The PS2 Lives!

100°
352w ago - The Greatest Generation looks forward to its golden years.

Postpone the decorative-coffin-pillow shopping and drop out of your creative-epitaph writing classes; the old PS2 ain't dead. Despite the prognoses of many well-meaning analysts, the little console that helped you ring in the new millennium seven years ago may just make it through 2008. The sharp increase in both gas prices and the speed at which our female pop superstars age may tell us that we're living in a far different world than the year 2000, but one fact remains: Like all good things worth bingeing on, the PS2 is cheap and plentiful.

While the PS2 does lack the "oomph" of the new generation of consoles, when looking at the system's future release list, there's something to be said about the active life of seniors. The groundbreaking, blockbuster games of tomorrow, with their accompanying Internet arguments already going strong, obviously won't grace the meager PS2. However, the past few months have seen a few modestly awesome titles hit the little black box, and the next couple of months will see a few more. So don't go overboard and carve your old PS2 into a crudely fashioned Wii stand or take it out to the shooting range to see what its insides look like; the old boy could make it to next Christmas.

Before this celebration...

Splinter Cell: Conviction PS3 dated?

50°
352w ago - The previously 360 and PC-only Splinter Cell Conviction is now also set for a simultaneous release on PS3, according major UK retailer GAME.

The site also pens the game to release on all three formats on April 1, despite previous announcements only stating a vague early 2008 release.

As we all know, retailers have a tendency to let slip on things publishers don't always want revealing. Just look at Konami's latest announcement of which first word came from a very similar posting.

However, Ubisoft UK has told CVG that neither a PS3 version of Conviction, or any proposed release date, have been confirmed by the publisher.

We knew that though, that's why we called. We'll keep the sniffer dogs out on this one...
 

Sony Denies PS3 Price Drop

50°
352w ago - At CES this year, Kaz Hirai, the President of Sony Computer Entertainment, stated that the PlayStation 3 was going to be profitable in 2008; unlike the huge losses it made for Sony in 2007.

After Hirai's statement the production costs were reported to be cut in half from the high $800 production costs down to $400 for each unit. Due to this news it sounded unlikely that the price was going to be cut again. Rumors were beginning to circulate that said the price was going to be cut to $299 in late January.

Combining the statement of Kaz Hirai and the $400 production costs, it doesn't really seem to increase the chance of a price cut so early in the year. That is probably why Sony confirmed to Bloomberg that they have no plans to cut the price of the PlayStation 3 in Japan, North America or Europe. Sorry for the people waiting for the PS3 to drop another $100, but it probably won't happen any time soon.

Stay tuned!
