PS2 is getting an internet solution, not from Sony though.

   One of the most exciting elements of Playstation 2 is its capabilities to connect gamers to the internet and allow us to play internet games just like we are doing already with our computers. Although PS2 won't be packaged with a modem, all of us know that a modem will be sold separately sooner or later, but we don't know when. So some smart fellas at SN Systems came up with a program that will allow game makers to use the USB port for internet connectivity.

   How? The games that are built to be compatible with this program called SN TCP/IP, will simply let gamers use regular PC USB modems that are readily available in stores today for much less than $100. The program and the USB modems could mean that there will be an internet solution on the launch day of the PS2, and that idea is catching the eyeballs of some developers, especially who have been heavily relying on PS2's modem capabilities to develop new games.

   This is some interesting stuff so we will keep you updated if anything comes up about this. For now lets hope that their idea works so we can play and surf on the web with our PS2s as soon as possible.
