On the bright side, you can get a new Xbox 360 from dell home for like $150, which isn't too bad.
With the new Beatles bundle that would be $400 total, which is a lot, but you'd get yourself on the newest generation and have access to a whole new library of games, DLC, and other goodies.
Heh, I still play my Nintendo 64 constantly. And I bet that now I can find some good games cheap. Don't worry about your PS2 while upgrading; it won't evaporate.
I have never been a PS1, 2 or 3 fan. Just not my thing. Nintendo then Microsoft. Not to bash or slam them, just not my thing. I really don't understand the PS2 only people. I understand the money thing, I really do but the new gens have been out at least 1.5 years. No other gens have had this long of a overlap.
I just don't understand Sony on this. For all you PS2/3 people. Will this be the first major game released for all the other platforms but the PS2? If it is this might be a start of companies leaving the PS2 behind. People can't complain because it's been out for almost 8 years which is the longest a console has been supported.

PS2 support really has got to stop. People see no reason to buy a PS3 until things like this come up.
Look at it this way: if you bought a PS3 now, you could still use all the same instrument controllers. That will save you a good couple hundred dollars. It's not going to cost as much as you think. Not to mention, you can find a backwards-compatible model and enjoy all your PS2 games.
