I know, my cat tried to put a disc in my ps2 the other day and he got stuck. I wish he could put the dics in by himself but sadly i have to help him. Helping my cat play ps2 always results in a embarassing defeat :'(

Wow that's odd. My cat prefers fighting games.

Hamsters are cool, I bet they'd love to play that hamtaro game for GBA

Ahh, there's no way a ps2 could be cat friendly. They don't see as many colors as a human does and they cannot see fine detail like text on the screen.

Maybe you don't realise it, but the name is what gets it to sell more units. C'mon, you think the "launch games" were SOOO GOOD to make ps2 sell as much as it did during launch? Sorry, but no......name sells, its common fact. Now if it was the same thing as it is, and was made by ZONY and called PLAYLAND 2, you think it would sell as much?

Well, I'm a pragmatist; I don't care about the name, I only care about the price and the quality.

Well, I'm like you, but you cannot just dismiss the fact that people buy stuff due to the name associated with it. I hate playstation, but i own one, why, cuz i like some games available for it. But I can name 98% of people who bought it, just because its a "playstation".........but those are just mindless fanboys. Flame away fanboys......not like its going to help any of you.


If more people where like you and me, and thought about QUALITY, i think more xboxs and gamecubes would have been sold. But sadly, thats not the case.

Its "kiDDy" DAMMIT! Well the same can be said about any other game, wow, guess ps2 is KIDDY too, with its crash nitro kart, and its spyro games, and its ratchet and clank....etc etc, get my point? Its a matter of opinion.....the games look is not what makes it kiddy, which most of you feel it does, its what the games theme and target goes for. Some even go to the limits as n64 and GC games are kiddy due to its color scheme, which is just stupid. Guess FFX or FFX-2 is JUST as kiddy in that aspect, with its flashy colors and all.

So you're saying because of its name, PS2 was dominate? Not because it had a DVD player...? Not the fact it had the ability to play PSX games...? The fact PSX was a household name (i.e. dominating the market)? Lets forget the fact that all the major game companies were throwing all their best games at PS2. So because someone at Sony was like "Hey lets just call it Playstation, and next one.... PLAYSTATION 2" someone went "BRILLANT". ? I'll you wut, as long my Zony Playland 2 plays my PLX games, I don't care what they call it. Seriously though, you are right, the name did sell, BUT it was NOT by far the driving force. During the first year of the PS2 I was working at what you could call a video game shop in the ghetto. I was selling PS2s like hotcakes, you know why? Sony took a great idea, and made it even better. What sold the PS2 was the fact it was three things in one. DVD player + PS2 + a PSX. You're getting 3 different functions for the price of a Gamecube that only has one, or an XBOX that had two. Hell people don't even prounce Playstation anymore, they merely say PS2. That's besides the point though. Thanks the PSX's domination and veriety of games for it, playing PSX games on the PS2 was a big-deal to a lot of low-income budge it people who wanted something cost efficient, yet state of the art, and they got that with the PS2.

So what you're saying is because a PS2 is "inferior" in its abilities, compared to the XBOX and GameCube, its not quality? Why? Hows the DVDless- GameCube, or the bullet-proof XBOX better, and why? Isn't the "quality" not in the hardware but in the games? Because, really that's why PS2 IS the best.

True. But during the next gen wars (Saturn/PSX/N64) Nintendo was the OOPS company of that time (Surprising its not SEGA, isn't it?) because they made four major mistakes:

1.) Arrogance, "We don't need you Square.", then "We don't need you."
2.) Selective targeting... "Lets market it towards the children..... ONLY."
3.) Cartridges.
4.) Because of 3, the inablity to play SNES cartridges. (Sony learned from this.)

Although they released some mature games during their dying year/months (Conker, RE2 etc. etc.) they paid the price.

So like PSX being what it was, Nintendo's N64 being what is was... a children's gaming company, that's what the public image of the GameCube was, a next generation console tailored towards children. In my opinion, GameCube is kiddy, all you gotta do is look at the majority of the games, GameCube got lucky with their two RE games, and Metriod Prime wasn't kiddy either... but overall, its pretty much kiddy/port console. (I'm not counting Bloody Roar/SC2 and other games of that nature since they're all available for all systems. I'm talking system exculsive.)
