Happy Birthday PlayStation 2 (Best Selling Game Console Of All Time)

PlayStation VS Xbox Sales

The Sony PlayStation 2 brought us so many memories. From the first moment we booted it up with what were pretty high tech discs (at the time), we knew we were ushering in the era of DVD-ROM gaming and immensely upgrading the industry’s console gaming experience to to be closer on par with the PC Gaming of the day and finally allow more decent looking / performing shooters to emerge onto the console scene (such as TimeSplitters and eventually SOCOM).

As it stands today, PlayStation 2 is the  most selling game console of all time citing over 155 million lifetmie worldwide units sold (an accomplishment only Nintendo DS can even come close to when counting DS, DS Lite, DSi and DSi XL combined). The truth is the PS2 provided so many good times, I couldn’t possibly remember them all.

As a celebration I thought I’d take a moment and show off some of my favorite PS2 games. Of course, this list is not going to be agreed on by everybody – I may have forgot some great games, and some of these might just be my own personal taste and not really universally loved. Nonetheless, this is from me to you PS2, enjoy.
