Playstation 2 supply shortage

In order to meet the overwhelming demand for the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system worldwide, Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. is ramping up production capacity from 400,000 units a month to more than one million units a month in the fall, with a further increase to 1.4 million units by the end of 2000. Due to a components supply shortage, the company is tracking approximately one month behind in production. This is not expected to impact the previously announced worldwide fiscal year 2001 PlayStation 2 shipment figures.

Twenty-six software titles will be available at launch on October 26, with more than 50 titles released in time for the holidays. Additionally, 270 titles are currently in development for PlayStation 2 and 301 content developers and publishers are signed-up to create titles for the system, accounting for most of the software development community. Combine the more than 800 PlayStation titles currently available with the ability to play this library on PlayStation 2, and the new system boasts the broadest software catalog ever created.

"We are confident that in light of the huge installed base of the original PlayStation, now available in one out of every three U.S. households, combined with the ability to play the existing PlayStation software catalog, the PlayStation 2 launch in North American will prove to be an unrivaled success, truly demonstrating the company's innovation and leadership as the driving force behind computer entertainment."

Ps2 sucks compared to xbox, but it dosent suck compared to how sh*ty Gamecube is. To prove it, goto this url. [url removed] this page compares the specs on each system. (xbox, ps2, gamecube) and you can see that all of the xbox stats are way better than ps2! (except the release date, lol)Bye.MavereX

To all those gobshites singing about the x-box it doesn't exist yet,so how can it be better than the ps2? All it is at the moment is a pile of circuit boards. Also I have a G-Force 2 gts card for my pc and have yet to se anything remotely like the ps2. I have a jap ps2 & a dreamcast and the pc games aren't even as good as the D.C. So come on get your heads from up your arses and stop whining, why can't you just buy them all and then you can safely say you have the best games system.Like me.Ha

I love how Sony is starting to act more like nintendo, with prodcut shortages and delayed dates. The only difference anymore is that GAMECUBE will rock PS2's WORLD! You can have your Piece of Shit 2's and I'll take my Gamecube anyday, Nintendo, you're the BOMB! I never lowered myself to getting a Piece of Shit 1, so I for sure won't lower myself to getting a Piece of Shit 2!

Playstation 2 supply shortage

man i hope you all enjoy gamecube and it's games' age group of 10 years and under. ps2 will be the best system, and xbox, well...i don't give a rat's ass about x-box because i know it's just goona go downhill anyways. and if gamecube ever releases a teen-mature rated game, it'll be in about 4 years and will probably suck like all of nintendo's games do, so just buy ps2

Playstation 2 supply shortage

oh yeah, i forgot one thing. it's a very wise saying, indeed. "graphics mean nothing". for all of you kiddies out there who side with nintendo should know about gamecube's graphics (if they can read by now). well, graphics aren't what make a system or a game great, you fools. "oh, that game looks great, look at the graphics!" "yeah, but look at how it plays, it's horrible." see what i mean? of course you don't because you're all too young to understand that concept.

SONY owns Nintendo and Microsoft in the game market. Microsoft should just stick to monopolizing all the other PC brands like they always have, and I can't recall playing a N64 game that required you be over 6 to play to the end. N64 sucked so bad it wasn't even funny. PS2 will own the market, just like PSX did, end of story. Besides, Gamecube is about the shittiest name I ever heard.

X-box looks promising, BUT.....It's had it's share of problems. At a recent Electronics Expo (can't recall which) they tested an X-box and it caught on FIRE. ANd all you gung-ho PC advocates that say we need to spend our money on a PC, your point is? I have a Dreamcast, PSX, Nintendo, Super Nintendo, N64, Genesis, AND a fully state-of-the-art PC tricked out with every feature one could imagine. So don't try pullin that "BUY A COMPUTER" shit. I gotta go stomp some people in DM before i play some Tony Hawk on DC.later

Playstation 2 supply shortage

Just because ps2 will rock doesn't mean that N64 is dead. Yes it is true that the people at nintendo basicly gave up on making games for the N64 and put all efforts on project dolfin but hay when ps2 comes out nintendo is going to come out with something better and then Sony ect... Just don't go knockin N64 there a preatty good games for it like Goldeneye, Perfect Dark , and now the new Bond game commin out The World is Not Enough. Nintendo will live on!

Oh or when I play multiplayer, try multi at a computer desk instead of on a nice couch, or when i take it over to a friends house. You all would look good packin yo **it and goin across town.

Awww come on, the X-box could kiss my Ass.It's flucking uglier that sh1t. Sure it might have the power but it's the games that win make the system not the machine. I've played a japanese demo of Metal Gear 2. Trust me, the PS2 is worth the bucks. If you don't believe me then wait a year for the X-box. Oh and remember it's microsoft, the fools that make the shittiest OS in the world and have the worst customer service when it comes to online games I have ever seen. I tend to avoid anything MS if possible.

The fact that PS2 will be backwards compatible with old PSX games will give Sony a huge advantage over the competition...... I think it would be well worth the money if you are able to bring new life to your old games while opening up for new ones......DC will inevitably end up suffering the same fate as the Saturn...it had the potential, but no software to back it up.

Pfft. PS2. rename it PoS2 (Piece of Sh*t2). Can you say overpriced-overhyped-DVD-player-with-only-2-controller-ports-and-no-remote-control?I'd have more satisfaction taking $300.00 out of my wallet and wiping my @$$ with it. GAMECUBE, biotches, GAMECUBE.

OK...PS2 is going to be great but they forgot about the Computer titles that are going to be released in the fall which will blow the shit out of PS2 graphics because the only previews I've seen for the PS2 is movies which look great but gameplay is going to be a poor comparison....We now Play Cstrike and Tribes AS FPS AND TRIBES 2 TEAM FORTRESS 2 DUKE FOREVER WILL HOLD THE SPOT FOR BEST GAMES OF THE YEAR NO PS2 PIECE OF NIGGGGER SHIIT UNDERSTAND YOU FUCCKING NIGGGERS? ok Computer overrules PS2 and any other console coming out...X-box is going to be fine for all you who want to spen a fortune on a console which should not be called consoles anymore because they are COMPUTERS UNDERSTAND FUCCKERS!? that's all i got to say PEACE NIGGS----jiNNSToRM----

Playstation 2 supply shortage

I have one Japanese PS2. I am really sure that it's the most powerfull game console ever maded. It's very fast. Gay Cube will be another BIG mistake of Nintendo. (Mini DVDs hunf ! It's Sucks !)DVD is the best media for games...And Ps2 is DVD ! Go to the IGN site ([url removed] NOW, and droll over the images from GT2000 (or GT3 - GRan Turismo 3) ...It's very, very, impressive !!! Some images looks REALITY ! Sony Rulez. Ps2 is more powerfull that we could imagine. Any game unleash his power yet. Sony is not doing Idiot things like Nintendo or Sega are doing with his consoles...X-BOX is the only that could be better than Ps2... But it will be a fight of monsters... If X-Box runs over Windows...It's already a loser !

Playstation 2 supply shortage

hey ZeroFagX... you must be smoking some good shit... i want some of that. Think about this for a minute... what does X-Box, Game Cube, or DC have over PS2?? absolutley nothing!! PS2 is the ONLY... and I repeat ONLY system that will allow it's users to BURN a dvd... yes you saw that right... BURN a dvd. Granted the hardware for burning them is over 18,000 dollars right now and only software companies have them now... but it is called PS Tools and it is a 233MHz Linux Box... tell me that the X-box can do that and I will shit all over you... I should know... I am selling them where I work, and I heard it directly from Sony... and Microsoft for that matter, that PS2 is a better system hands down. Anyone who thinks different needs to take their heads out of their asses.

Playstation 2 supply shortage

Sure the average person knows jack all about the games industry but this will affect Sony still. This will benefit Sony in terms of lowering the price of the PS2 later than expected. Putting the DVD player was a mistake and they will LOSE MONEY from the selling of consoles and they get their MEGA BUCKS from SOFTWARE LICENSING. This will benefit Sony in terms of lowering the price of the PS2 later than expected. However there are DVD burners which is bad news for Sony and Microsoft. Nintendo software will not be on normal DVDs and extremely difficult to burn. I doubt if the performance of DVD will be the same as a standalone DVD. And to those who are at home playing games all day, GET A LIFE and EXERCISE and experience it to the FULL. You only LIVE ONCE.

Competition is good for the games industry. If u are content with your PC or current console I suggest u WAIT for the Nintendo GAMECUBE which is a highly specialized GAMES ONLY machine and therefore CHEAPER and smaller. The Microsoft X-Box quality games will come from Microsoft itself and they will be available on PC. Nintendo make their OWN games and have a quality partner in RARE who have games that are different to PC type games such as the excellent Donkey Kong and the best game experience of all time - Zelda. PC is the best games platform as well for space, strategy, shooters and simulation. Unfortunately other than burning u can crack and with faster net speeds warez will become a huge problem. Dreamcast is soon to be out of the spotlight and only for fighters which u can find on the Playstation. Nintendo and Sega are the only ones safe now from piracy as emulators (for new consoles) are slow and pathetic to control. I think all other games comp. will benefit from Sony's blunder as it will prolong life of SDC and make the difference of time from the PS2 to the NGC and the MXB shorter. You should only BUY a PS2 if u don't have the original as there aren't that many PS2 only games.

Playstation 2 supply shortage

Anybody that thinks the Gamecube shit will beat the PS2 is a 4 year old or one very stupid dumbass. Nintendo hasn't came out with one good game with the exception of Goldeneye which is starting to get old. I would not own a nintendo piece of shit. and the PS2 is gonna stay at the top when that gamecube shit comes out the original already beat out the n64 and dreamcast sega and nintendo need to get with technology and come up with a good game and system like Sony. PS2 will kick ass!!!!

Playstation 2 supply shortage

I heard that the PSX-2 is not doing as expected in Japan, maybe the so called "shortage" of hardware is just another scare tactic to make people buy more consoles before they begin to become "scarse". I remeber there was a recall of PSX-2 consoles as well, and the memory cards got erased randombly.Maybe the U.S version of the PSX-2 will get better, but seen the specs of the other consoles that are about to be released, I rather wait. Patience has it's rewards.
