The end of Playstation 2
So its been announced that Sony will no longer repair the Playstation 2. In fairness to them they have continued to support the device for 18 years, it was released way back in March 2000.
It is still the most popular console ever with over 150 million consoles sold worldwide. Its mad to think they were still manufacturing the devices in 2012, although the Playstation 3 was released in 2006, this shows how popular this was. I know someone that recently bought one off eBay with about 30 games for £50 as his one broke and he still enjoyed the games.
So now if one breaks you will have to see if there is a third party repairer, or purchase an old device of eBay or something and try it yourself.
