Jumbo Electronics, the world’s largest distributor of Sony products has announced the launch of the new Play Station 2 Gaming Console. Almost 75% smaller in size than the original PS2, the new PS2 is just 2.8 cm thick and comes with a built-in Ethernet port for networked gaming. The new model inherits the basic functions and design philosophy of the current PS 2, but the internal design architecture has been completely overhauled, resulting in a slimmer and more lightweight design. The new PS2 is roughly a quarter of the size of the old one, coming in at 9 inches by 6 inches, with a miniscule depth of 1.1 inches. Total weight has dropped from 2.2 kilos to just under 910 grams. This makes the new PS2 as small as a hardcover book, making it easier to carry around and enjoy games and DVD videos anytime, anywhere Equipped with an integrated Ethernet port for network gaming, the new PlayStation 2 sets new standards in the fusion of design and functionality. The front of the console has two memory-card slots, two controller ports, two USB ports, the flip-top open button, and the reset/on switch. When playing DVDs or CDs, the menu has been tweaked a bit and has newly designed buttons for the shuffle and playlist functions. The updated version of PS2 can not only play original PlayStation software on the system, but also enjoy the enhanced graphics of a range of new games developed specifically for the New PS2 Priced at US$203 (AED 749), the electronics retailer is giving out a free Formula 1 2004 game for the promotion. The gaming console is currently available across Jumbo’s 23 showrooms in the UAE.
