An end of an era, Sony Ends PlayStation 2 Production Worldwide


A sad day for Playstation 2 fans. Sony just announced that they will be ending all production of the most successful console to date. 

It was first announced that all production will cease in Japan, but Sony confirms to Guardian that they will be ending the PS2 reign worldwide.

Can you believe it? The console was in production for 12 years and since it's launch in 2000, Sony sold over 150m consoles worldwide. I still remember the day I got my Playstation 2, I was in 2nd year high school, I came from the mall and I couldn't wait to set it up at home. My first games were Devil May Cry, Final Fantasy X, and Metal Gear Solid 2.

It's definitely the most successful console to date. To survive more than a decade, living side by side with its successor the PS3 for years? But good things must come to an end.
