PS2 still a contender in the console wars

Filed under: ,

Believe it or not, the seven-year-old Playstation 2 is still alive and kicking, vying for consumer dollars this holiday season alongside the Wii, Xbox 360, and big brother PS3. COO of Crave Entertainment Rob Dyer told GamesIndustry.biz that the holiday market consists of four consoles and two portables, predicting that his company will profit most from software sold for the PS2, Wii, and handhelds this season.

Indeed, the PS2 continues to be supported by stellar software, from sports titles like Madden 2008, to fantasy titles like Odin Sphere and Persona 3, to big-budget phenomena like the upcoming Guitar Hero III. With software sales predictions listing PS2 as a close fourth this past month, it looks like maybe the head of Sega wasn't so crazy after all.
