20 million Playstation 2 have been sold
The Playstation 2 has been in stores for 10 months now. During this period, Sony's game console was sold 20 million times, which equates to an impressive 60,000 consoles per day. An impressive number.
This means that the Playstation 2 was able to find more than three times as many owners in the same period of time as the previous version when it was launched. On the occasion of this anniversary, Sony is now launching a special edition of the Playstation 2 in Japan, which comes in five stylish metallic colors. You can choose from Snow White, Super Red, Light Yellow, Metallic Blue and Metallic Silver. This special edition should also be available in Europe and therefore Germany at a later date. It remains to be seen how the sales figures will develop with the launch of the Xbox, which Microsoft will be released for sale in Europe on March 14, 2001.
