The PlayStation 2 (プレイステーションツー Pureisutēshontsū?) often abbreviated as PS2, is a video game console developed by Sony Computer Entertainment in 2000. It competed with Sega's Dreamcast, Nintendo's GameCube and Microsoft's Xbox. Its successor was the PlayStation 3 and its predecessor was the PlayStation, for which no Sonic games were released (Sega was still manufacturing their own video game consoles at the time and even competed with the PlayStation with the Sega Saturn). Seven Sonic the Hedgehog series games were available for the system (including three from Sega featuring Sonic).

Sonic Heroes had camera and framerate problems while Sonic Mega Collection Plus had audio problems.
