Last week we found out that PlayStation 2s had stopped shipping in Japan. Sony has now officially announced that PlayStation 2 production has stopped worldwide, according to The Guardian. Yes, it's truly an end of an era.

Hard to believe it's been 12 years since the PlayStation 2 was brought to life. In that time Sony sold 150 million units worldwide, and there were over 10,000 games created for Sony's dominating system. There's no denying that the PlayStation 2 won the last-generation, with its killer lineup of exclusives, and the brilliant idea of including a DVD player within the console.

While it hasn't seen the light of day for the longest time now, I'm glad I own my PlayStation 2 plus handful of games still.
