PlayStation 2 has long reigned as the best-selling video game console of all time, with no imminent threat of losing that title. Despite the runaway success of PlayStation 4 over the last five-plus years, Sony would have to sell over 10 million units a year for the next six years to overtake its own top spot — a massive improbability, if not an impossibility, given next-gen consoles may launch in 2020.
