    Dejavu, Review of PS2, very similar to that of the PS3


    Salon.com Technology | Don't buy that PlayStation




    Interesting review of the PS2. Pretty much says the exact same thing as people are saying about the PS3 today, along with the same predictions of flopping in favor of another console (Dreamcast and upcoming X-Box).

    A few others saying about the same thing.

    Sony PS2 has limited lifespan | Geek.com






    Gran Turismo 2000 (PS2) - MegaGames console




    And since we all know how the PS2 turned out (slaughtering the XBox and still beating the 360), I'd say it's way too early to count the PS3 out.

    PS2 was only $300 though, the same price as the Sega CD was... PS3 is far far far less of a bargin.

    History isn't going to automatically repeat itself here.

    at 600 dollars how is the Ps3 not a bargain, plus with the price of inflation, is it really that far offline?

    here is a list with prices of the video game system prices with inflation inluded, but remember this, both the PS3 and 360 have extras to be considered (blu ray playback, media extender and such).

    PS3 is comparable to it's competitors though, and PS2 was a leap forward(DVD capablity). In Japan people were buying PS2s because they were budget DVD players. That advantage lasted a very short time for the PS3.

    Not going to get into the Blu-Ray stuff, as forcing you into one side of a format war without any choice isn't all that great.

    Personally I would love to pick up a $200-$300 PS3 one day, play a bunch of the nice PS2 titles I missed and whatever else finally came out for the PS3 that DOES make it worth buying, since sales and whatnot show there isn't enough to warrant a purchase right now for anyone but fringe Blu Ray fans and impatient gamers. Hardcore Blu Ray fans are more likely to buy standalone players, and patient gamers are waiting until there is more software for the PS3.

    The way things are now, I will likely have a 2nd 360 in my household before a PS3, since thanks to how nice Xbox Live is, it will get far more use than another DVD player, HD or otherwise.

    DVD playback was needed for Game play as well as movies. Blu ray playback is needed for movies as well as games. People in america are buying the Ps3 as a Bluray player right now, and I dont see that advantage lasting long as cheaper players will come out, and Ps3 sales I believe will pick up with more software.

    I believe Live is great, but I am really really interested in what Home can do for the Ps3-hopefully Sony dosent make it a cheap knock off!
    also starting tommorow my Ps3 is going to get some serious gaming use...I already have MLB 07 the show and play that like crazy, but Rainbow Six vegas comes out tommorow along with the darkness, cant wait!

    I see similarities in competition.

    Dreamcast was out before the PS2 and cheaper. Also PS1 continued to outsell both for over a year.
    Not unlike now, just substitute 360 for Dreamcast. PS2 outsells both 360 and PS3, just like PS1 outsold Dreamcast and PS2 for the first year.

    PS2 was only $300 though, the same price as the Sega CD was...
    Sega CD was long since dead by this point and replaced by Saturn and then Dreamcast. Did you mean Dreamcast? If so, it wasn't $300 when PS2 was released, it was down to $150 at that point, as Sega had cut the price in order to fend off the release of the PS2.

    And Live isn't going to make/break the 360 in the console wars, after all, it didn't help Xbox vault to the top.
