The slimline PlayStation 2 console, introduced in 2004, still remains available on store shelves for a retail price of $99.
According to Sony Computer Entertainment America, the console has a worldwide installed base of nearly 140 million, with a library approaching 10,000 games having sold more than 500 million copies combined.
Although Nintendo's GameCube and Microsoft's original Xbox ceased production years ago, Sony today declared that the PS2 "shows no signs of slowing down" at the tail end of its 10-year life span.
According to the NPD Group, the PS2 sold 146,000 last month, down from 173,500 in September 2008 and 215,000 in September of 2007.
To quote from Sony's Senior Public Relations Specialist Abby Reyes:
"There's no set date for when the life cycle of PlayStation 2 will end. As long as people keep playing, and publishers keep putting out great new titles, the console's life cycle will continue.
The longevity of the PlayStation 2 can be directly attributed to its versatility. Because it's not only a game console, but a home entertainment hub, it has found its place in one out of every three U.S. households....
226w ago - Today Sony has updated Life with PlayStation by adding a completely new channel titled 'World Heritage' to it.
It's a simple update, as the channel includes information from various Web sites (including Wikipedia) from multiple areas around the world.
To quote: If you leave your controller for a long enough time, it automatically begins spinning the globe (like the other channels) and displays hi-res pictures from the areas you're hovering above about.
If you would like to see a picture from a designated area, then you can hover the country, hit 'X' and then press the 'start' button.
An overall nice addition to the free application, allowing many Life with PlayStation fans to do even more while helping the common good.
