Sonny announced that its total global shipments of the Sony PlayStation 2 had exceed 100 million units since its launch in March of 2000.

The breakdown of shipments of the PS2 included 40.65 million to North America, 37.14 million to Europe, and 22.22 million to Asia.

By contrast, the original PlayStation took 9.5 years to ship 100 million units. At this rate, do you think they’ll ship 100 million PlayStation 3 units in 2.5 years?

Congratulations Sony!
