The same colours where the PS3 will be available in, in the end. Also silver in the future. It was seen on the first pictures from the PS3 2 years ago

That white one is sexy!

Unfortunately if I'm going to drop ~~$100~~ to play PS2 games, I might as well drop $500 for a PS3 and get many more years of new games out of it as well as the BC. Ah well!

yup, that was my logical reasoning for getting one.

I expected a massive redesign from all the talk of "radical redesign" but its a nice update all the same (though I must admit I was hoping to see a PS2 which had more in common with a CD diskman than a games console), internal power supplys are the way every piece of electronics should be.

At 16000 yen though I can't see it having much much of a price difference in the UK though as they are already only £90 here so its gonna be a price cut of maybe £5 which I can't see having a big difference in sales.

This is awesome...i forgot does the wii have an internal power supply? I know the xbox 360 does not...

If sony can bring this over here and sale it at $99....the PS2 will live forever...they are the only ones who can support 3 consoles...PS2, PSP, PS3...

I need a ps2 because someone doesn't know how to get DDR and GH1 and 2 to work properly with the ps3 lawlz.
