Which brings me to what I was trying to say earlier (Before another thought came into my head and I got sidetracked
The PSX/PS2 are just to cool, if you can make it cool for 20+ to talk about video games (Which wasn't the case with the SNES/16 bit era) you got the battle licked.
In my opinion the X-Box is not and never will be cool enough to defeat the PS2.
With the X-Box failed everywhere except the USA and not a roaring success there, what's next for Micro$oft, who would like to hazard a guess??
