Seven-year old PS2 reaches 120m sales

Sony says 'happy birthday' to popular console

Sony has proudly reminded console fans that its PS2 (PlayStation 2) has now reached its seventh birthday.

Sony first launched the PS2 in North America on 26 October 2000, and more than 120 million PS2s have been sold worldwide since then, making it the best selling console of all time.

"While today's anniversary celebrates PlayStation 2's past, we're very excited for its future," said Jack Tretton, president of Sony. "We look forward to the platform's continued growth and expect to sell approximately 12 million units worldwide by the end of March, leading us to anticipate that PlayStation 2's lifecycle will exceed that of the original PlayStation."
