31 Dec 12 The End of an Era? Japan stops Playstation 2 production

Back in 2000, countless moms, dads, and teenagers stood in line for hours to be among the first to take home a brand new Playstation 2. Almost immediately, the gaming system sold out across the world, opening up plenty of opportunities for scammers to swindle desperate parents in fake eBay deals.  Months later, once supply caught up with demand, millions of homes sported a brand new, state-of-the-art gaming system. The PS2 not only featured amazing graphics unlike any seen before, it also doubled as a DVD player. Back then, DVD players were also relatively new, so this was a big deal for those looking to save a little money by combining two systems into one. Kind of like how now the PS3 also doubles as a Blu-Ray player.
