    You mean like Nintendo did with Philips and the whole Hotel Mario and (up until Spirit Tracks was shitted out) the worst trio of Zelda games made?

    There is also the whole Sony fucked up by not getting the Wii tech before Nintendo thing too. It's the business world, and with all of the big three there were missed opportunities to put one of the other out of their hair.

    Need help? Just ask (blank friend requests will always be ignored)

    Goodbye first black friend, many many gaming memories to be had, a lovely console for people never interested in online play, I'll never forget the first time I saw you, at my friends house as he played The Bouncer!

    Anytime a new game that I wanted came out I always went for the PS2 version. Good times.

    Well the PS2 may be reaching the end of it's retail life cycle, but it, and it's influence, will never die. I can think of no more proper send off....



    Thanks for the memories, and for the absolute greatness.

    It's such a shock that the system really lasted so long, especially with the PS3 casting shadows over it. Even more so, it's surprising that some retailers go as far as to still sell the games. Just today i saw about 3 for sale at Walmart new. But anyways, it was a great system and I have no intention of getting rid of the slim one i own

    I still have my PS2 and I have no intention of getting rid of it. It's my only way to play the Tenchu and Onimusha games, with Onimusha in particular - I still can't believe that Capcom seemingly have no interest in revisiting this awesome series.

    And I still have my copy of MGS3: Subsistence, signed by Michael Bell (The Fear)!

    Have my dual slims, both American (Silver) and Japanese (White). Plus I still have my original launch PS2. Never got rid of it, too much nostalgia value. And it still works, only replaced the lens once, after 1000's upon 1000's of hours of gameplay.

    Oh my god the times I had on this system. Man so many great games that time and many of em was fun to play. The RPGs especially to me was an blast to play. Still to this day I'm waiting for FF 12 and the Everquest Champions series hitting the PSN for digital purchase so I can play em again and for giggles. This system to me had an longer life cycle than it should but still very impressive of Sony of supporting it for over the 10 years they did promised.

    It's sad to see the PS2 finally being put down. I remember almost selling it when I got my PS3. Phew!
