For those who don't yet own a PS3, it's nice to know that Sony intends to continue fully supporting the PS2 console in 2010.
Sony is seeking to emphasize that the PlayStation 2 has an extensive game library in comparison to the Nintendo Wii.
Speaking to GamePro.com (linked above) in a recent interview, Sony's Director of Hardware Marketing John Koller
has stated the following, to quote:
"Yes, we have a very firm stance, and we're going to continue to support the PlayStation 2 wholeheartedly. The PS2 obviously had a price drop this year, which gets forgotten because of the PS3 noise, but it's still selling exceedingly well.
It's a new demographic, a consumer that's maybe a "last gamer" or a consumer that's new to gaming. With this economy, coming in at $99, a lot of these consumers are choosing between a PlayStation 2 and a Wii, and you're looking at a PS2, which is $99 and carries 2000 games."
