Celebrities Embrace PlayStation 2

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 15 /PRNewswire/ — On October 26, 2000, Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) redefined the entertainment lifestyle with the introduction of PlayStation 2 — a computer entertainment system designed to bring together games, music, and movies. Here’s what celebrities had to say about this highly anticipated console.

Matthew Perry, Actor, Friends

“I used to have a social life, go on dates, go to dinner parties, have a job. Now all I do is sit in a big chair and play PlayStation 2. I never leave my house. My friends have wondered what happened to me. Howard Hughes must have had one of these.”

Sandra Bullock, Actress, Miss Congeniality

“PlayStation 2 is the only place where I can legally explode things and not harm anyone.”

Carmen Electra, Actress/Model, Scary Movie

“I grew up playing video games. PlayStation 2 takes it to the next level.”

David Arquette, Actor, Scream 3

“PlayStation 2 is to the gaming world what the computer was to the typewriter. It’s not just an entertainment luxury, but a necessity.”

Luke Wilson, Actor, Charlie’s Angels

“Freedom from everyday life can only mean one thing — the arrival of PlayStation 2.”

Snoop Dog, Rapper

“The rush to get the new PlayStation 2 is more out of control than the Cabbage Patch Kids. I want my music on there — I want it to be Snoop Dog and PlayStation 2.”

Marlon Wayans, Actor, Writer, Scary Movie

“It’s the truth. I played John Madden … one sack hit me so big, it broke my rib. You really feel like you’re playing the game. It’s the true experience … PlayStation 2. Forget Dreamcast.”

Jimmy Fallon, Actor, Saturday Night Live, Almost Famous

“The PlayStation 2 is sweet. The new Madden game sounds insane… I want to play it now. I’m also excited about playing over the Internet. If they make an Olympic game it will be awesome to actually play someone in China. Too much fun.”

Jason Lee, Actor, Almost Famous

“It’s the most amazing game I’ve ever played. Amazing graphics, too. The console looks like it’s straight out of Blade Runner!”

Robert Horry, Athlete, Los Angeles Lakers

On attending the PlayStation 2 party on October 18:

“I heard that PlayStation 2 is going to blow everything out of the water. I’m just waiting to see what it’s going to look like. Everyone so far has asked me, ‘You’re not going to Kobe’s party tonight?’, and I just reply no, I’m going to PlayStation 2. I’ll see Kobe in the morning.”

Brendan Fehr, Actor, Roswell

“In terms of graphics, it’s far superior to PlayStation. In between scenes, you see the players come out of dressing rooms, and there are little clips like you’re watching TV. It’s a lot of fun … PlayStation 2 is great because it plays both DVDs and games. And the graphics are so cool.”

Wayne Brady, Comedian/actor, Whose Line is it Anyway?

“The day I receive my PlayStation 2 is the day that all will be right in the world and I will weep like a 4 year old girl. No I don’t want to sound immature…6 year old girl.”

Simon Rex, Actor, Jack and Jill

“Incredible fast graphics that would make Mario run for the hills. If my friends thought I spent a lot of time on PlayStation, just wait until this comes out!”

Jason Biggs, Actor, American Pie

“I’ve heard so much about the system and I haven’t seen it yet, so I’m very excited. I can’t wait to get one.”

Catherine Bell, Actress, Jag

“The PlayStation 2 is amazing and it looks really cool. Plus, the graphics are incredible. I love the fighting games, especially Tekken Tag, because I find all these crazy combinations, and when I play against my husband I always win.”

Antonio Sabato, Jr., Actor, The Big Hit

“I’ve been waiting for PlayStation 2 for a while now … my son and I have been playing [PlayStation] forever. I love it, I play it everyday … I can’t wait to see the graphics on the PlayStation 2. It will be unbelievable. I’ve seen it in pictures — it’s outstanding. It just keeps getting better and better.”

Billy Campbell, Actor, Once and Again

“It’s going to be a long time before anybody beats it … from what I’ve seen.”
