i got a super nintendo for christmas the year n64 came out. i asked for the 64 but my parents thought it was too much money. can't imagine asking my parents for a $600 dollar game system. i would imagine they would have laughed at me. i kind of want a slim ps2 myself too. i know i have had many ps2's but they all broke and i have a ps3 with the EE but i still might add one to the collection. i do not think sony selling a product is sad by any means.
