The PlayStation 2 is one of the legendary consoles out there, especially having sold about 150 million units since its launch in 2000. However it seems that all good things must come to an end as reports have it that the console will no longer be shipped to retailers in Japan, meaning that once stock has run out, that’s pretty much the end of it. We assume that similar practices will be taken for other retailers around the world so if you’re looking to own a piece of history (assuming you don’t already own a PS2), now might be a good time to get your hands on one. Given that the PS2 is retailing at extremely low prices, it won’t burn a hole in your pocket. Having been launched in Japan on the 4th of March 2000, this makes the console close to 13 years of age – pretty impressive we have to admit.
