if i remember correctly, they sold about 140 to 145 millions of ps2 lifetime worldwide.

I couldn't find the chart for it from vgchartz.com but for this generation, the ps4 has sold slightly over 100 million units.  Here is a pic chart of it:

145 million seems low for the PS2. Considering how long that was out. 12 years I think? But in all fairness,  they still make the PS3 and that came out in 2006.

153 million PS2s sold. That's a lot! Given the trends of manufacturing ending when the next gen is released, the PS3 will probably end late this year or early next year.
