New PlayStation 2 Revision Announced for Japan

Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. in Japan officially announced a new PlayStation 2 revision. The new hardware will be similar to the existing PS2 Slimline console, but integrates the power supply unit inside the console rather than relying on an external power brick. As suspected, the new model, designated with number SCPH-90000, experiences a slight weight gain over the previous SCPH-79000 model due to the addition of the PSU. The SCPH-90000 weighs 720 grams, while the SCPH-79000 is only 600 grams. The new SCPH-90000 will come with an improved vertical stand that demands a much smaller footprint than the previous model. The new stand is also sold separately for approximately $13. Internals and other specs of the SCPH-90000 remain unchanged.

i have to say the ps2 was the best of the last generation consoles for my money, the xbox came to late and nintendo had some great games but the controller sucked.

I would be all over these, or any of the slims, if my PS2 wasn't modded and most of my games weren't played off the hard drive...

This is still probably my favorite console of all time, with the SNES right behind it. Lots of good role playing games, and many other good times and memories with other games. May have to snag one of these just for the hell of it. (Never owned a slim-line)

I never knew the Slim line PS2's had a power brick like the Xbox 360....

Haven't most of the game devs stopped making games for the PS2?
