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.

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).
Lego were good enough to build the first Google search engine, so it's no surprise that the little bricks work just fine for vintage PlayStations, too.
PB&J, tables and chairs, liquor and swimming, jogging and gaming—these are matches made in heaven. Fortunately, the Jog has you covered with the whole jogging and gaming thing.
