Compact PS2 confirmed for Japanese release (UPDATED)

Sony Computer Entertainment has confirmed it will be releasing a remodelled PlayStation 2 featuring integrated power supply in Japan from November 22.

As previously reported, the new model will be the exact size as the current version, albeit it includes its own built-in AC adapter and weighs in noticeably lighter than its predecessor.

The new model will be available in three different colours; Charcoal Black, Ceramic White and Satin Silver, and costs approximately 16,000 yen – the same price as the current design.

Meanwhile, a new stand for the machine will also be available for 1,500 yen.
Currently, there is no word yet on a North American or European release, though MCV announced last week that the model is expected to hit the US early next year.

UPDATE:

Sony has confirmed to CVG that other regions will receive the model, but "not until 2008".

Stay tuned for more information as it breaks.
