Does anyone have any information about the slighlty upgraded PS2 that may be released in the U.S.? The one with the built in remote port, quieter fan, etc....Any info on a release date would be appreciated!

Thanks

It's been out. Just look for the PS2 Online Pack.

I thought EB confirmed that the product information for that SKU is incorrect, and that the bundle is just the old PS2 with a network adapter included.

Uh... wasn't it confirmed that the new "online pack" is NOT the new version of the PS2, but just the older PS2 bundled with the network adapter? The new PS2 should support progressive scan dvd playback, have a built-in infrared port, and no firewire.

That's what I have heard also.

The on-line pack just has a new model number for tracking but it's the same PS2 that they've been selling.

The PS2 with the added features may not be available until sometime this fall.

That's one of the limited edition colors that is sold for $315, comes with the stand. Not worth the money.

You sure that wasn't the PSX which includes DVD burner, satellite receiver, and something similar to TIVO?

From the Best Buy Link:

Product Features
Playback of DVD video recording format discs
Supports progressive scan to provide better picture quality

My Original PS2 does not support these features.

This is what I thought he was referring to:

http://www.us.playstation.com/purchase/ps2_le/

I don't think the PSX is available yet.

Find everything you need to experience the vast library of online games




Get connected and play, chat with or challenge anyone you want




Download new game updates

Is this from bestbuy? I don't believe this is out yet, since it includes the HDD, and I don't think they've even announced it for release here...

If it keeps the 199 pricetag, I might buy a second PS2 (since my old one seems to be dying)

I saw what he was talking about last night, but it seems they updated the details and it no longer says it today.
