PlayStation 2 "The Daddy" turns 10 years old today

A day like today, 10 years ago, PlayStation 2 was launched in Japan.

Its development was announced in March 1999 and it was released a year later in Japan. Its primary competitors were Sega's Dreamcast, Microsoft's Xbox, and the Nintendo GameCube.

The PS2 is the best-selling console to date, having reached over 140 million units sold as of September 30, 2009. Several new games are scheduled to be released in 2010, thus continuing the sixth generation.

A decade since the best console ever (in terms of quality games) launched !

How time flies..


so apparently sony will have a 13 year plan for ps2 :P





And has been outsold for the last 5 years lol. I remember that chart last year, PS2 had 2% of USA software sales. That was year 9. So much for Sony's ten year ps2 lol.

PS3 will be in even worse position after ten years since it had not PS2's initial popularity, not even 10%.
