Sony is stopping ps2 production!!!?
two things I ask.
1. Please do not use all capital letters
2. Please spell check before posting.
Yes. Sony recently stated PS2 production would end at their fiscal year's end, which is in the fall. I have no sources because this is extremely recent, and I guess you could just call sony at (800) 345-7669 and ask.
And yes, cell text is not a good way to get attention, it will only get you the wrong kind..
Well, this sucks. I really hoped that such a successful console would be produced for a little bit longer. Especially that they launched a new model not that long ago. Too bad.
Well ffgriver, with all due respect, i'd say ps2 has lasted long enough. It has surpassed xbox and gamecube and id say a ways into the "3rd" gen of consoles. Although it would be nice to see it last longer. I would have to say it did an amazing job of lasting and its time has come.

still there are quite a lot of ps2s circulating on second-hand market. it's not a big problem to get one in case your console fails. for now, that is.
i perceive ps2 as the most successful console ever. not only because of the games, but also because of the really well-designed architecture, that proved its worth overtime.
psx games are doing good - there are lots of emulators around. sony is not planning to allow you play your ps2 games for free on ps3 anymore.
will future ps3 model will able to play psx ps2 games !!!
if not what will hapen to these so many ps2,psx games
i suspect that sony is worried that ps2 is still standing and might hold back ps3.
bleh. Nothing beats playing ps1 games like the original console.
being able to fast-forward the boring parts (especially gf animations in ff8) on the emulator definitely beats any advantage the ps1 has, even if playing games on original console "feels" better (it does).
