There's also a huge factor why the PS2 sold as much as it did, I don't know if anyone mentioned it already, but it was piracy, the PS2 was a relatively easy console for running pirate games, and since that was the last Sony console without an online service, there wasn't any issue with running pirate games and getting your console banned from online games or updates. A lot of my friends bought the PS2 just because they could buy cheap pirate games
