Is This The Last PS2 Game Magazine Cover?

Illustration for article titled Is This The Last PS2 Game Magazine Cover?

Who would have thought that this late in the console's life cycle that a PlayStation 2 game would make the cover of a major gaming publication? The latest issue of Play magazine features Atlus' upcoming RPG Persona 4, with a whole slew of special Shin Megami Tensei-themed features packed inside. It's really an odd sight to see, especially considering the other games listed in the top-right corner of the cover - Afro Samurai, Mirror's Edge, Resistance 2, Sonic Unleashed, and Prince of Persia - all big name, current generation titles. I get the feeling this is a sort of swan song for the aging console, but what do you guys think? Is this the last time a PS2 title will grace the cover of a major multi-platform gaming mag, or does the little black box still have some life in it yet?

I'm still amazed it's having games made. I guess since the PS3 isn't selling as amazingly as say...The Wii :P Then Sony can still drain the PS2 for every penny they can get...
