Hold the tucking phone! Sony have stopped shipping PS2s to Japan. PS2 is barely selling in USA and Western-Europe. Yet, Sony manage to ship several million PS2s each year and I think they predicted around 3m shipments for it this fiscal year that ends in March 2013. This means it's still selling in many countries, just not much of it in the countries we directly estimate here.
My question to you is thus: When can we say PS2 has stopped selling everywhere? Will it be this year (2013) or the next perhaps?
I'm going to say it will happen early 2014, what about you?
As an additional question, what do you think PS2s final sales numbers will look like? My guess is right around 160m shipped, announced by Sony when they announce its discontinuation.
