PS2 to top market until 2009

US website Business Week has reported that it believes PS2 will continue to outsell every other machine on the market – including Xbox 360, Wii and PS3 – until well into 2008.

The site states that: “Sony will rake in some $1.4 billion this year from licence fees paid by game makers and sales of its own game titles for the PS2 and its predecessor, the PSOne. So it's clear Sony will want to milk the PS2 for all it's worth.

“PS2 is cheap. Sony has cut the PS2's price to about £99, down from a high of £299, to entice casual gamers and kids. And with continuing sales and so many PS2 consoles in living rooms worldwide, there's plenty of demand for new titles.”
