Playstation 2 is out in Japan today.
If you have been with the world for the last year then you know that the PS2 has officially launched in Japan today. And don't get smart with me and tell me that it's March 3, because in Japan it's Saturday March 4 due to the 16 hour difference from here to there (anybody who repeated the ninth grade three times should know that). Anyways, it is literally a frenzy out in Japan right now, people have been lining up to get their PlayStation2 since the early hours of the day.
Sony expects to sell 2 million units within the weekend launch, and in my opinion they most likely will. PS2 launch titles include Ridge Racer V, Street Fighter EX3, Eternal Ring, and Kessen. Along with new consoles come new mags. A magazine calling the PS2 Emotion has launched their first issue this month.
We are still eagerly waiting for our PS2 import, and as soon as we get it, we will make sure to bring you import reviews of the games we can get our hands on.
