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.

let alone the fact that you can't just loan the game disc to your friends so they, too, can enjoy it.


Huh? I loan and borrow games all the time for my Xbox 360.

Including the games you bought through the online store?

There's a possibility that the next generation of consoles won't use discs. It's messy and ineffective. Retail will get product key cards, Microsoft have been doing that with Office for years now.

That's your own choice. Nobody is forcing you (yet!) to do so.

The next generation will use discs. The one after that - not so sure.

Maybe I'm old school, but when I pay and don't get a DVD box to collect, I'd rather be downloading from torrents instead of xbox.com
