Sony stops making PS2 in Japan
TOKYO: Japanese electronics giant Sony said it has stopped producing its PlayStation 2 consoles in Japan, fuelling online rumours a PlayStation 4 is in the pipeline.
Since launching in 2000 the PlayStation 2 (PS2), which has a Blu-ray player, has sold more than 150 million units worldwide, making it the best selling console of all time and was so popular it outsold the its replacement for the first three years.
Shipments have been “completed” for the hardware of PS2, the Japanese website of Sony Computer Entertainment Inc said.
