Black PS2 Console Only £69.99 Delivered Or Less Using Voucher Etc.

While inheriting the basic functions and design philosophy of the current PlayStation 2, the internal design architecture has been completely overhauled, resulting in a slimmer and more lightweight design. Internal volume has been reduced by 75%, overall weight has been halved, and thickness trimmed down to 2.8 cm (thickness of current model is 7.8 cm). Its size is almost as small as a hardcover book, making it easier to carry around and enjoy games and DVD videos anytime, anywhere.
Equipped with an integrated Ethernet port for network gaming, the new PlayStation 2 sets new standards in the fusion of design and functionality. The launch of the new network ready PlayStation 2 will further expand the universe of on-line gaming, as more and more on-line titles become available worldwide.
Gaining overwhelming support from a wide range of users from all over the world, more than 72 million units of PlayStation 2 have been shipped as of today. Strongly supported by software developers and publishers, PlayStation 2 is indisputably the most popular computer entertainment system in the world and the new design will position it for ever greater success over the next half of its life.

Oooh good spot.
With the PS3 either having backwards compatibility with PS2 crippled or having none at all, an actual PS2 console is essential if you wish to play all of the great games that are out or coming out for the machine.

Hot.

Rumour has it that Sony are re-releasing the PS2 next year at around £75. That would explain why they decided to remove the BC from the current PS3's ;-)

According to Engadget.com the new PS2 is already on sale in Japan. It includes an integrated power supply but no price cut.

Japanese prices are no real indication as sony could sell dog poo and they would lap it up over there. Microsoft on the other hand could drop their 360 prices to 5yen and still have no takers. Such is Sonys strength in their home market.

Totally incorrect I am afraid. Sonys reputation back home is shot to ******y right now. The Japanese friends I have tell me of the 'Sony effect' which is the well known problem of consumer products breaking down the day after the warranty runs out. The Japanese know that Sony are just not as good these days as they were in the 80s.

Also, the new PS2 is a false economy IMO. An integrated power supply is the root of all evil. When you next have a power block die for your existing slim PS2, you can simply replace it with another one for small change. If the power supply dies in the new PS2, you have a buy a new PS2 (unless it is under warranty). Me, I am going to get another cheap slim PS2 and mod it so that I have a good backup machine to play my import games on.

Mate works for Sony; apparently Sony's sales targets for the PS2 for the 1st quarter of 2008 are so aggresive/high that the price will have to be extremely good to shift them. It isn't though being released here till after xmas to avoid hitting PS3 sales.
And apparently despite the internal PSU, it will be smaller again than the current Slimline PS2.

don't know about you but i always prefer an internal power suplly for practical and aesthetic reasons. i hate all those transformer blocks. i think you must be one of the few who prefer a transformer lying outside the machine.

Well I got stung by internal power supplies in consoles many years ago when the Dreamcast was still on sale. Its power supply was notorious for failing quite often and the number of machines I had to open to replace power supplies at the time was unbelievable. What a pain when you could, by having an external power supply, just switch the power block for a new one, leaving the console in one piece with warranty intact.

So these days, I prefer external power supplies on video games machines. Everything else can have them inside :)

if the warranty is intact then just claim it on the warranty - no need to open the thing. but since we are on the third generation ps2 now i don't think the power supply is that complex - they won't run particularly hot since according to specs the draw considerably less current. and if the psu does go and it is out of warranty then just open it up and replace it; you are out of warranty so it doesn't matter if you open the case. original psu power supply boards are only £15 so i can't imagine new psu power boards be much different in price.

but each to his own i suppose.

That assumes some sort of electrical skill, most people I know don't even have the knowledge to wire a mains plug:thinking:

true.

the new SKU uses as much current as a normal music system which have never come with an external transformer. furthermore, the original ps2 never had a transformer block. i, for one, am sick of all these bloody transformer blocks which get into everything electrical these days.

not having a transformer block is a step in the right direction - especially for something that draws as little current as a ps2.
