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 unitsÂ day oneÂ 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 2001Â 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?
