That's not true of the PS2 at all. The PS3 had a disastrous launch. The PS2 being successful did absolutely nothing for the follow up console.
Exactly, lol, if you actually really look at the history of this stuff a lot of these assumptions that get thrown around aren't true.
They stem really from logic that applied to Sega 25 years ago, that's not really applicable to Nintendo, MS, or Sony.
Consumers don't give you any benefit of the doubt based on what you did with an older system when it comes to a new system, even Sony found that out the hard way, they went from the equivalent of being the big man on campus (PS2) to no one willing to return their calls (PS3 circa 2007) in a span of a year, lol.Last edited by Soundwave - on 11 August 2020
