When the PlayStation 2 was first released in 2000, it came packaged with a wired Dualshock 2 controller. Every PS2 sold, including the Slim PS2 released in 2004, was packaged with wired controllers. Sony would not release a wireless controller until the Sixaxis for the PS3 in 2006. Nevertheless, there are wireless solutions for cordless gaming with the PS2.
