The PS5’s biggest weakness is exposed by the PS2


Last year we saw the long-awaited launch of the PS5, the latest in a long line of Sony consoles. 2020 was also notable in that it was the 20th anniversary of the PS2, which remains the best-selling games console of all time. Over 155 million units sold is no small feat.

Success aside, you’d think that the PS2 would be obsolete by now. The system is just over a month away from being old enough to drink, was discontinued worldwide in 2013 and has been succeeded by three different consoles. Four if you count the PS4 Pro as its own thing. Not to mention the fact that the PS2’s biggest draw, the DVD player, has long since been replaced by Blu-rays, streaming and digital downloads.
