Sony ceased the production of the PlayStation 2 game console in January 2013. "At one point there were more PlayStation 2 consoles sold in Ireland per capita than in Sony’s native Japan.".
I haven't seen any correlations yet between the Celtic Tiger and this iconic game console that has preoccupied the life of so many in Ireland during the boom it seems. But 155 million units were sold worldwide and 51 million of them in the PAL region between 2001 and 2009.
How many of them were sold in Ireland?
