After some conjecture earlier this week surrounding the re-release of some older PS2 Star Wars games, Sony has come out and confirmed that PS2 games are coming to the PS4 courtesy of emulation.
It's the end of an era: Sony's stopping shipping the PS2, the wolrd's best selling console, in Japan. Sainara! [Famistu]
It's baa-aack! Sony's new Bravia KDL-22PX300 exhumes the PS2's still-enjoyable corpse and packs into its own base. The 22-inch set won't upscale PS2 titles, but supports 720p playback. It's an odd inclusion, but would probably be a dorm room dream.
This is Darren Suchon. And even at 42 years old, he doesn't understand that it's wrong to drive your live-in girlfriend off the road just because she took your PlayStation away. Especially when you're using her Porsche to do it.

Recently, I defeated my arch nemesis, the $250 briefcase-bound Casetation 2. It took a $99 PS2 (super power: price cuts), duffel bag, and connecting to any TV, because they're everywhere. $151 left over. Flawless Victory.
Remember that crazy, bulbous PS3 motion controller spotted in a Sony patent app? Well a newly uncovered Sony application is slightly less Requiem for a Dream and slightly more Captain Planet.

Harold Nicholson was a CIA operative convicted of espionage for selling CIA identities to Russia. Since 1997, he's been in jail. But allegedly, his son Nathan has carried on the family business...
Sometimes it's easy to lose perspective amidst marketing. Case in point: Nielsen measured that gamers, on whole, spent 31% of their time on the PS2 in 2008 (more than the Xbox 360 and Wii combined).
