What was the PS2's killer app? X-Box 360? Nintendo DS? PS4? PS3? 

If you're saying "what has this world come to", it implies that past systems have always, or at least usually, had killer apps available at launch.

So, how are you defining killer app, and what have those killer apps been for past systems? If you can't come up with a decent answer to that, then the comment kind of seems trolly.

The PS2 actually had a very strong launch at launch. A lot of which were exclusive.

Most other consoles I agree. Not the OG Xbox (Halo CE) mind and and definitely not the PS2. He was a bit hyperbolic though. The new Series S/X lineup has one of the weaker Xbox launches in recent history - particularly if you count new first/second party or exclusive third party games.

I mean, they had Halo Infinite but needed to  push it back. I would rather have a delayed game than a botched release. It would be silly of Microsoft to delay their system until the lineup is larger considering games like Assassin's Creed Valhalla and a few other games are getting more hype for next gen.
