Sony Kills Favourite Son

The PlayStation 2 is officially dead! The best-selling games console is no more, with Sony pulling the plug on the ability to send the console in for repair.

Whilst it has been hanging onto dear life for eighteen years, Sony Japan notified customers that they had until August 31st to get the console sent in for repair, and after that, it would be no more.

The console shifted over 155 million units during its lifetime and was one of the reasons that DVD took off as a medium, with the console often being cheaper than a state-of-the-art DVD player at the time, and introduced such great franchises as the God of War series.
