A great era has passed. I tip my hat to the ps2 for lasting beyond the 10-year cycle.

The PlayStation 2 was launch in Japan on March 4, 2000. Its about to be January 1, 2013, so, its been nearly 13 years. 13, if they waited 3 more months, but I guess 13 is a bad number for some.

Greatest System ever made in my opinion.

PS2 was an amazing system.

Such a good system. Still hoping on a few games to get either the HD treatment or just a collection.
