Interact to release PS2 DexPort.
Popular accessory developer Interact has recently announced plans to release a peripheral for use with the PlayStation 2, which enables gamers to transfer saved PlayStation 2 data from their memory card to a PC hard drive. The company has dubbed the accessory the Interact DexPort; the device uses a USB connector and the packaged software to communicate with the personal computer. There are several possible uses for the upcoming peripheral, as the device would make it possible for gamers to e-mail game data, save the data for future use, or even post times or scores on websites.
"DexPort offers PS2 gamers some unique opportunities beyond storing and managing many game saves," boasted John Hays, director of GameShark product development for InterAct Accessories. He elaborated, "The ability to e-mail saves to friends, along with downloadable saves from GameShark.com, adds a level of intricacy which is currently unavailable for the PS2."
