With the PlayStation 2 now a 13-year-old console and the PlayStation 4 coming up later this year, it may surprise you that the console has yet to have its final title released.
Being virtually the most successful console of all time, it was only in January that Sony officially announced that the console would finally be discontinued, and it seems now that the console will finally get its final title released this year — with a version of FIFA 14 coming out for the format in September in the Western world, it will be the last game ever released on the console, with March’s release of Final Fantasy XI expansion Seekers of Adoulin marking the last PS2 release for the Japanese market.
Though likely being developed simply so EA can claim to have developed the last ever PS2 game, it’s still stunning to know that the console has been supported for well over a decade now. At least after September’s Fifa 14 release, the tired and beautiful ol’ thing can finally rest in peace.
Thanks for serving us well, PS2. You’ve been a good companion.
