The best-selling videogame platform is the PlayStation 2, which sold 157,680,000 units from its release on 4 March 2000 to when it was discontinued on 4 January 2013, according to sales figures as of 5 March 2019.
These massive sales figures were taken from VGChartz on 5 March 2019 after the 19th anniversary of the PS2's release and six years after it was discontinued.
The success of the PlayStation 2 is owed in part to its massive library of games, its backwards compatibility with original PlayStaion games and hardware, its built in DVD player and its potential for online connectivity.
