    There’s not much to be said that hasn’t been said about the legendary PlayStation 2. Today marks the 22nd anniversary of the console’s release in Japan on March 4, 2000 (JST). It’s fitting that the day also marks the release of Gran Turismo 7 on PS5 in 2022. Gran Turismo 3 and 4 were some of the driving forces behind the PlayStation 2 and among the best selling games of all time on the platform. The console was home to many classic games such as Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, the .hack series, Kingdom Hearts, Tekken, and hundreds more. By the end of the PS2’s lifecycle, it became the best selling home console of all time with 155 million units sold worldwide. It also revolutionized media as a DVD player, changing the landscape of the market forever.
