Some people just have a hard time letting go. It could be that your dad still owns his old CRT television because “it still works.” He may claim to not be able to see the difference with HD, but he’s either in dire need of a trip to the optometrist or your father is a bold-faced liar. There’s also the friend that’s still rocking his Motorola Razr because he’d “never use all that iPhone stuff.” Right, remind him of that next time he demands you look up some inane piece of trivia you both are arguing about. Just like those offenders, there are the crows that still hasn’t joined the current generation of consoles and are still playing their PlayStation 2.
Now it may not be their fault completely. It doesn’t help that nearly every annual sports title, and every crap-tastic movie tie-in still sees life on Sony’s sophomore console. So with that in mind, it’s you’re job to help them. There are a couple ways to go about this. When they not so subtly invite themselves over to play Gears of War 3 on your current box, just cut them off! Show them the true repercussions for not wanting to live in the now. Or when they invite you over to play NBA 2K12 on their dinosaur machine, “accidentally” trip over a controller wire (I know… wired controllers) and yank that sonofagun right off the entertainment stand. They’ll have no choice but to embrace the new hotness, then.
Don’t get me wrong, we’re not talking about those who can’t afford new game gadgets. Games are indeed expensive. If it weren’t for Corrupted Saves paying the big Internet money, I’d still be blowing dust out of my NES cartridges. It’s also not that the PS2 is a bad system; she gave us some great times. So do the old girl a favor, and let her rest.
Here’s where I would normally list something coming out for the PlayStation 2, but would you really care?
