    ....shut up Kickback :p 

    Yeah, I had a 20% off coupon from work that was about to expire. I was considering picking up a 360, but as I looked at both side by side I began to think of the games I would actually play.

    While both systems don't have all that many games that catch my interest, between price and games, the PS2 won out. (in spite of my immense hatred for the company which makes it).

    So I purchased one. Thus far I have Megaman X7 and Soul Calibur 3. Yes I know X7 sucks, but I am a big fan of Megaman, so I've still played it through. God I hate Axle.


    But on the subect of the PS2 its self. I'm still trying to find a good wireless controller, and a remote compatible with the slimline PS2. The wii's remote has made me lazy.

    It may be a bit late in the generation for the PS2, but that I think is the best time to pick up your second choice of system as the games themselves are very cheap now, and (likely due in part to the failure of the PS3) 3rd parties are still putting out games for the PS2 in spite of being a good year into the next gen.

    It certainly isn't replacing my Wii, but it's giving me something to do until Brawl comes out.



    again....shut up Kickback.

    You should have saved face and got the 360.

    The PS3 is a failure. A FAILURE.

    You mean PS2, right?

    I loved the PS2. Still a fun system. I still have to go back and beat a few games on it.

    I'm not a Sony defender, but that's due to Sony themselves making it a mission to still support the PS2 for a while, whereas Nintendo and Microsoft instantly abandoned their old systems completely. Sony is at LEAST smart enough to know that the PS2 still has an audience.

    My Niece and Nephew got a PS2 for Christmas today (my old one). They were happy to get it, and my niece loved the Strawberry Shortcake game she got with it, and my Nephew loved the Transformer Armada game he got.

    Nintendo did the same thing with the transition from the NES to the SNES, as well as the GBA to the DS(and a few other times here and there). I'm pretty sure the reason they dropped the GC was simply due to how poorly it was doing(bottom of the barrel, nowhere near the ps2, xbox, or even the ps3 currently). Hell, between the SNES and the Wii, the gameboy was the only thing supporting the company.

    As far as the PS3 being a failure is concerned, I'll keep on playing my failure of a PS3 and it's tons of games that I don't have the time to play all at once, while my 360 collects dust and the Wii never enters my home.

    (damn I get so sick of the "ZOMG PS3 FAILZ!" crap, why did it even need to come up in a discussion about the ps2?)

    Well, I meant people who were going to buy a new console.

    I heart the Dreamcast and all, but some things y'just gotta let go.
