Sony Announces PSX
May 28, 2003

Sony unveiled it's latest console today, dubbed the PSX.  This console is basically an all-in-one package that includes the PS2, a 120GB hard drive, Ethernet adapter, TV/Satellite tuner, and a DVD-RW burner.  Since this console is being marketed as a set-top box instead of a game console, it's distribution will be handled by Sony's Home division instead of Sony Computer Entertainment.

There are several significant design differences between this console and the PS2 we all know and love.  First, the PSX will not support existing PSOne/PS2 memory cards; instead, it will support Sony memory sticks.  No word yet on how current PS2 owners will be able to transfer their save files to the new format.  Secondly, the controller ports are now located in the rear of the console.  Finally, the DVD drive is a slot-loading one.

The console is set to be released in Japan by the end of this year, with a worldwide release sometime in 2004.  A price has not yet been announced.
