Sony Computer Entertainment this week announced that the cumulative sales of PlayStation 2 video game system reached 150 million units worldwide, as of January 31, 2011. This once again proves that Sony's PS2 is the best-selling game console ever and it remains to be seen whether its sales record will ever be beaten.

This incredible milestone - 150 million units sold-in - was reached in 10 years and 11 months since PlayStation 2’s release in Japan on March 2000. PlayStation 2 features a vast library of more than 10 828 software titles, representing a broad range of game genres that appeal to everyone in the family. More than 1.52 billion units of PlayStation 2 software have been sold worldwide.

PlayStation 2 was the first home computer entertainment system to integrate DVD technology, and the rapid growth of the install base helped establish DVD as the standard optical disc media format worldwide.

Despite almost entering its 12th year since launch, PlayStation 2 system continues to serve as the entertainment centerpiece in many living rooms and is strongly supported in countries and regions, particularly in Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Southeast Asia and South America.
