If you like stuff like persona 3F like I do and Draken Gaurd or going back and playing Saga Frontier 2 or Rouge Galaxies then yes it matters.
To people with PS2's still maybe not so much. I gave my PS2 away.
I still have my ps2 and its working perfectly. However, I like having only 1 piece of equipment playing all my games and movies and streaming content from my PC into my game room. My ps3 does this quite well.

"WAR is a racket. It always has been.
It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives"---Maj. Gen. Smedley Butler
