The PS2, much like the Madden franchise, refuses to die. Only unlike with Madden, its a good thing! Furthermore the PS2 has just been given a nice price cut to $99 USD, which coupled with music games and JRPGs still coming out for the console will ensure many more years of its existence.
However Sony believes the PS2 will be the gateway to owning a PS3. John Koller, Director for Hardware Marketing at Sony said to Ars Technica that they’ve "found that almost 80 percent of PlayStation 3 owners either currently own or have in the past owned a PlayStation 2, so that statistic on its own speaks volumes". That’s some hardcore deductive power right there guys!
I’m sorry but I dont see a $99 console bought to play Guitar Hero making people buy a $400 dollar PS3. Just as much as I dont see soccer moms who bought the Wii to play Wii Fit ‘graduating’ to an Xbox 360, as Microsoft has stated in the past. Mr. Koller, that most PS3 owners had a PS2 does not mean most PS2 owners will buy a PS3. Just as much as me making a bitter Playstation post does not mean all my Playstation posts are bit… ok I’ll give you that one.
