Egotastic: There aren't many sad eyes around Egotastic HQ today as the news of Playstation 2's demise in Japan sinks in. Here's the Famitsu story describing the end of the PS2's production run but you shouldn't go there unless you read Japanese fluently. We do not read Japanese fluently but we know that after 150 million units sold, beginning in March of 2000, the Playstation 2 left it's mark on the world.

It's 2013 and Playstation 2 is the best selling home videogame console of all time.

Here are the Top 6 Things the PS2 Gave to Mankind. (Culture, Grand Theft Auto III, PS2)
