PlayStation 2 Production Discontinued, Sony Confirms

Posted January 7, 2013 - By Adam Rosenberg

Sony Cuts The PlayStation 2 Price To $99.99

The era of the PlayStation 2 is officially over. We recently heard that Sony had ceased production of the sixth-gen console in Japan, and the hardware maker now confirms to The Guardian that, just a few months shy of its 13th birthday, the end of the PS2's life is official and global.

The console's decade-plus life span is one of the longest among video game consoles, rivaling the 13 year life of Nintendo's Super NES in Japan. Sony's 10,000-strong PS2 library (as of 2011) combined for a total of more than 1.5 billion game sales over the course of the console's life, as well as more than 150 million consoles sold.

It's a sad, though not unexpected, development. Why don't you take a moment today to share your fondest PS2 memories in the comments below.
