Top 10 Highest Selling Games on the Playstation 2

The Playstation 3 has been behind in sales compared to the other next gen systems but a lot of Nintendo Wii and Xbox 360 fanboys fail to point out that the Playstation 2 continues to sell a lot of games. So far these are the 10 Playstation 2 games that have sold the most copies.
10. Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy
Copies Sold – 4.2 million
The Playstation 2 has many popular platformer games and several of them have titles that are something like somebody and somebody else. However, the original Jax and Daxter game is the most popular game of this sort.

9. Kingdom Hearts
Copies Sold – 4.29 million
The Kingdom Hearts took one of the most beloved video game series, Final Fantasy, and mixed it with one of the most beloved movie studios, Disney.

8. Madden NFL 2005
Copies Sold – 4.35 million
I’ve always preferred the NCAA Football series to the Madden series but it’s impossible to deny the popularity of the Madden series. Madden NFL 2005 has sold more copies than any other sports game on the Playstation 2.

7. Final Fantasy X
Copies Sold – 6.6 million
The Final Fantasy series is more popular in Japan than it is in America but the sales combined are good enough to land Final Fantasy X number 7 on the list. Final Fantasy X might be one of the last really great traditional role playing game as most video game companies are starting to branch out to different types.

6. Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty
Copies Sold – 7 million
The Metal Gear Sold franchise took the stealth game to a whole new level and Solid Snake is one of the baddest heroes in video game history.

5. Gran Turismo 4
Copies Sold – 9.53 million
When discussing the most popular video games of all-time it’s not likely that the Gran Turismo series will be one of the games that comes up but the series has proven that it is one of the top sellers.

4. Grand Theft Auto III
Copies Sold – 12 million
Grand Theft Auto III was extremely popular due to the nature of the game. In Grand Theft Auto III players could roam just about everywhere and do just about anything. The game had a great story that you could follow but also had tons of side quests.

3. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
Copies Sold – 12 million
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas barely passed the original Grand Theft Auto II in sales but couldn’t live up to the sales of Vice City.

2. Gran Turismo 3: A-Spec
Copies Sold – 14.87 million
There seems to be a pretty common pattern here. The first highly hyped sequel, in this case Gran Turismo 3, does great in sales while the next sequel, Grand Theft Auto 4, drops a bit.

1. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
Copies Sold – 15 million
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is a fun game but fans were right to buy more copies of this game. The first Grand Theft Auto III is the superior game and man that 80’s soundtrack rocks!
