I agree. Even if half all PS2s were stored in a box in somesone's garage (which I don,t think is the case), you'd still have 40 millions + consoles around. I'm sure a great game could still sell 1 million + copies well into 2008.
By the way, any recommendation for good shooters (firt person) on the PS2?
I haven't found an appealing PS2 game since the last Ratchet and Clank game, and even those are easily beaten. I got my PS2 for innovative (at the time) games like SSX, R&C and GTAIII. Katamari Damacy was good for a few hours.
Everything since then has just bored me, so I got a Wii. It took me 10 hours to beat the first dungeon in Zelda alone....needless to say my PS2 is to be retired.
I'm not a Nintendo fanboy. A few weeks ago I rented a GameCube and some games (Super Mario Sunshine was one) and kicked myself for missing out on Nintendo's offerings the last two years.
