Explain why Japanese people were lined up around the block to purchase the revision? http://ps2.ign.com/news/28795.html
And the PSone is still going strong in Japan! it\'s so entrenched in japanese culture. March will kick of Square And Sony\'s big marketing push with big titles like Zone of the Enders, Final Fantasy X, Devil May cry, The bouncer (january) Onimusha, and may many great titles! sony realized that Japanese people just buy it for DVDs so far! I love defending the Ps2...

You do realize that Xbox will get the hell hacked out of it, and a version of Linux will be availible for it. Piracy will probably kill it. If they piracy scene is big on Xbox, I\'LL GET ONE. I will not buy ANY commercial games to support Microsoft. (they make money on the games, not the hard ware for a while because the hardware isn\'t theirs!)

you seem to be under the false impression that this is an xbox thread, and that anyone asked (or gives a ****) about your opinion of xbox.

Don\'t be a ****. Piracy is wrong, no matter what system it\'s on. I\'m not a Xbox supporter, probably won\'t be unless they impress me like Sony did in the 32 bit generation. But just because I don\'t like Microsoft dosen\'t give me the right to screw the developers of it\'s games. If you want Xbox games without actually supporting Microsoft.. buy them from a Pawn shop or other second hand shop.

oh, but it\'s still the best thing ever.  It\'s gonna take over one day, you just wait and see...(trying not to laugh).



Seems like Sony will be planning a little better for the next go round.  Maybe not rushing everything, getting good and numerous in-house developers who can push the hardware like Sega and Nintendo\'s in house developement teams.  

I\'m just glad to see that the media types aren\'t all full of crap.

More importently, perfecting the technology they created for the PS2.  Alot would have been solved if the game themselves enough time to balance out the PS2 hardware and dev tools.  I strongly suspect the PS3 will be a beast.

Piracy is wrong because it screws the developer - not the console maker.

Once again, we spit in the face of the developers because of the systems we hate.

Microsoft will be in the same situation as Sony for a while. They won\'t make money off the consoles, but the games. And no stuff inside the Xbox is MS property. it\'s from other companies. Screw oddworld! that is one company to pirate. Damn trators!

Yes check it again dude.
It just 6 lines.
The other part called the complete story tells nothing about it.It just repeats things we have depated before about and succesfully answered them.
It doesnt say a bit about gamers\' opinions etc.Just old news old subjects that are no longer valid as we have disgussed them before.

We see this:
Pow! Sony Gets Hit
 
PlayStation 2 was designed to conquer the computing world, starting with Japanese gamers. But its first fans are turning against the ballyhooed ‘box’
 
By George Wehrfritz and Kay Itoi
NEWSWEEK INTERNATIONAL
 
Dec. 18 issue — Gameplayers from all over Tokyo gathered recently to bash the machine Sony swore would change their lives—and yours too. PlayStation 2 was hyped as a magical device that would realize the promise of the Internet Age, playing games, CDs, DVDs, tapping the World Wide Web.


and we get a complete story(thats what the call it) that says nothing aboiut it.It only gives us supposed info about the PS2 not being very good.Ans some of it is BS.Biased Bull ****.

Well again I say check animal_mother1\'s link.

I saw PS2 I ve playied PS2 read about PS2 read others opinions about PS2 etc and I say PS2 is a great console.



     
How many of these people already own the PS2? Thanks to Famitsu.com for the shot.




 
Japanese Gamers Line Up for New PS2

December 8, 2000
