PS2 HDD prepares for early 2002 release

  It has been announced that Sony’s hard disk drive will be released in early 2002 for the PS2. Although specific pricing for the unit is undetermined, the prices in Japan should give an idea of what to expect. The external hard drive sells for about $150, while the internal hard drive goes for about $144. The internal version will be the one released in Japan according to SCEA.

   Also recently announced by SCEA, its Ethernet/modem adapter is still on schedule for release in North America. With a November release date given, the unit carries a suggested retail price of $40. The main features that involve the adapter include broadband and dial-up Internet connections, and it will give users access to services such as e-mail, instant messaging, browsing via a Netscape browser, and streaming audio and video in conjunction with the hard drive unit. America Online, Macromedia, and Real Networks will be the main sources to provide the service necessary with THPS3 and SOCOM: US Navy Seals already being listed as compatible with the Ethernet/modem adapter. Stay tuned to PSX Extreme, as we will bring you further coverage.
