End of an Era

Sony has final closed its doors on the PS2.

After 18 years, sony has stopped the Ps2 repair service offered to its followers.

The console was first released in Japan in March 2000 and remains the best-selling games console ever produced. Manufacturing of the device ended in 2012, six years after the follow-up PS3 console had been released. Sony said it was no longer able to offer repairs because it was running out of replacement parts for the ageing console. In a statement, the company thanked customers for their “continued patronage”.

The latest model, the PS4, has sold over 80 million units. Gamers seeking repairs will now have to try their luck with unofficial services. More than 150 million PlayStation 2 consoles have been sold in its lifetime.
