I was surprised early to hear that God of War II was a PS2 game… and now this? I think it just the price that is scaring developers… scary to develop for a console that seems out of the price range of your target audience. I say “seems” because despite my own (biased) negative thoughts about the PS3, I expect it to be a pretty impressive machine… one that quite a few people will pick up. I do agree with other people’s predictions that it will lag behind the 360, the $$ will see to that, but I don’t think anyone expects it to flop…
I don’t think I’ll end up getting a PS2 though, as tempting as it is at the low-low refurbished prices you can find it at now; the idea was to pick up a used one and an EyeToy and then try to lose some weight playing Kinetic… but all that work for one game seems like a bad idea. Instead I need to find some way to do some mild exercise while playing any game on my 360. It wouldn’t be instead of my normal exercise routine, but every little bit counts. A recumbent exercise bike seems like a possible solution, although I don’t think my wife wants one in our living room.
