This week marks the 20th anniversary of the PS2 launch in Japan. I didn't hear it mentioned on this week's Bombcast. Reckon the crew have anything lined up to celebrate the best console of all time? 🥰

Maybe they could play through the ps2 launch titles. But one, they may have done that before in the past and two, a lot of them aren’t very good.

I'm so old. Granted, I didn't buy my PS2 until 9/8/2001 (can't imagine why I would remember the Saturday that I purchased my PS2...). I remember when there were rumors/concerns that Saddam Hussein was purchasing has many PS2s as he could to power his nuclear missile program.

I didn't get a PS2 until 2004, when the hype around San Andreas co-incided with a student maintenance loan lump sum showing up in my bank account. What a great little console.

Unless there'll be a surprise stream, it doesn't seem too likely we'll get a dedicated one. Might play something on UPF or then they'll just wait until October, for when PS2 launched in NA.

I bought mine only around 2007, when the PS3 was already out, I guess? Just wanted to get my hands on God of War 1&2, which alone were enough for me to justify it's purchase. Was already the following year or 2009, when I sold it off to buy a bunch of PS3 stuff.

PS2 era was the best time to be playing video games. Yes, I'm saying Vinny is wrong.

It beats the SNES, in my opinion. Just a stacked library, although some are hard to go back to.

I did the same thing, couldn't afford any new consoles at the time, but the PS2 Slim versions got pretty cheap by 2007-08. My first games for it was Capcom's Arcade Classics Collections 1 and 2, so they weren't exactly pushing the hardware to the limits either.

I hold that the original PlayStation 2 had the best industrial design of all consoles, maybe to this day.
