Seagate opens gate for PS2 hard-drive production.
Just today Sony has sealed a big deal with Seagate Technology so that the company would go into manufacturing PS2 hard-drives which will be called the HDD (Hard-Disk-Drive). This new HDD will of course sport a width (left and right) of 3.5 inches, which is ideal for the Playstation 2's port in the back that measures the same size. This baby will be able to store anywhere from 20-30 gigs, which is what most of the more advanced PCs have stored in their hard-drives. This will of course allow you to download MP3s, MPEG movies, pictures, possibly some sort of add-ons in the fashion of a patch, and maybe even games, all through the access of the trusty internet, which will be available this March in the form of a 56k modem.
It has not been said if Seagate will be doing the same for the Japanese PS2, since its hard-drive will be external because it doesn't have a 3 1/2 inch port in the back. Basically Sony has yet to make an official statement about this, but it is no rumor because this agreement between both companies has happened, now all we need is Sony to fill us in on the this great and very exciting story. It has also been reported that Seagate is in talks with Microsoft for their hard-drives as well.
