Sony PlayStation 2 PS2

Having been quite happy with my PlayStation 1, I opted not to buy a PS2 when it came out. This was primarily because most of the games I had on the PlayStation were now being offered on the PS2. Did I really need an updated copy for a new $300 console? Nope.

I bought 2 PS2' in 2010 when the price dropped to $99 and my original PlayStation died. I had a slew of retro game discs from Midway, Atari, Namco, Activision and Williams that I couldn't just lose. Since the PS2 is backward compatible with the PlayStation I had to get one... and then another (just in case).

Sony PlayStation 2 - Technical Specifications

The PlayStation 2 (officially abbreviated PS2) is a sixth-generation video game console manufactured by Sony. The successor to the PlayStation, and the predecessor to the PlayStation 3, the PlayStation 2 forms part of the PlayStation series of video game consoles. Its development was announced in March 1999 and it was first released in March 2000 in Japan. Its primary competitors were Sega's Dreamcast, Microsoft's Xbox, and Nintendo's GameCube.

The PS2 is the best-selling console of all time, having reached over 147 million units sold as of November 2010. In late 2009, with developers creating new games and the console still selling steadily a decade after its original release, Sony stated that the life cycle of the PlayStation 2 will continue until demand ceases.
