From the press release about the new 'mini' PS2 console...

Since its launch in November 2000, PlayStation 2, now in its fifth year has reached a consumer installed base of nearly 24 million units in the PAL territories. The exciting new design, combined with the price reduction in August to €149 will position PlayStation 2 for ever greater success over the next half of its life.

Erm #1: to Nov 2001 was its first year, 2002 second, 2003 third, and so as we're still two months from Nov 2004, it's in its fourth year.

Erm #2: if new PS2s are being sold here in November 2008, I'll give oral sex to the PR droid that wrote this c.r.a.p., never mind what I'd do if they sell another 24 million of them.

I dunno, but since the Xbox/PS2 furore of a few years back, does anyone look like coming out with an all-new console in the next year or so?

I used to do work on one of SCEA's websites and in my experience, such calculations are somewhat typical. Enthusiastic gamers do not necessarily make the best marketing/business decisions imo. No slant against gamers, just that your game skills probably shouldn't be on your marketing resume ;)
