End of an era: Last PS2 game closes door on Sony's beast

Ninemsn games writes: After more than 12 years, 150 million sales, 2000 games and 1.52 billion game sales, the door appears to be finally closing on the PlayStation 2.

Back in January Sony confirmed it was ceasing production of the iconic gaming machine, yet publishers continued to produce games for the console.

However, the last PlayStation 2 game, EA Sports' FIFA 14, will bring to an end the longest-running life cycle for a gaming console, just as Sony preps for the release of the PlayStation 4 later this year. (PS2)

Did they sell that yellow PS2? I don't even like yellow but damn that PS2 looks nice!

I love yellow and would buy it in a heartbeat!

Amazing that the PS2 lasted until the start of PS4. Since I don't have a BC PS3, I might buy a PS2 when it eventually clearances out.

I cant believe that the console lasted so long. I wonder if the PS3 will have a similar life span?
supersonicjerry  +   775d ago
I doubt the PS3 will have the same life span but I do think it will be close to it I say most the ps3 will have is 10 years. my thoughts though for the simple fact multiplayer plays a big part this gen and next gen and it will be better next gen.

I should remember this. Might be a trivial pursuit question in the future.

Ps2 has been through so much of my life,
Near the end of primary, all of secondary, the games I played with mates.

So many memories are attached to that machine. I still got mine and clean it regularly.

The one and only console!! The ps2 is a legendary gaming console, no other gaming console even comes close to what the ps2 achieved!! What an amazing piece of tech it was and all the amazing games it brought and fun times!
