Sony ships more PS2 Hard Drives.
With Sony’s first set of hard disk drives quickly selling out in Japan, they have moved hastily in reply with the vast demand of HDD’s in the public. As the first set of 10,000 units were sold in a matter of minutes, Sony knew that a response to this matter was certain. Playstation.com will officially be re-opening pre-orders for the Japanese PS2 and are predicted to sell out in the same fashion. The second run of units will be delivered August 3; one week after the first shipment arrives on July 27. Sony’s rapid development is obviously a foreshadowing of their plans for the future. Expect Sony to be as responsive with near releases of PS2 peripherals.
