Hmm, it appears Sony wants a piece of Gameboy's action. Check this out. Here are some of the highlights.
I like this idea, though a PS3 announcement would have been better. I doubt anyone will buy a 2nd ps2 to get progressive scan and DVD-R capability. However for a first time buyer, this gives Sony a jump in the rankings.Starting in June, Sony will sell a revamped system that will be bundled with its popular online adaptor starting in June. The upgraded PS2 will continue to sell for $199.
The upgraded machine will also offer the ability to play re-writable DVDs and will offer progressive scan technology, which will improve the visual quality of movies watched on the console. The machine will also be quieter than current models.
Regarding the new Playstation Portable (PSP):
Hmm, wonder how many of the bells and whistles will be used in the final product.The PSP will utilize a new proprietary storage disk, offer a backlit screen and have a rechargeable battery. It will also offer 3D graphics and sound and will measure approximately 4.5 inches and offer a wide-screen viewing format. Additionally, the machine will come equipped with a USB 2.0 port, allowing high speed data transfers and will have a slot for Sony's memory stick data storage technology.
