This ends months of speculation that tight suppies of the current PS2 had to mean that a new PS2 was on its way.

PlayStation 2 Gets New Look - Smaller, Slimmer and Network Ready

London, 21 September 04 – Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) today announced that a completely new look PlayStation® 2 (SCPH-70000 CB) will become available throughout Europe on 1st November 2004.

While inheriting the basic functions and design philosophy of the current PlayStation 2 (SCPH-50000), the internal architecture has been completely redesigned, resulting in a slimmer and more lightweight design. Internal volume has been reduced by 75%, weight has been halved, and thickness trimmed down to 2.8 cm (thickness of current model is 7.8 cm). Equipped with an integrated Ethernet port for network gaming, the new PlayStation 2 sets new standards in the fusion of design and functionality.

Since its launch in November 2000, PlayStation 2, now in its fifth year has reached a consumer installed base of nearly 24 million units in the PAL territories. The exciting new design, combined with the price reduction in August to €149 will position PlayStation 2 for ever greater success over the next half of its life.

The new design PlayStation 2 will be supported by a lineup of exciting and innovative new titles, scheduled for launch in time for the peak Christmas period.

There are already over 1,000 games titles already available for PlayStation 2, and many more scheduled for launch before the end of the year, including SCEE published titles such as Gran Turismo 4, Getaway: Black Monday, Singstar Party, EyeToy® Play 2 and Killzone, and over 150 more titles from leading third party publishers.

Commenting at the launch of the new design, David Reeves, President of SCEE said, "We did it for PlayStation and now this time for PlayStation 2. This totally redesigned, network ready model will demonstrate that PlayStation has once again the design flair and innovation that has made PlayStation the world's best loved and most successful games console. We are confident that the combination of a new, more affordable price point, the great Christmas lineup and now this stunning new PlayStation 2 model will encourage a whole new generation of consumers to experience the fun of PlayStation".
