380877 10: Boxes of the Nintendo 64 and Sega Dreamcast video game systems sit on the shelves October 26, 2000 at a Toys R Us store in El Paso, Texas. The Nintendo and Sega platforms are the main competition for the new Sony PlayStation 2 which went on sale October 26, 2000 across the United States. The PS2 is already in short supply because Sony had to cut the initial American shipments of the gaming platform in half. The company originally promised 1 million units, but chip shortages forced Sony to reduce that figure to 500,000. (Photo by Joe Raedle/Newsmakers)
