As of August 2009, it is the best-selling console of all time, continuing to move units years into this current generation. More than three years after the launch of the PlayStation 3, the PS2 has had plenty of new releases, which cannot be said of its former rivals, the Gamecube and Xbox. Both Nintendo's and Microsoft's last-gen systems seemingly ceased production not long after their next-gen counterparts launched, but the PS2 has continued to have strong sales. True, this was aided by a shaky PS3 launch that failed to win over a lot of previous Sony system owners, and the slim model and agreeable price certainly made the PS2 a nice choice for impulse buyers. At any rate, it's undeniable that the PlayStation 2's performance over the last nine years and counting is impressive. However, looking over the new releases planned for this year, it seems like the PS2 could be in its last days."
