Comment: What about the PS2 and DVD movies? (Score 1) 228

by JonN (#15436571) Attached to: Blu-Ray Should Have Been Optional on PS3?
Look at the PS2 - it greatly influenced the use of DVDs in the household. I know quite a few people who used their PS2 as a DVD player long before they got a specific DVD player. The PS2 was a great doorway for the DVD, as it was quite obvious the PS2 would sell and it brought DVD movies along with it.

It may not be the best thing to say, but I find that it will most likely be true when David Reeves, the SCEE CEO said: "We have built up a certain brand equity over time since the launch of PlayStation in 1995 and PS2 in 2000 that the first five million are going to buy it, whatever it is, even it didn't have games".
