Hitting Europe in 2008

Earlier this week, we brought you the news that Sony are to launch a new PS2 model in Japan later this month and now they've confirmed that lighter console will now be launched in all SCEE terrotories early next year.

While inheriting the functions of the current PlayStation 2, the internal design architecture of the new system has been completely overhauled, resulting lighter in weight. The newly designed PlayStation 2 will have a built-in AC adapter, further improving users’ convenience to enjoy various entertainment contents anywhere at home, reads the press release.

The Playstation 2 has been on sale for 8 years and has sold approximately 120 million units. The company are confident that the new model will also sell well and and have assured consumers that they'll continue to expand the line-up of games next year. They've also made the decision not to drop the recommended retail price of the console in any territory. This means that the new PS2 will sell for the same price as the last model, which currently retails online for between £70 -90.

Probably a misprint in the press release, rather than Hexus' coverage, but:

“Color Name/Product Code… …Stain Silver/SCPH-90000 SS”

is not an appealing colour.
