It was a good run. After 12 years, Sony has ended worldwide production for its incredibly successful PlayStation 2 video game console.
Affectionately called the PS2 by fans, Sony’s second system dominated the market even though it was less powerful than its competitors, the Microsoft Xbox and Nintendo GameCube. How? With games. The PS2 (warning, opinion incoming) had one of the best gaming libraries ever, including Japanese role-playing games like Final Fantasy X and bloody action titles like God of War.
So let’s not mourn the end of an era. Instead, GamesBeat is going to celebrate this magnificent machine by sharing our favorite PS2 memories.
