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.


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

Stay tuned for more information as it breaks.
