New and improved version of PS2 to hit Japan.
As announced in Japan, a new version of the PS2 will be released. This new PS2, model SCPH-18000 is going to be a major improvement on the DVD aspect. The DVD driver will be built-in into the hardware, which will make life a lot easier. New playback features include slow motion, a-b repeat and increased track-scanning ability. Additionally a wireless DVD remote will come with the PS2.As we don' know the actual released date of this in America, we do know in Japan, December 8th for 39800 Yen ($360.76). We probably won't see this in the US, but lets hope we will.
