Sony's New PS2

Sony Corporation has shown today a slimmer book-sized PlayStation 2 game console, which weighs just 900 grams, less than half the current model. Its width now only 1.1 inches, down from 3.07 inches for regular-sized PlayStation 2 models.

It'll cost about the same as the regular-sized PS 2 in the U.S. and Europe.

The smaller PlayStation 2 has all regular PlayStation 2 functions such as playing CDs and DVDs.
Besides, the new PS2 will also have more functionality, with an Ethernet port built into the device.

New PlayStation 2 model will go on sale in North America, Europe and Japan in November 2004.

The original Sony's PlayStation has sold more than 100 million units worldwide since its launch in 2000.
