The PS2 as we remember it

Has it been this long? Since the Playstation launched in Japan back in 2000, the PS2 has sold nearly 150 million consoles worldwide. If the PS3 ever hits this mark (assuming that we don’t see the PS4 or whatever it will be called),  our kids, nephews and nieces will probably have licenses and driving electric and fuel cell cars. Amazingly, the console, which will celebrate its 11th birthday next month, is still shipping units even since its successor the PlayStation 3 was released just over four years ago. This was mostly attributed by the continued support from third party developers and publishers, and exclusive blockbuster franchises such as the 4th installment of Jak and Daxter, Ratchet and Clank and SingStar. There are now more than 10,828 titles in the PS2 gaming library, with more than 1.52 billion software units shipped worldwide as of December 2010. SCE says that it will “continue to further expand the PlayStation platform and create a new world of computer entertainment.” Feel free to start reminiscing about the days of yore, when the PS2 was fresh and new.
