Well, we are already in the middle of this gen and I'm still at the sideline. I'm NOT buying the expensive PS3 so that I can play a few games that interest me (MGS4, FF XIII, GOW 3) and with multiplatforms looking better on another console.
I'm also NOT buying the Xbox 360 with its despicable RRoD curse (Jasper hasn't been proven, yet and screw the 3 year warranty).
Finally, the Wii isn't for me (did that rhyme?).
So, that leaves me with my BIG OLD FAT PS2. Been with me since 2003 and STILL alive and kicking. Lots of unfinished games, but what's this? More games coming for the PS2 (Devil Summoner 2, Guilty Gear Accent Core Plus, Naruto Ultimate Ninja 4)?
Although these games may not be much to brag about but still it's something to take note that there are publishers that keep bringing more games to this console.
Yes, you can say that I'm missing all the fun of the current gen, but that happens when you got a tight budget and a world in recession looming over you. All this translates into a feeling of disappointment towards the current gen.
I hope Sony and MS don't repeat their mistakes in the NEXT-GEN. Backward Compatibility and NO defective hardware, PLEASE. 8)
In the mean time, here comes Fatty PS2 to the rescue! I'll bow to the KING of last gen and admire its longevity (entering it's ninth year).
LONG LIVE PS2! Let MORE games come to you! (did that rhyme?)
@Outrider_Dashh Yeah, lets just hope that NEXT-GEN will be better than this one. BTW, looks like we're both Dr. Doom (coolest villain of all time) fans. ;)
I totally agree with you. Usually I get a new system a year after its been out (when all the bugs are worked out), but the rush to get the 360 out into the market when it was not ready & the ps3 expense\multiple versions of the system have made it hard to actually consider buying a system. Nintendo sold its video game soul to the casual gamer, which is fine if you still make the hard core games. The Wii is just 50% gimmick + 50% Gamecube. All hail the PS2. They might not make the best games for it anymore (although there have been a few jems since the ps3 came out) but at least Sony hasn't left you stranded like MS & Nintendo did. I have been hunting down the best games for PS2 since you can get them all cheap at gamestop used, & I some how missed them the first time around.
