PlayStation Evolution retrospective continues with PlayStation 2

Sony's retrospective look at PlayStation consoles in preparation for the PlayStation Meeting 2013 event continues with episode 2, which focuses on the PlayStation 2.

In addition to general specs, the video details the console's initial hit in 2000 and continued success. More than 150 million PlayStation 2 consoles sold worldwide with at least 10,000 games packing its library. Sony later launched peripherals for the game, including a network adapater that allowed users to play online and the EyeToy, which introduced motion play.

Check out the first episode of the retrospective, "The Beginning," here. Sony will continue to publish more episodes in preparation for its 2013 event, where it is expected to reveal its next-generation console.
