Regarding the value of the sealed PS2, @Torghira states that he received several proposals, but will not sell the console on Reddit. Furthermore, many people claim that as the console was highly popular, it is very easy to find, reducing its value as a collectible item.

Some people suggested continuing to keep the PS2 sealed, exactly as it was found. Who knows, maybe in another 20 years it will be worth a huge amount, like the iPhone 1, which has already received bids of US$63,000.

According to Jim Ryan, the PlayStation 2 sold 160 million units. However, the numbers have not yet been made official by Sony. The PlayStation 2 is the best-selling console in the world, but it could lose the position to the Nintendo Switch with 141 million units sold. Interestingly, nowadays rumors suggest that the Japanese company is eyeing a new laptop capable of playing PS4 games.
