By a "kids first console" do you mean they are now going to target it at younger children? if so I'd be interested in more info' on that angle!

I heard they are making Rock Band for PS2.

 

Apart from that they are making less and less for them now. I mean there is still Lego Indiana Jones, Lego Batman, Ghostbusters, Alone In The Dark, Manhunt 2, Mercenaries 2, Wild Arms 5 and loads of other stuff. (lots of RPG's)

Imagine Shenmue but with an 18 certificate, less emphasis on examining stuff and less detail on the environments. However, add a fantastic set of characters, an incredibly solid storyline and brilliant fighting engine and then you have Yakuza. It starts very slow and at first i nearly stopped but let the story kick off and you will be absolutely hooked.

i think the ps2 has many more games to look forward to , as developers of the psp games e.g R&C size matters and silent hill - origins, seem to like the move over to ps2 console.I wouldnt be surprised to see a lot more in the future.

I dont know about anyone else but I cant stand playing PS2 games now (with the exception of Buzz)

 

They look so crap compared to my PS3 games (apart from Haze.. **bleep** happened there). When I bought a 40GB ps3 I was worried that I made the wrong decision and should have gotten at 60GB of ebay so I could play my PS2 games but ever since I got the PS3 i havent played a PS2 game once, lol

 

But yeah the PS2 sells incredibly well (more than the 360 and PS3) so it only makes sense for developers to keep releasing games for it so them and Sony can keep the cash rolling in... :P

I got the 60Gb one so i've been playing PS2 games on that. The Metal Gears and GTA:San Andreas being the main ones.
But like Doc Kung mentioned.....Ghostbusters!

Well, despite owning a PS3 I decided to purchase a PlayStation and PlayStation 2 pre-owned.

 

I got the PlayStation for £4.99 in GameStation and I'd already bought Metal Gear Solid on eBay for £19.99.

 

I got the PlayStation 2 (original model, I don't like the Slimline one) for £49.99 in Blockbuster with Tekken 5, Gran Turismo 4, Metal Gear Solid 2, Metal Gear Solid 3, Burnout 3: Takedown, and PES 6.

 

The best thing for me is that I'd kept my official blue "feet" vertical stand from my now long gone PS2 I got back at launch, so my pre-owned PS2 is using it proudly. It's quite odd seeing all three PlayStation's in a row, set up and ready to use. Even though my PS3 is 60GB I prefer playing games on the machine they were developed for ... I just can't be bothered checking up a list for "known issues", etc. I also picked up God of War for £8.99 on eBay, which came this morning and I have to say I am embarrassed I missed this title first time around.

 

The PlayStation 2 appears to have a remarkable amount of life left in it yet.  And some of the games like Tekken 5, Gran Turismo 4, and God of War look absolutely superb even today.

May i suggest buying 'GUN' for your new PS2. In my opinion, this game has to be owned by everyone. The graphics are awesome, and the gameplay is amazing. And you can pick it up off eBay for a few quid!

Yakuza 2 is released in september, and I look forward to play it very much.

 

Persona 4 is also a title that I might buy, if it's released in Europe, and if that happens, it probably won't happen until next year some time.

Yup, the PS2 is still living. However, the PS1 is dead.
