Press some of these people further about whether they'd enjoy seeing some of the other genuinely retro consoles receive some proper coverage more frequently in the magazine and they go silent. Thus revealing their real agenda had naff all to do with improving the balance of RG magazine and everything to do with pandering to their selfish needs.
On the other hand, seems to me that when some (but not all) people whine that "PS2 is not retro" what they're really saying is that they want everyone else to agree with them so to justify them calling for less coverage of their hated Sony console in RG magazine.
Although the thread is just "when does the PS2 become retro?" in all honesty. I think the magazine stuff started with you and the other anti-PS2 is retro side. I could be wrong though. A lot of us are kind of ambivalent on the issue.
