Default PlayStation 2......2

Seems the PS2 will be getting a smaller design. Sold my PS2 so I will be picking this one up. IMO the bigger one looks better but I would rather the smaller one for space.

Damn, that thing IS tiny. There were reports that Sony was coming out with a new PS2 model (I guess this would be the PStwo?), but I didn't expect it to be THAT small. Wow, can't believe they fit everything in there...although I have the suspicion that the harddrive addon won't be an option anymore, sadly. And are the modem and ethernet ports on the front now?

Well I hope when they release full details they will HOPEFULLY have added the harddrive to the new model. They had that PSX thing which had many extra things built in so I would hope we could at least get the built in HDD.

No more tray, which I actually kinda like. But jesus is that thing small, it's barely bigger than the disc!

Here's what IGN had to say about that:


What's particularly interesting about the new SCPH-70000, however, is that it cannot use the Hard Drive (HDD) needed for games such as Final Fantasy XI, and well, Final Fantasy Xi's expansion packs.

Meh, IMO PS2 sucks, no matter how small you make it. I'm about to put mine up for sale, haven't touched it in years. Xbox and PC satisfies all my gaming needs now.

I'll be thinking about you when I am playing GTA:SA on the PSTwo

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).
