PSTwo compared to Xbox
IGN got their hands on the new, tiny PSTwo, and took a couple of pictures with it next to an Xbox and the Xbox controller, which is almost larger than the entire PSTwo.
They said overall the system is great and tiny. It’s virtually silent, compared to the wind tunnel sound of the original PS2. The smaller size does make a few accessories obsolete however, like the Hard drive and multi-tap add-ons. However, it does include an ethernet port and modem, which used to be bulky accessories.
The smaller design also makes dealing with the Logitech wireless controller adapter awkward, since the adapter actually props the PSTwo up off of the ground.
Another thing of note is that the warranty on the PSTwo is now 1 year instead of 90 days like the original PS2, so your PSTwo should last under warranty until the PS3 comes out.
