The PlayStation 2 is offically dead. Long live play.

Sony has confirmed that not only has PlayStation 2 manufacture ceased in Japan, but the console will not longer be produced anywhere else in the world.

The PlayStation 2 was originally released in Europe back in November 2000. It is the best selling console of all time and as such, is regarded as one of the, if not the, greatest console there ever has been.

We will miss you old friend.
