more explaning on this page.

    Price: SOLD
    Payment with paypal, ship world wide.
    Pick up is possible in Amsterdam.

    The best development kit ever made, IMHO.
    I have one and I would purchase this too in a heartbeat, if it was in North America...

    My choice depends on if there's anything on it, how long it will take until someone else buys it, and huge amounts of time.
    I also heard that it's required to make PS2 games, is that true?
    What can it do?

    The TOOL is the official Sony PS2 development system - it is possible to write code for the PS2 without using it, but it's the system that all the official software tools assume you will be using.

    What makes that particular one special is that it's the version with execution profiling hardware in it - which was used by the developers of the final generation of PS2 games to squeeze every last bit of performance out of the system. They are also quite rare because they came out at the end of the PS2 system lifecycle, were expensive and were typically only used for optimization - so a studio might have a larget number of regular (DTL-T10000H) TOOLs, but only 1 or 2 of the performance analyzer ones.

    They are a cool color too.

    Sounds great!
    I got another computer that has an emulator but it’s so slow on what I was working on.

    So what advantages does this have over a normal ps2? I'm wanted to buy this, but never got an answer.
    I will not be doing any coding or anything like that

    If you don't code, then the advantages over a normal ps2 are none whatsoever.

    It's (part of the) development toolkit. With the basic DTL-T10000(H) TOOL, you can test and debug the PlayStation 2 software that you develop.
    This was a DTL-T15000, which is a performance analyzer. With it, the Sony-licensees were also able to monitor the loads on various components of the system during runtime, which was necessary for streamlining the software for performance.

    If you are a collector, you can collect these extremely rare consoles (at least, the T15000 sets are seemingly very rare).
    If you are a programmer, you can use them for their original purposes.
    If you are a gamer who isn't going for either of the above - you're just wasting your money. They were originally not designed to boot discs directly (you don't burn discs during development) and spare parts for these consoles are also quite hard to come by.

    Due to their age (plastic gets brittle) and great weight, the more they change hands, the greater the risk of damage that they incur during transportation.
    But this is the life of a 20-year old console.

    On a side note, unlike what the name of the DebugStation (DEX, also known as the TEST) says, it has no debugging capabilities. Developers used the TOOL to debug.
