    Theregister.co.uk has a news on Sony PS2 power adapter recall: "a number of AC adaptors, made between August and December 2004, and supplied with black, slimline PS2 models SCPH70002, 70003 and 70004 could "overheat", potentially harming consumers. Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) said the company had received 38 reports of adaptors overheating, including 19 reports of units that melted, four claims of minor property damage, two of minor burns and one of a minor electrical shock" Sony shipped 843,000 faulty units to US alone so overall it could be millions, This reminds me of xbox recall a few months ago.. Coincidence? (Come on in an share your conspiracy theory ;) )
