Sony Japan Will No Longer Repair the PS2

Sony is preparing to discontinue its PlayStation 2 aftercare service in Japan, meaning console owners will no longer be able to send the aging machine in for fix should disaster strike.

If, like me, you hold on to your gaming hardware then you've probably got at least one PS2 in your collection. Although the console hasn't been in production for over five years, up until now Sony offered a fix clinic for diehard fans of the PS2.

Manufacturing of the device ended in 2012, six years after the follow-up PS3 console had been released.

Denmark pick futsal players to avoid Euro 2020 expulsion
We are prepared to play the worldwide matches this week and then we have time after the matches to negotiate the whole agreement. The DBU was also warned that Denmark would be barred from UEFA tournaments if it cancelled another match in the next four years.

Kotaku, drawing from Japanese outlet IT Media, reported that Sony Interactive Entertainment officially dropped support for the PlayStation 2 on August 31, 2018. It had closed telephone support lines for PS2 at the end of August. Some companies may even view this as an opportunity to branch out into PS2 repairs. It went on to become the best-selling game console ever.

There's no doubt: the PlayStation 2 was the most popular video game console of all time. In 2010, Sony also launched a Bravia KDL-22PX300 TV which has a PS2 built-in, but I'm not sure how the clinic would handle repairing one of those.
