    That's not 150 million, its 1.5 billion lol.

    150 million = 150,000,000
    The record stands at = 1,527,000,000 (which is 1.5 billion is it not)

    1,527,000,000 software sales if I'm not mistaken.
    Which I find weird, 1000 games per customer? Not including broken console replacements.
    EDIT: Unless the article is all about software sales, I thought it was about console sales...

    Sales for the PS2 will continue to improve I think, courtesy of the high sales in poorer/ less developed countries in Asia and around the world.

    Sony should thank the pirates, because piracy was what made this console so popular.

    Yes it is in the poorer countries like here in egypt . The ps2 is sold here pre-moded even in all major supermarkets & stores. Also pirated ps2 games are sold here for about 2$ a disc and thats the reason people here still buy it instead of ps3. Although now that the ps3 also got hacked once there is a nice custom firmware people will start selling modded ps3 here and the ps2 sales will begin decreasing.

    That's quite interesting. I wonder how much percentage of these sales figures then are made up from poor countries... [​IMG]

    Might buy a ps2 someday and mod it... never was too big a fan of the ps2 though, but I did really enjoy the psx. Also got a 300gb softmodded Xbox, and soon a chipped Gamecube, so theres really no need. Has the wii matched ps2 sales yet?

    I think Wii is like 70 million sales worldwide but I could be wrong.

    The PS2 was and still is an amazing system, if you don't have it you really should pick one up. There's a good reason it sold as much as it did. Got one used for around $60 last year and it's so much fun. Great console exclusives and still tremendously fun to play with friends. Used games for it are usually
