I couldn’t agree more with the summation that The Verge came up with to describe the PS2. I think in the course of consumer electronics there are going to be devices like this that are just seminal landmarks. The PS2 seemed to be crafted by Frank Lloyd Wright with internal workings that seemed to be from the future for its time. The fact that its HUGE library of games is not supported on the new PS3 further makes the PS2 not seem like a dog in a horse race. It is its own breed and definitely lovely. Good on you PS2, may you never go the way of Ol’ Yeller.
