It looks like the demand for the PlayStation 2 is still there. We recently had a chance to speak to Sony Australia Managing Director Michael Ephraim on just how well the PlayStation 2 is going in Australia.
Michael revealed that Sony has an install base of 2.4 million PlayStation 2's, "and an install base of over 550,000 Singstar microphones and 300,000 Buzz!". He also revealed that we can expect to see more Buzz and Singstar games on the way. "It's like a jukebox, we've just got to keep feeding the jukebox and keep that thing alive. So, between that, platinum and the games that are coming out for younger kids from third parties like WALL-E and so on and the lower price of the PlayStation 2. We still think it's got a bit of a life in it. So we have definitely not taken our focus off the PlayStation 2. It's just appealing to a very different market now."
