Forums - Sony Discussion - When will sony dicontiune the ps2?

Never, remember Master System is still in production in many countries. Sony just announced an 5 years plan for PS2 in Brazil.

ba-zing!

A rather unwarranted response, no?

OT: I mentioned in the previous thread that it would most likely happen in late 2010/early 2011.

That should be about the time Sony gaming is getting ready to fold. But even then, Sony will never acknowledge the PS3 for the tragedy that it is. Sad.



the PS2 is sonys cash cow. if they stop makeing the PS2 sony would
lose even more money.so whne people stop buying the PS2
then they will stop makeing it.
the PS2 still out sells the PS3 in the stores near me.



VITA 32 GIG CARD.250 GIG SLIM & 160 GIG PHAT PS3

I don't know of this "tragedy" you speak of, but whatev.



                                                                                                                                            

Well, it could be some time. I think that production will stop around 2011.

They'll stop making PS2 when manufacturing + shipping cost more than the profit they can make.
I'm guessing it when the PS2 sales drop bellow 1000 units per month every month for 6 months or something.



when it stops selling



It's quite possible that it'll last a lot longer than that, if Sony tries to use it as their main console in developing markets and such. I heard that the PS2 is the only viable console in Brasil, for instance, because of that country's insane 150% tax on foreign electronics, making a PS2 $250, in an already much poorer country.

I can't imagine a $1000 PS3 will be taking off in Brasil any time soon. :-/

Weren't NESs being made as late as 2002 or something crazy? I know games were being released as late as 1995 for that. Looks like the PS2 is going to end up breaking the NES's cockroach-like longevity.

It's like the Titanic. The builders were overconfident and thought it was unsinkable. Then it lost a floating match to an iceberg.


I suppose the tragedy isn't so much the downfall of the PS3 but the sorry state of affairs of a once proud gaming empire like Sony. They're the GM of video games.

its still selling in the same league as Ps3 and 360 so probably not any time soon

It's no where near selling as well as those two now.
