PlayStation 2 turned 7 years old, yay!

ps2maniaLight up a cigar because the PlayStation 2 turned 7 years old yesterday! Since its release in North America on October 26, 2000, the PS2 has sold over 120 million units worldwide.

The PS2 has over 1,500 titles and SCEA will introduce 160 new games by the end of March 2008. Some of these new games include Guitar Hero III, High School Musical: Sing It, Madden NFL 08, Manhunt 2, NBA ’08, Rock Band and Buzz.

Also celebrate the 7th anniversary by picking up a shiny white PS2 package with SingStar Pop! Come on, you can’t pass up the white!

Jack Tretton, president and CEO for SCEA, said, "While today’s anniversary celebrates PlayStation 2’s past, we’re very excited for its future. We look forward to the platform’s continued growth and expect to sell approximately 12 million units worldwide by the end of March, leading us to anticipate that PlayStation 2’s lifecycle will exceed that of the original PlayStation. Never before has an in-home game system experienced this type of worldwide success on such a long-lasting scale."

Remember the good ol’ days. Let’s spend the time to reflect on our proud moments with a PS2. I remember going to a friends’ house just to gawk at Gran Turismo 2.
