    Well, it looks like it wasn't only in Japan, that Sony finally decided to kill the PS2 production.

    According to The Guardian, the PlayStation 2 manufacture has ended after 12 years, worldwide.

    Some of the PS2 final stats:

    - Total games library: 10,828 titles
    - Units sold: More than 150m
    - Total game titles sold: 1.52bn

    There you have it. Nothing more to say, just:

      Even I had wonderful memories of that system. :(

      Oh well, I still have a PS2 gamepad linked up to my PS3 with a PS2 to PS3/PC adaptor, oh and like Foodgasmic Aussie and Chris said, PCSX2.

      When it was released I was but a boy and now as a man I can play some of the classics portably. The legacy (as with the PS1) shall always live on!

      So that means they could bring back PS2 backwards compatibility on PS3 as it wont cut into their ps2 console profits anymore, but ive never known Sony to give their customers what they want (in fact they're better at taking it away).

      Ya all PS2 games (at least the good ones) are going on SEN/PSN just like with PS1. Also thank god I bought a slim PS2 when it first came out and we've barely used it. Damn thing still roars like a champ. It's dusty as hell though, gotta fix that.
