    This is pretty strange. A month or more ago my friend told me about how his PS2 suddenly stopped playing EA Sports games. He could still play everything else just fine. So of course he jinxed my PS2, because this past weekend I discovered that I could no longer play Madden 2001, NBA Live or SSX. When I put in these games it would come up with a "disc error". All my other games still play fine.

    Has anybody else experience this? Is this a known glitch of the PS2?

    The PS2 has a major problem reading the "blue bottomed" discs after some time. Just go to the Gamesfaqs.com forum for PS2 and you'll see what I mean. Most EA sports games are "blue bottomed" and that may be the problem. I read that you can open up your PS2 and clean the lens with a Q-tip and it seems to fix the problem. I ran into that problem myself but I just got a new PS2 with my replacement plan. Hope this info helps.
