Games "We've joked about its refusal to die before, but today, finally, the console begins its march into the history books. Having sold over 150 million units since its release in 2000, the PlayStation 2 has today ceased shipping to Japanese retailers, meaning once remaining stock is gone, it's gone. The console was first released in Japan on March 4, 2000, and in those twelve years has become - by a longshot - the biggest-selling home video game console of all time." I should play Shadow of the Colossus again.

Here in Brazil PS2 still sells a lot, even if xbox 360 and PS3 dominate the sales. Reason are two, small kids that still do not take care and can break an expensive console, and people with little money, that can't pay for games (yes there is a economic and social side in piracy).

Same story here in Buenos Aires. I think PS2 and Wii are the two more popular consoles by far.
