PlayStation 2 is Dead According to UK Gaming Industry Leaders

Sponsored Links
318w ago - Today MCV (linked above) has published a number of quotes from UK industry leaders who all reach the same conclusion - the PS2 is standing on its last legs and is effectively dead.

The MD of MasterSonic noted that the PS2 market has been virtually killed overnight, while a major international publisher noted this will be the last Christmas for the PS2 and the company won't support it next year.

To quote: MD of Mastertonic Andy Payne - whose Blast label has enjoyed impressive sales during the PS2's twilight years - believes the system is on its last legs, thanks to limited space on the High Street.

He told MCV: "The PS2 market has been virtually killed overnight. There's been no real run-off like with the PSOne, and that's because retail just does not have the space."

Do you still have a PlayStation 2, and if so do you still play it? Feel free to comment below!

The PS2 is a great console, and the gamers surely will play ps2 games years and years. I have a PS1 and often play ps1 games, so with my ps2 the same will happen.

I am a casual gamer, so the Playstation 2 offers the widest selection of entertainment with the lowest cost. I prefer to live in realm of gaming two years later than everyone else anyway.
