PS2 Looks Set To Lose Its Crown

With approximately 135 million units sold, the PS2 has been enjoyed by people all over the globe for more than a decade.

It’s held the accolade of “best selling console of all time” for years but it now looks like that is under threat…from Nintendo…and no, it’s not the Wii. The Nintendo DS is predicted to overtake the PS2 later this year. As of March 2010 the handheld console has shifted 129 million units.


It is worth bearing in mind that these numbers include sales of every iteration of the DS. For those of you who are wondering, that covers the original DS, the DSLite, the DSi and the DSi XL. It will no doubt also include the 3DS once that’s released.

The Wii is currently sitting as the best selling 7th gen console by a long way. I’m sure you all have an opinion so let’s hear your thoughts on Nintendo’s ability to sell sell sell!
