PS2 still going strong

The Sony PlayStation 2 launched in 2000 and hasn't slowed its pace or faltered since. Backing up Sony's statement that their consoles have 10 year life cycles is the fact that the PS2 has sold 188,000+ units 8 years after its launch in just the month of June. In comparison to Microsoft's brand new console the Xbox 360, which sold only 219,800 in the month of June, Sony's 8 year old system sold only 31,800 less units. Only time will tell whether or not the PlayStation will still be popular in the year 2010.
