The keyboard, if attached, will start the system in "computer" mode with Atari Basic running.  If you start it without the keyboard attached, it then acts as a game machine only and Missile Command starts up instead.  It's kinda nifty, if you as me.  :)

The first post was getting way too big, so I broke two systems out of it and gave them separate posts.  Not sure what would have happened had the first post taken the entire page or become larger than the first page.

Yes it is.  It adds music channels to the console and also adds more controller ports should one want to play 4-player games.

And here is my latest addition.  I was inspired by the video posted by Dreamcast Gamer to get one of these.  They are indeed cheap to collect for.  :)

Cool stuff.
There's a couple there I wouldn't mind checking out myself. Particularly Rygar and Silpheed.
I love how compact the slim PS2 is.
GTA Vice City is a must!

Yes, I was quite surprised to see how small the console is!  I'm going to skin it to hide the scratches on the shiny surface.  Rygar and Silpheed both have excellent ratings on multiple sites.  I'll have to check out GTA Vice City.  :)

Think of it as a parallel to the universe...ever expanding.  :)

Here is a little something that I got that is not a game but is still game related:

In case I hadn't commented about your PS2 purchase somewhere else, I'm happy to see that you've acquired a PS2. The Xbox and PS2 consoles are where I think the transition to current-gen was set in motion: Since then, console gaming has sort of been developing along the same lines. If you decide to really dig into the PS2 library, which is immense, I would love to send some recommendations your way. You'd probably do well to pick up the Silent Hill games, especially SH2 and 3, and possibly some Fatal Frame games. I'm just a little late in the year to make the Halloween tie-in, but they're fantastic to play year-round and really set the tone for what the PS2 was capable of in its prime. The PS2 was home to some great RPGs, too. You've got Kingdom Hearts already, but check out Final Fantasy X, Dragon Quest VIII, and games from the Persona, Suikoden, and Xenosaga series.

The PS2 had many successful franchises that spawned several sequels. Jak & Daxter, Ratchet & Clank, Grand Theft Auto, God of War, Metal Gear Solid, Sly Cooper, Onimusha, and Devil May Cry are all important franchises that helped push the PS2 to the forefront. And, last but not least, I don't think I could make a list of PS2 recommendations without mentioning Shadow of the Colossus and Okami, which are purely amazing and need to be played at least once. Both games are routinely mentioned among the best games for the console. Happy collecting!

Thanks Wyldephang.  The PS2 has a humongous library not only because of its games but also because it can play PS1 games!  I never had either console, so it has been cool to get it now and be able to play games from both systems using the one console.  I also like how small the Slim is!
