Gamers around the World Saddened at the Passing of the PS2

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.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. 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.
