The Sony PlayStation 2 has been around since 2000. The original console was a thick and fat unit, which was replaced several years back with a much thinner PS2 Slim console. Since the PS2 launched in 2000, Sony has sold 150 million units making it the most successful gaming console ever.
Sony announced today that it was no longer shipping the PS2 in Japan, bringing an end to 12 years of gaming glory. Once current stocks of PS2 consoles run out in Japan, there will be no more.
As sad as it is to see one of the most iconic game consoles ever be discontinued, the PS2 is almost 13 years old. Its replacement, the PS3, has also been around for a number of years. Sony is also working on a replacement for the PS3 expected in the next year or so.

The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
