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.

The Dreamcast is awesome. A huge improvement over the Saturn. I wouldn't say it was awesome just because of the hardware though, it had some of the best games and definitely the most fun and unique games I have ever played on any console.

Ya, I think the Dreamcast was the last console released that actually had a soul. Everything that came after it has been pretty much garbage. The one saving grace of the last gen has been the downloadable titles, which is where most of the fun could be had. That is, unless you REALLY like military shooters and rehashed shit ;)

I literally bought a used Dreamcast this week to play Shenmue and Shenmue 2. It's bloody awesome!! A shop in my town still sells used Dreamcast games cheaply and if you want to go the shady route, burning DC games is child's play. Love the console, love the games, totally sold. I paid a good wedge of cash for mine, but as it came with 2 controllers and VMU's, both the Shenmue games, Soul Caliber and Dead or Alive 2, it was a pretty sweet deal by eBay prices.
