The final nail in the coffin, say it ain't so.

The PS2 is a great console, tons of fantastic games and mine held up like a tank. Still have the old phat model I got as a kid and the only thing wrong is the memory card slot seems a little faulty. Still play mine quite often.

Oh man. So many good times with the PS2. So many hours spent on Metal Gear, Ratchet & Clank, Gran Turismo..

I bid you farewell, PS2, and I thank you for all of the memories.

When I go back and compare my PS3 with my PS2, and my Wii/WiiU with my Gamecube... It really makes me miss the last gen consoles. They were revolutionary, and amazing. It's sad to see this system "officially" gone...

I whole heartedly agree. Every time I compare current consoles to last gen's it makes me kinda wish I could go back in time a while, just to re-experience the glory days.

Seeing the dwindling shelves at GS makes me sad.

Man, they don't even have the PS2/GC games on shelves anymore where I live. I have to ask for a specific game at the counter, and then they bring it out from the back.

Half the time they don't even have half the GC games they claim to have. RIP the golden era of gaming.

Goodbye! Old friend! One more console in the Playstation family that fades out of existence. At least I still have mine, unlike the PS1 I used to have.

Oh the PS2, so many memories. I love to pop in Yakuza from time to time, or play some King of Fighters XI when I really want to rage. Even more often than most games in my modern library, I still play the Beatmania IIDX series on my Japanese PS2 to fine tune my skills for anime conventions. As a home to what are arguably the best music simulation, free-roam, and fighting games, I'll always hold the PS2 as one of my favorite systems of all time. Goodbye, my fat black friend... *Manly Tear*

Wait.....what?!

Wakaman Its not much better over here. While the GSs over here have a couple shelves full they're mostly the typical sports, shooters, party games, and shovelware, and one just has a bin full of paper sleeved games. GC games are almost non-exsistant, just 1-2 bottom shelves. They're not very organized either, finding anything good is like finding a needle in a haystack.
