Despite the Dreamcast still received support through 2001, the PS2 remained as the only sixth generation console with an eye on the future for over 6 months before it would face competition from new rivals in the form of Nintendo's Game Cube and Microsoft's Xbox.
Many analysts predicted a close three-way matchup among the three consoles.
The issue was compounded in Britain when a Russian oil tanker became stuck in the Suez Canal, blocking a ship from China carrying PS2s bound for the UK.
In September 2004, in time for the launch of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Sony revealed a newer, slimmer PS2.
In preparation for the launch of the new models (SCPH-700xx-9000x), Sony stopped making the older models (SCPH-3000x-500xx) to let the distribution channel empty its stock of the units.
The PS2 is the best-selling video game console of all time, having sold 159 million units estimated by IGN, Sony later manufactured several smaller, lighter revisions of the console known as Slimline models in 2004.
In 2006, Sony announced and launched its successor, the Play Station 3.
Sony also advertised heavily, and its online model had the support of Electronic Arts (EA); EA did not offer online Xbox titles until 2004.
