Sony discontinues PS2 shipments in Japan

ps2systemWhat a run! After 12 years, nine months, and 25 days, Sony has announced that new shipments of the PlayStation 2 console in Japan have been discontinued. A similar announcement will probably be made for the European and American markets soon.

During the course of the system’s life, over 155 million PS2s were sold, making it the most successful video game console of all time.

It’s unlikely that any new games are still in development for the system, so this October’s Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 will probably go down in history as the last PS2 game ever.
