As of March 31st, 2009 the PS2 is selling for an MSRP of $99. Sony's Playstation 2 is the most successful console of all time with huge sales all around the world. In 2005 there was a major hardware revision to the Playstation 2 that made the device much smaller, but also took away compatibility with the HDD. Released in 2000 the PS2 has seen one of the largest variety of games released appealing to everyone from the most hardcore niche audiences to the expanded casual audience that the Wii has taken over. The console continues to see new game releases in 2009 though the rate has decreased compared to its prime.
