Sony has announced that, after 12 years of production, it has ceased making the PlayStation 2 (PS2) video game console. At one point, the PS2 was so popular that it outsold the PS3 for the first three years that the PlayStation 3 was available.
According to T3, the most popular video game console in the world (in terms of units sold) will no longer be made.
The Sony PlayStation 2 first went on sale in March 2000 in Japan. Since then, as PC Mag indicates, more than 150 million PS2 consoles have been sold worldwide. Although production of the hardware has stopped, PS2 games will continue to be produced. Sony has stated that there are 10,828 titles available for the system and that 1.52 billion PS2 titles have been sold since launch
The BBC reports that the PS2 was so popular that it outsold its replacement, the PS3, for the first three years that the PlayStation 3 was available.
Following Sony's announcement, speculation has shifted to the date when Sony will announce the PlayStation 4.
