It seems it has been delayed. But in Japan only. According to IGN the North American version is still on track for November 2004.

Oh, and here is the LINK for proof (article is fairly recent - September 17, 2004).

Talking Re: PlayStation 2......2

So they made integrated lan/modem for online play but no harddrive to play FinalFantasy , small size does look very impressive they should have made it Laptop/Notebook like then you could play on the go PS 2 games

Most of the online games don't use the HD anyways.

Most? More like all but 1, well maybe 2...did they ever actually have any extra Socom 2 content you could download onto the harddrive? Oh and Resident Evil Outbreak allowed you to cache the game on the harddrive, supposedly loading times without it are horrendous.

Yeah the HD is basically useless but I hear there is program that allows you to back-up your games on it, so that may be the only usefull use for it unless you really must play final fantasy which it comes with.


This pic really gives a view of how small it is. Thats alot of shrinkage.

Damn I hate certain good games that come out only on the console (ie. ikaruga, halo2...)

But the new PSTwo deffinitely is hot, (wonder how hot it gets).
You know, I never actually got into the whole GTA hype. I played a bit of GTAIII and few missions in GTA VC and while I certainly appreciate the open ended gameplay, I just can't see why every pre-teen is going bananas over GTA. GranTurismo series same thing. The game looks great, lots of cars, but IMO too much hype, it plays like crap compared to some other racing games.

Considering it doesn't really have a video processor, and that all it's major functions are centered on one set of processors, adding PS2 functionality to a PC would cost almost as much as the PS2 itself. The only thing they'd save money on is the casing, input/outputs, and DVD drive, which are probably the cheapest components in the system. Not to mention there's all the R&D that goes into making a PS2/PC hybrid machine fully compatable with both.
