Video game consoles (including handhelds)

And before the "lol wikipedia" post commences, I've added in this link as well to support it.

Correct me if i'm wrong, but could this be considered factual now?

Sony has finally stopped manufacturing new PS2s so I suppose its only a matter of time, if it hasn't happened already.

Not entirely, but that is because Sony has been playing topsy-footy with their numbers. The last outright number they gave was a year and a half ago, and they have been bundling their numbers together with the PS3 since.

Yes...and no...

According to VG Chartz...
DS: 154.31 million
PS2: 153.68 million


However, if we go by Wikipedia's individual pages...
PS2: 155.1 million
DS: 153.67 million


Yet looking at Wikipedia's "Best Selling" page...
DS: 153.67 million
PS2: 153.6 million


So...which one is it? Well, as it turns out, the PS2 still has a very slight lead. The latest numbers for each system were:
PS2: 153.68 million
DS: 153.67 million


However, the PS2 is no longer being sold, while the DS is. Should the DS sell more than 10,000 units in January across all regions, it will be the best-selling.
