Fall of 2009; that's when I bought mine.

Glad DmC shipped a million copies and was a success. Supporting risk-takers and change is how the industry grows.

Yeah, absolutely late 2009. Bought mine when MGS4 came out

'Come fight beside me,' I said to myself, and although it doesn't make sense, I held my own hand as a small sign of trust, and together I made my defense.

there was this huge flood of games for the PS3 during that time, then continued on to 2010. it was smooth sailing ever since.

Never really. I bought the first slim when it came out, kept it maybe a year or so. Don't really know anyone who owns one that isn't a diehard Sony fan.

The sales are likely just PS2 fanbase remnants, well, the ones who didn't just buy it because it was a DVD player. Sony's relevancy began and ended with the PS1, though I still adore my PSP.

The PS2 crushed any competition is may have had.

When Naughty Dog stops developing games for it.

Because DVD.

Xbox came too late with it and required a separate purchase, by then everyone had a DVD player who wanted it.

That certainly explains the near monopoly the PS2 had.

You've got DVDs and movies on the brain. They've got boards for those.
