DID YOU KNOW?
The PlayStation 2, Sony's home game console series, is the best-selling console of all time. It's also among the list of the longest active consoles of all time? The PS2 was first launched in 2000 and were sold like hotcakes all over the world. It reached the 100-million mark in units sold in 2005, less than 6 years since its first day on the market. It was so competitive that they continued their production. This is despite the fact that the PlayStation 3 was already introduced. Sony decided to end its operation in 2013. They wanted to concentrate on the PlayStation 3 and the development of PlayStation 4. By that time, they already sold more than 155 million PS2 units, with more than 1 billion games for the console.
The PS2's long 13 years on sale was only behind two other consoles. The Atari Video Computer System, from 1977 to 1992 (15 years). As well as the SNKPlaymore Neo Geo Megashock AES, from 1991 to 2004 (13 years). By the number of units sold, the PS2 is quite ahead of the competition. Its number of units sold is more than 50 million of what the PlayStation had, its predecessor. The PS2 was such a big success that it inspired emulators long after its discontinuation. This was true for PlayStation 2 emulators for Android. Users were on the look-out for the best PS2 emulators in the market and there was no shortage of good choices.
