    Sony have gone the route of the PS1 by releasing a smaller model of the PS2, the SCPH-70000, which will be released in Europe and NA on November 1st.

    Overall, the internal volume of the system has been reduced by 75%, the weight of the device has been cut in half, and the thickness of the system has been trimmed by approximately 60%. Its overall size is around that of your typical hardcover book -- putting it perfectly in line with its rumored consumer codename, the PSTwo.

    performance should be just the same. however this new model might not be modable for the next few months, so if that's important to you, i'd go for the silver one.

    Not at all, technology has moved a long way and lots of what was seperate in the original can now be put on a single chip.

    Because they can?

    Looks sleek as feck.

    In 4-5 years they've reduced the size of the components to that, what'll the PS3 be like?

    Wow, I like it very much. It looks so sweet. :P

    But I don't think I will buy it as I still have a X-Box to buy for PES4 and like Ike said modding won't probably be possible for the first time.

    you can usually build a transistor-based component with half the size after 18 months (Moore's Law).

    I'm not sure what to do, if I wait for PS2two, it'll mean buying GTA and then having to wait for the new PS2 to be released, but if the performance is pretty similar between the Silver and PS2two then it should be the silver one, BUT the new PS2 looks soooo sweet!!!!

    I won't be modding my new PS2, I only play WE & GTA on it, everything else is on the X-Box!!

    What to do????

    i'd get the new one if you don't need it modded right away and the price is ok. waiting one more week for GTA should be possible. ;)

    i imagine it could be more silent than the normal ps2 as well.

    Personally I'd only consider getting one if performance had been improved, otherwise I see no point :)

    As many people have said, this will be a fairly pointless project for Sony as 'many' people already own a PS2. Unless they release a LCD screen to promote its portability like the PSOne, having a console few centimetres larger wouldnt really make a difference at home.

    The performance will be identical, as for waiting, you realise you'd only have to wait 2 days right? :)

    Surely it'd need a mod to play WE, and surely you'd rather play PES4 on XBL anyway? If I was buying a new PS2 anyway, I'd definitely grab the smaller one.

    I'm on my third PS2 at the moment, if I ever need to get a new one, I'll get the new smaller one. ;)

    Don't forget the smaller one will have an external brick type power supply. Also i would think the modding potential is pretty good, especially in the swap disc stakes as apparently it's toploading now.

    2 Days is a lifetime in the world of GTA.....................only kidding!!

    I'll probably wait and buy the new smaller PS2, it'll look a lot sexier!!

    my ps2 is fucked. it doesn't play black or blue dicks and sometimes nothing at all. this could be exactly what i have been waiting for.

    ps. will shops still buy my ps2 if the guarentee sticker has been removed? if thats the case then i will have to sell it someone else.
