We just reported about a rumor on the weekend that Sony would release a new stream lined Playstation 2 design. The rumor targeted a 2008 release date. This date might be true for other regions. Japanese PS2 fans will get the new Sony PS2 SCPH-90000 already on November 22nd for 16,000 Yen (~$140).
The price of the new Sony PS2 is the same as for the former design SCPH-79000 in Japan. The rumor talked about Sony going to offer that new Playstation 2 design for under $100. At least in Japan, consumers have to pay the same price. Sony also sells the vertical stand for extra money. The vertical stand for the new Sony PS2 sells for 1,500 Yen (~$13).
The new Sony PS2 SCPH-90000 comes in white, silver and black as the former PS2 console was already available in Japan.
The Measurements of the new PS2 are 230 x 28 x 152mm and the weight is 720g. The dimensions of the new PS2 SCPH-90000 are exactly the same as the last slim PS2 design. Only the weight is lower. So the only real difference that you will actually see with this PS2 is that you do not have a power supply lying around.
