    Hi, I was wondering if anyone could tell me how (or if) I could connect a Playstation or Playstation 2 up to my iMac and play the games on its screen. I think I need an adapter or something? Sorry, I'm not great with stuff like this, haha. Thanks in advance for your help.

    You basically need a TV viewing / video-in adapter like the EyeTV in order to do this. The PS or PS2 acts like any other TV source under those conditions. If you do it full screen, it will probably look very grainy because of the sharpness of the iMac monitor, though. :(

    And many times, there is a deley in the video causing gaming to be horrible. Basically, go buy a TV or LCD.
