The iLink or whatever.
Connect multiple PS2s together to play certain games "in-house" on different TV's.

Only like, 5 games supported it though. (Armored Core, etc).
Pretty sure, at least. Haven't owned a PS2 in a good 3 years.

It's called S400 or iLink, and is Sony's adaption of Firewire.

Only earlier PS2's have the firewire port. Your PS2 is a newer one where Sony omitted the 1394 port
