Playstation 2 is officially 10 years old |


The Playstation 2 is officially 10 years old!

Released in March 5th 2000 to eager Japanese gamers, the PS2 sold 980,000 units day one alone. It became available for North America on October 26th and Europe November 24th that same year. Though 10 years old the PS2 is still the best selling system to date. As of September 2009 the PS2 has sold 140m units worldwide.

I didn’t get a PS2 until 2001. Can’t remember the exact date but I do recall playing hours and hours of Tekken Tag ( the best Tekken game to date! ) with my brothers. After that it was long wait for other games to come down the pipeline.

Onimusha , Gran Turismo 3, and The Bouncer from SquareSoft, held me over until FFX hit later in 2001 and it was worth the wait.

Sadly my PS2 only made it to 7 years before it passed away, but they were the best 7 years a gamer could ask for!

Happy birthday Playstation 2 and thanks for the memories!

Remember when you got your PS2?

    Remember the days when a console would last 5+ years not 3 like my PS3, guess they named the console right.

    I got the PS2/GT-3 combo. That game was just awesome. GTA 3 was my favorite game when that came out. So many good games back then that were so much better on the PS2 compared to the PSOne.

    Was a great system but I really like the time were are in currently for gaming. More games, online, great graphics/sound, etc.

    I just can’t believe it has been 10 years already.
