Japan gets new model PlayStation 2

Integrated power supply, but no price cut

Sony is to release a new model PlayStation 2 in Japan, with an integrated power supply and cosmetic changes.

Released on November 22, SCEJ claims the new model is lighter due to an overhaul of the design architecture. It will also feature a built-in AC adaptor.

Despite rumours, the system will not benefit from a price cut this year, as it will still retail for JPY 16,000 (EUR 96).

The eight-year-old system will have a cosmetic makeover, coming in Charcoal Black, Ceramic White and Satin Silver, with peripherals to match.
