PlayStation 2 now officially launched in Brazil, seriously

That’s not a typo on the title, you read that right. “New” and “PS2“can still be used in the same sentence, without being a smart-ass. ThePS3 has just turned three, and its nine-year-old older brother is stillmaking progress – believe it or not, Sony has just officially launchedthe PlayStation 2 in Brazil.
