When will the PS2 stop selling?

Forums - Sales Discussion - When will the PS2 stop selling?

I don't think PS2 has been on the market in about 3-4 years.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

It will continue to sell to developing markets for a couple of years probably. It will stop at about 160 to 170 million, i say. It certainly trumped it's competition, i would say



Xbox One, PS4 and Switch (+ Many Retro Consoles)

'When the people are being beaten with a stick, they are not much happier if it is called the people's stick'- Mikhail Bakunin

Prediction: Switch will sell better than Wii U Lifetime Sales by Jan 1st 2018

Ah the goodtimes!!

I think it will be discontinued in Europe and the US before the year's end and then in 2014 in more places and will finally be officially discontinued everywhere.



According to a new study; YouTube, Xbox.com, NeoGaf, N4G, VGChartz, IGN, GameSpot, GameStop, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, All of Europe, FAMITSU, Japan, the rest of Asia and The whole of the Middle East among countless others are experiencing a Tsunami of people in love with Sony's gamings offerings.

5-10 years when it becomes saturated in developing markets.

Whoa, that's a long time.  I doubt it, though.  Within a year or so, I'm sure Sony will replace the PS2 with the PS3 in those regions.  It will surely be cheap enough to sell there by then.



cant believe ps2 is going to end only 40m off 200m in hardware sales. incredible.

Buy a Vita too for Persona 4: Golden ;o



2015 could be possible for places like India, China and the Middle East where its still doing pretty respectable numbers.

Remember people. Despite getting trounced in America, Europe and Japan... The PS2 outshipped the DS in H1 of 2012. Its still doing fairly good numbers in the emerging markets.

Depends on - Production facilities for PS2 near said regions. When PS4 releases. How quick Sony can get the PS3 to be the viable option in expanding markets.

I expect this year. They'll probably really start pushing PS3 to replace PS2 in those emerging markets. They can't have support 3 home consoles.....

But they won't be supporting 3 home consoles really, since PS2 sells mostly in areas where PS3 has only recently become a major player and where PS4 won't be a big player for a while. I think this year would be cutting its legs too short. 3m this fiscal year, so they can do 1-2m for this one. It's the perfect plan!

Ok then I say 2014. By then the PS3 should be much cheaper and profitable.
Does anyone have any sort of sales of how PS3 is selling compared to PS2 in these markets?
