Sony today announced a stupendous landmark for its PlayStation 2 console. It now claims to have shipped 20 million consoles worldwide, demonstrating that sales are accelerating rapidly. In Europe, the console has sold 4.6 million units, while in Japan it has shipped 6.86 million, and another 8.55 million have gone in the US. Monthly production is now at 1.8 million units to cope with demand. With the recent drop in price across Europe and the exponential increase in UK sales we reported on last week, that's hardly surprising. Related Feature - PS2 sales jump
