How much longer do you the gamers think the PS2 will last?
some of the recent threads concerning what seems to be an unfortunate sloow death for the GC got me wondering how long the PS2 may actually last in the marketplace.
The question isnt really about how long Sony will keep selling the PS2 it seems they will continue to sell it for at least 3 more years.
The question at hand is how long do YOU THE GAMERS think it will be a viable platform? 1 more year? 2 more years? more?
I think there will be quality games released for it for at least the next 2 years then afterward comes the cheaply made and developed "shovelware" just like what happened in the last years of the PSone.
I guess what it comes down to is when the last batch of up-to-date sports games come out for a system doesnt it? I mean that usually (not always) marks when the system ends it lifecycle on the market at least a popular well supported "mainstream" system anyways there are always exceptions of course.
Then their are the many unseen factors such as:
how quickly the casual gamers and the rest of us adapt the next-gen systems.
How many developers can actually afford to jump into making nothing but next-gen games etc.
I think the PS2 may last longer than many expect it to.
