PS2 resurrected for new LCD TV
Sony has unveiled a new 22-inch LCD Bravia TV with an inbuilt PS2 as the Japanese company targets retro gamers ahead of the Christmas period.
With the recently released Gran Turismo 5 currently pushing sales of the Sony PlayStation 3, its now dated predecessor has been resurrected and built into the base of the new Sony Bravia KDL-22PX300 to offer former PS2 fans a new chance to break out their classic gaming titles.
Whilst the PlayStation 2 will only allow for standard definition gameplay and DVD playback the 22-inch LCD TV is capable of displaying 720p footage and comes equipped with a host of connectivity options including four HDMI slots, an inbuilt Freeview tuner, three USB ports and Scart, VGA and component-video connectors. Bringing the Console touting TV further up to spec, the new Bravia features an Ethernet port allowing for the access of internet based on-demand content.
As PS3 consoles haven’t been PS2 back compatible for some time, the KDL-22PX300, available to buy in the UK now for a smidge under £200, will allow gamers to once again enjoy the games and console that was once so dominant.
