Sony: Full PlayStation 2 Support Will Continue in 2010

200°
267w ago - 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."

Also following the firmware update last week, minis now join the fun on PS3, so you can now enjoy the majority of our minis on both formats.

Next week we're updating the store on Tuesday the 22nd of December, and then that's it for the holidays - normal service will resume from Thursday the 7th of January.

Finally, as a personal Christmas gift to some of you lucky, lucky readers, I have some codes I'll be giving out over the next week - there is no competition to enter - all I'll be doing is scouring your comments and giving codes out to those who have left constructive / commendable feedback (think of this as a 'letter of the week' type deal, except it's more 'comments of the week').
