Sony No Longer Shipping the PlayStation 2 in Japan

Sony No Longer Shipping the PlayStation 2 in Japan

After almost thirteen years on the market Sony has announced the PlayStation 2 will no longer be shipped in their native Japan.

The PlayStation 2 is the most popular console of all time selling over 150 million units. The console continued to sell well in Japan until at least Christmas 2011 when sales rivaled that of the newly launched PS Vita.

Sony has not stated when they will cease shipping the console to other markets where it continues to be sold, such as South America.
