Sony Finally Stops PlayStation 2 Production

By Norman Chan

End of an era.

After 13 years and over 155 million units sold, Sony has halted production of its PlayStation 2 console in Japan. At last count, there were over 11,000 games released for the console, and only Nintendo's DS outsold it worldwide. New PlayStations 2s can still be bought while supplies last, with a new console going for around $150--or half of the original $300 launch price from March of 2000.
