The Final PlayStation 2 Shipment In Japan: Last Hooray


-Marcus Lawrence

The end of an era is finally descending upon us. Sony has shipped out the last PS2’s in Japan, according to Famitsu. The PlayStation 2 has been around for nearly 13 years with the initial release being March 4th, 2000.

It goes without saying that the PS2 won’t be around much longer in other countries. While there hasn’t been any official word from Sony, it’s not hard to put two and two together. The PS2 did more than great since the console outlasted both Microsoft’s Xbox and Nintendo’s GameCube.

There’s certainly a weird feeling about witnessing the end of the PlayStation 2. Many of my childhood memories revolve around that system. Some of the greatest games I’ve ever played were played on the PS2. Kingdom Hearts 1&2, God of War 1&2, Zone of the Enders and many more grounded my love for the console.

So I have to ask this question: What are your favorite memories of the PlayStation 2?
