I may have held off a little longer, It was my first non Nintendo console and I justified buying it for not only the console but the dvd player. A lot of dvd players cost similar or more at that time. It would have still won by a landslide but it probably would have sold maybe 10 million fewer.

A General Electric DVD was about $99 back in 2001 and other brands around the same or $150. 

The PS2 launched at $299 and was the same price when GameCube and Xbox launched.

Just saying, because there is a premise of the PS2 selling a lot because it was the cheapest DVD player available.
