RIP Playstation 2.

This is a sign that Sony is freeing up capacity for Playstation 4.

Indeed.
I already feel nostalgic for my Silver PS2.

I don't have the PS2 itself, but I still have the blue box that my first PHAT PS2 came in when I got it for Christmas in 2002...

I remember when i got my PS2. I had came back from school when i was 5 and it was in my room already set up, so i popped in a PS1 game thinking the graphics would be PS2 quality.

It's spirit will dwell in ps4 I hope.

I'll never forget all the good times I had on my ps2. My early years would have not even been half as good if I didn't get one.

Rip indeed. This game spawned many classics and will be remember for it's accessibility and exclusives. Looking at the positives, however, this may imply the PS4 announcement is on the horizon. I'm looking at mine right now, I can see the GRAND THEFT AUTO trilogy, Silent Hill games, ICO; the PS2 had an amazing library.

No matter how long the timeline, at some point, any given thing comes to a stop.
The sony playstation 2 was, and probably always will be the best console I've ever owned. I'm proud to have been a part of the greatest gaming legacy of all time.

Done so much right for so many years. Rest now big guy.

Greatest gaming legacy, lol. It's a freaking games console. They are ceasing production. That's it!
