  Man changes his name to PlayStation 2
Updated 27 February 2002, 12.45

A gamer is so obsessed with PlayStation 2 that he's named himself after one.

Dan Holmes has legally changed his name to Mr PlayStation 2.

Mr PS2 plays his computer for more than four hours a day, and even takes it on holiday because he can't bear to be without it.

He wanted to marry a PS2

And so far, he's spent a whopping 7,000 on games.

Mr PS2, 29, from Banbury in Oxfordshire, told The Mirror that everyone teases him about how much he loves his PlayStation, so it seemed natural to change his name to be like one.

Mr PS2 said: "I joked about marrying a PlayStation and asked a few vicars if they would do the service. They didn't seem keen."
