PlayStation 2 Discontinued by Sony

The PlayStation 2 has been officially discontinued by Sony.

The electronics giant  confirmed it is no longer making the console worldwide following reports  from Japan that production had stopped in the company’s native territory,  according to The Guardian


Units already in storage and shops will be the last new PS2 consoles in  existence, but a select few developers will continue to make software for the  DVD-based system.

The move has fuelled rumours that the platform holder  is shifting its manufacturing resources towards the development of the  PlayStation 4, which is said  to be in the works under the codename of Thebes.

Sony’s PS2 is  credited as being the bestselling console of all time, and even outsold the  PlayStation 3 when it first arrived on the market. It also pioneered the use of  the DVD storage medium in the gaming sector.

The PS2 debuted in Japan in  2000 and moved more than 150 million units during its lifecycle, making it the  bestselling home console of all time.
