The PlayStation 2, the best selling console of all time, is officially dead. Obviously, Sony stopped producing the system a long time ago (in 2012, to be precise), but only now, in 2018, has it ended customer support for the platform in Japan. The final, final, final nail in the coffin, if you like.
The PS2 originally launched in March 2000, so it's nearing its 19th birthday in Japan at the time of writing. We said our goodbyes to the console years ago, but writing this story has reminded us of how much we loved that sleek piece of hardware and its many, many games.
