Games "We've joked about its refusal to die before, but today, finally, the console begins its march into the history books. Having sold over 150 million units since its release in 2000, the PlayStation 2 has today ceased shipping to Japanese retailers, meaning once remaining stock is gone, it's gone. The console was first released in Japan on March 4, 2000, and in those twelve years has become - by a longshot - the biggest-selling home video game console of all time." I should play Shadow of the Colossus again.

DC had online, DC had VGA output, DC had Shenmue. Even Xbox 1 and Gamecube were better products than PS2.


The VGA output was fantastic at the time, playing the games on a monitor was so much crisper than on a TV. It was also a boon for people with limited space (like me and everybody else in a cramped college dorm room) who could share one monitor between a PC and the Dreamcast.
