PlayStation 2 ceases production in Japan



Sony has ceased production of PlayStation 2 in Japan, saying goodbye it's most successful console yet.

While production will continue in other countries for now, this marks the end of an era for Sony's PlayStation 2, a console which has sold 150 million units worldwide, has a library of around 11,000 titles and which has sold software totalling a whopping 1.5 billion units.

There are still a few titles in production for the console, however it seems like Sony is preparing for its next console and it's the PS2 which is making way.

What's you favorite PlayStation 2 memory? Let us know below.

My favourite titles of the PS2 were most of the Pro Evolution Soccer series (which on the PS2 smashed FIFA but sadly has never recreated the magic on the PS3), Black, Killzone, Tekken 4 and my other two titles, which I would like to be given an HD makeover for a PSN download, are Timesplitters 2 and Driven To Destruction.

Got to agree with you about pro, the game was superb on ps2 but has faded behind a large shadow in fifa :( FFX and FFXII also great games

Suikoden 4/5, Dragon Quest 8, Final Fantasy X, X-2 (I liked it!), GTA 3/Vice City (hope you are looking back at these for your new one rockstar) , Dark Cloud/2 .Hack, Rogue Galaxy, Timesplitters. GOW 1/2 (even tho 2 was where it started to go downhill quickly.) but overall that era was great. Timesplitters 2, Resident Evil 4, Beyond Good and Evil, Okami were great too (but I played them on other consoles)
