And I think he made an excellent,underplayed point regarding the PS2,with its PS1 backwards compatibility-for once your old collection of classics weren't rendered useless. Alongside the DVD playback,& a general expectation that it wasn't a matter of if, but when Sega would fail,(as far as the gaming media were concerned), always made the PS2 the obvious choice.
I dont think being backward compatible is much of a selling point. If you had a psx1 with games you either kept them all or sold them all. I dont know anybody who sold a psx and kept the games.
