Sony staff is not superstitious. They have today announced that the turbo charged version of the PS2, known as the PSX, will hit the stores as early as December the 13th of the year 2003. It seems that Sony didn’t want to miss out the Christmas sales with their high end product. Unfortunately, the western part of the world has to wait a little bit further as the December release is targeted to Japan only.
In case one didn’t know, the PSX is the new high end device by Sony, which is based on the PS2 hardware. It features a digital TV tuner, DVD recordable drive, a hard drive (various size options) and DVR (Digital Video Recorder) abilities.
A PSX with a 160-gigabyte HDD will sell for 79,800 yen ($731) and be able to record up to 204 hours of television, the company said. It will also sell a 250-gigabyte version for 99,800 yen.Source: Forbes.com
