    Finally: PS2 stops shipping in japan

    The PlayStation 2 Ceases Shipping In Japan, Begins Well-Deserved Victory Lap

    We've joked about its refusal to die before, but today, finally, the console begins its march into the history books. Having sold over 150 million units since its release in 2000, the PlayStation 2 has today ceased shipping to Japanese retailers, meaning once remaining stock is gone, it's gone.

    The console was first released in Japan on March 4, 2000, and in those twelve years has become - by a longshot - the biggest-selling home video game console of all time.

    While the end was inevitable - it was nearly 13 years old! - it's a little sad the old warhorse couldn't survive just a little bit longer, and live to see its grand-child, the next Sony PlayStation.

    But this thread is about the PS2, not the NES or arguably the SNES...

    Thank you for all the memories, PS2.

    I got mine just a few years after its release, and it still works just fine.

    That is a debatable statement, dont get me wrong the PS2 is a awesome system but PSX and SNES shine up there with as well.

    It was 13 years old human-wise. How many Gaming Console years does that equate to?
