While the slimline PSTwo is already tiny, Sony has reduced internal components even further. Shipping now, this updated hardware drops from 900 to 600 grams, while the AC adapter drops from 350 to 250 grams. But despite a massive weight reduction, the PSTwo's footprint has remained the same. So will this update mean anything to the public?
Sony will be making more money per console, the industry expects, as components are simplified in newer systems. But it also opens the door for a price reduction. So hopefully we'll see a drop from the $129.99 price in the not-so-distant future. Or not. We need something to do with our PS3 anyway, and playing PS2 titles is half its job already.
