Even though video game manufacturers are planning to release their next-generation of consoles, Sony’s PlayStation 2 remains a hit and the best-selling game of all time.
March 4, 2000, saw the release of PlayStation 2 in Japan while gamers in North America, Europe, and the rest of the world got their hands on the affordable system by end of the same year. The game became an instant hit and remained popular for a very long time.
In fact, Sony claims that they have sold more than 155 million units of PS2 until it was discontinued in 2013. It is also the best-selling video game console of all time – far ahead of its successor, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii, and Xbox.
The following chart also shows Sony dominating the gaming landscape for more than two decades for creating some of the best revenue grossing video games. The company is also working on its next-generation game console called the PS5 and expects to release it before the upcoming holiday season.
Similarly, Microsoft has also announced its Project Scarlet – the future of Xbox. The company claims that the new gaming console will boast four times the power of Xbox while users will also find it dramatically different from its predecessor.
