New, Smaller PS2 Details
Finally, pictures and tech details. The new PS2 is much smaller than the old one; it's barely wider than a standard PS2 controller. It also has built-in Ethernet and modem ports. The release date is November 1 in US/Europe, and November 3. Whoa, we get something before Japan? Looks sweet. The only downside is the price. It's still $149.99, just like the old PS2.
Here's the original story at Endgadget, the incredibly boring official press release, and tons of photos.
In other gaming news, the dual-screen Nintendo DS will ship in America on November 21st and Japan on December 2nd. It will cost $149, not $200 as some places were initially reporting. I don't understand why America is suddenly getting gaming goodies before Japan, but I definitely like it.
