Back in 2000 when Sony launched PlayStation 2, the console was a wild success. Avid gamers were blown away by its design, by the fact that it packed a DVD player and because it had a huge repository of excellent games. However, flash forward 12 years and PS2 has finally come to the end. Sony has announced that it has stopped worldwide production of the console.


Sony PS2

Over the 12 years, Sony’s PS2 has remained one of the most wildly popular game consoles in the world. Over the course of these years, the company has sold a whopping 150 million units worldwide. The console is heralded as being the one which pushed video games out of its niche audience and brought it into the wild, attracting millions of new gamers.

However, times have changed and Sony has apparently failed in adapting to the changed market dynamics so far. Gamers have now gone over to the mobile platform, with the likes of iPhone grabbing a major share of the gaming industry. So changed is today’s gaming industry from what it was ten years ago that it is hard to imagine that a console would ever be able to gain such mass popularity as PS2.

Sony has been contemplating the decision for a while now and has finally pulled the plug on the console. However, if you still wish to lay your hands on one of the PS2 units, you should be able to find it easily, at least for some time still.
