For those of us with multiple shelves of stereo, TV, DVD, TIVO & Satellite equipment, Sony has introduced its new slimmer, smaller model of the PS2. The good news is they won;t be charging more for it than the original PS2.

The redesign is part of Sony's strategy to maintain the PS2's lead over rival consoles. The new PS2 is about half the size of the existing model and will sell for the same price. The new PS2 is mostly identical to current models. But the internal volume has been reduced by 75%, meaning it is half the weight and less than half the thickness of the existing console. It also now comes with a built-in Ethernet port to allow gamers to play online.
