Years after the release of next generation consoles such as the PS 3, Xbox 360, and the Nintendo Wii, the Playstation 2 still continues to be a leading system. Development for new titles will still come 1 or 1 and a half years from now.
The graphics are no comparison to next gen systems, but I was recently impressed with the graphics quality of 007: Quantum of Solace. Sure it does not showcase pixel shader 3 or DirectX 10 technologies, but textures were highly detailed and crisp compared to most PS2 titles. 007
Recently released for the PS 2 were Star Wars: Force Unleashed, 007 Quantum of Solace, Spiderman: Web of Shadows, and NHL 2k9.
This surely ensures that the
PS 2 sales are not dead, and there is more to be utilized with the
system, as opposed to the Xbox or Gamecube, both of which have reached
their end of life terms.
