Sony released their quarterly financial results overnight, and while nothing is completely shocking, Gizmodo points out one interesting fact: Playstation 2 sales have stayed the same.

Normally this wouldn’t exactly be good news, but the fact that the console is 11 years old AND still managed to pull off six million units sold by quarter three of this year AND close the unit sales gap between it and the Playstation Portable is mighty impressive. Also, add the fact that the biggest title for the gaming device, God of War II came out four years ago. The console hit the 150 million units sold mark this year as well, making it one of the most successful gaming systems ever. Admit it: Who out there still uses their PS2?
