Quote from: Goukosan on March 03, 2024, 02:18:13 PMPS2 sold for $99 and served the DVD movie player market at the time DVDs were the new hot thing and you could get a PS2 for cheaper than a stand alone DVD player.

Sony including the DVD player function into the PS2 at launch was genius and it made it an Uber mass market device.

Just as Nintendo engineering a hybrid that knocks the functionality out the park from day 1 was also genius and a Uber mass market concept.
DVDs weren't the hot new thing anymore by the time the PS2 reached that price point though.  There were already tons of dirt cheap DVD players on the market by then.  Yes, it was a genius move, as was Nintendo making their console a hybrid... and in both cases their extreme success can be attributed to serving additional markets outside of the traditional console market.  I'd still put Switch at having more of an advantage, as Nintendo was already the established Handheld market leader and had big inroads into that market.

Still, it's important to remember there are far more gamers now than there was back then.. and $99 back then is still around $150 today.. which puts it close enough to the Switch Lite's price to where it's not really a matter of "accessibility".

You would never see Sony or Nintendo first party devs promoting a rival console. This is shameful  :cruise:
