New European milestone for PS2

As the console enters its sixth year on the market, the figure takes PS2 past the 39 million benchmark set by its predecessor, the PlayStation. At this stage in PSOne’s lifespan that console had shifted only 33 million units.

“We are extremely proud of the continuing success of PS2,” said SCEE President and CEO David Reeves. ''In the last month or so sales of PS2 throughout Europe and PAL territories have exceeded 100,000 units per week, which is extremely pleasing and proves the format is as popular now as it ever was.

“Through the continual development of new and innovative gaming titles, in particular the social gaming phenomena such as EyeToy, SingStar and Buzz, PS2 will remain the computer entertainment system of choice for new and experienced gamers alike.''

Sony has also announced that PS2 now has over 2,000 software titles available in Europe, and a further 50 are due out in time for Christmas.
