    "Ten years ago today, the PlayStation 2 launched in Japan. That makes the PS2 ten years old. After launching worldwide, the console has gone on to sell over 140 million units globally, making it the best selling home console. Ten years in, the console is still alive and kicking. There are still video games being released on it!"


    I still have one and it's working like a charm! :)
    How's yours?

    I never got a ps2 I was to busy with my xbox but I did get a ps3 and I am liking it way more then the 360.

    Sony really knows how to make a good/long lasting video game systems. Their support sucks but I can deal with that.

    Sony did much better than microsoft back with ps2. But now with 360 and ps3, clearly microsoft stepped up to have the better console.

    I devoted a solid month or two of my life to that game. I went for the '95 (I think) Mitsubishi 3000GT. I recently challenged a friend to a MEMORY CARD BATTLE!!!! We agreed, but then we both had the issue of finding the memory card LOL

    PS3 is a better machine. Microsoft did a better marketing job, that and they secured exclusives for some really bad ass games. Xbox Live is better than PSN, and some former Playstation exclusive are now on 360 also.

    Yea for sure I can agree with that, but that basically proves my point lol. XBL is a huge thing for many gamers as well. Either way, I was thinking of getting a ps3 to go with it...

    I don't see the ps3 having the same long term success as the ps2 though.

    Wow i cant believe its been that long since I have my ps2 lol

    But nowadays I stick with my 360/ps3. I do think the ps3 is a better system but I just love my xbox and my xbox live.

    Oh I can't believe its been that long! I remember getting my PS2 like 7 years ago...
    Still have it! Don't play too much but my brothers play on it a looooot, they got like 6 new games for it 6 months ago. They're playing Star Wars Battlefront 2 right now, but my favorite is Final Fantasy 13. Still haven't beaten it yet!
