That's the way I've seen it; PS2/XBox are the new babysitters. A lot of parents are probably expecting the games to be of the same vein as Mario
Bros or Sonic, the games they, their younger siblings, or their older children grew up with. They don't seem to realize that these games are
marketed at adults and not at children.
Of course, one way or the other, IMO there isn't much to be said anyways about someone who'd sooner leave their kid sitting in front of a television
playing games--regardless of the content--than spend time with the kid as a parent should, throwing a ball around, talking about what's going on in
their life, whatever.
