PS2 Still Going Strong!

I know this is a PS3 blog but the good old PS2 still deserves some credibility!

Sony’s PlayStation 2 has shipped a whopping 150 million units globally, the hardware manufacturer has revealed.

Released back in 2000, the system has flogged an eye-watering 1.52 billion units of software, and boasts a line-up of approximately 10,828 titles to its name.

Furthermore, Sony said that it expects continued demand for the aging platform in a number of territories, including Eastern Europe, South America, South East Asia and the Middle East.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas holds the distinction of being the PS2’s best-selling game to date, having sold a prodigious 20 million units worldwide as of February 2009. Other heavy-hitters available on the platform including Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, Resident Evil 4, God of War I & II, Final Fantasy X, Shadow of the Colossus and Silent Hill 2.

  2. Brings back memories, almost a tear to my eye. Mind you I remember the PSOne was an instant hit as well, but not as much as the PS2.

  3. A friend of mine owns a gaming store, and he tells me that to this day customers still come in and ask for PS2 games. It's still quite popular indeed.

  13. I own GTA:SA, FFX and MGS2. All are great games. FFX gets a lot of heat from folks in the gaming community, but I think it's a beautiful game.
