There is a PStwo, it's just Sony didn't call it that even though everyone else already does :-) (Cue a repeat of the "PSX" argument. Better yet, don't).

Anyway, the "original" PS2 is also still sold AFAIK - Square/Enix would revolt otherwise (FF requires the harddisk).

I imagine they are just clearing stock, but it is a shame about the hard drive. If they'd allowed fitting of a laptop drive even it would have been so sweet.

I've never had a console modified, but I'd love to be able to store ps2 games for quicker load times.

So just buy one of the "old-style" ones, throw in a mod chip and HDD, and get a boot loader.

I was considering a modded v12... nothing like being able to just pop in whatever you'd like to play and have it boot. The booting from HDD thing is very tempting though, even though I don't like the older models much. I love the design of the new one, so it's a shame they took out the ability for HDD add-on. Hopefully Hong Kong will be able to come up with something eventually.

I thought the YM2610 had only 4 FM voices to the YM2610B's 6, while the SSG/ADPCM layout remained the same.

<3 YM2151! Even into the 90's it was the centerpiece of some great soundtracks, including my personal favorite arcade soundtrack!

There's always something to talk about while waiting for a release :p Or an M1 Targets and To-Do List update, heh.

Yeah, the games NMK did for Jaleco had some underrated YM2151 heroics, notably St. Dragon.

Yes of course that is an alternative, but Sony have annoyingly made the new PS2 look almost as cute as the game cube :-)

I am, apparently, the only person in the universe who thinks the GC design is arse, its so tall that it wont fit in most hi-fi units and yet still lets you open the lid in a spirited attempting to take all the skin off your fingers every time you change a disc...

Well, yes, most people don't actually play consoles in a hi-fi unit. (I stack mine in an unused space in it and pull them out for actual use - my A/V receiver has front-panel S-Video and audio jacks so it works out great).
