Since its inception in late 2000 Sony’s PlayStation 2 has sold a reported 115 million units worldwide making it the best selling console in history. And given its affordable price and large library of games, it shows no signs of slowing.
Indeed there is as PS2 sales continue to impress. The last-gen console has outsold Sony’s new flagship, the PlayStation 3, every month since the latter first launched this past October. By comparison, Microsoft’s Xbox 360 has only outsold the PS2 twice during its 21 month life. The PS2 has even outsold the popular Wii on several occasions, though the Nintendo console outperforms the PS2 more often than not.
