Anyway, I'm glad Microsoft entered the console market because with Dreamcast had phased out way too early, Xbox was the most similar console next to it, though there was Gamecube too.

Although Xbox got Shenmue 2 it didn't receive Sonic Adventure games which was an odd choice.

PS2 sure had a long lifespan, and Sony better be glad as hell it made it so long, but I doubt the same will happen to PS3. PS3's a great console and all, but it doesn't compare to PS2.

Well it only makes since.  Sony only got into the console game because of issues with Nintendo.

Can't say I disagree, it was Nintendo's fault that Sony entered the market.
