PS2 in time for the year-end peak-selling season. The new model is in stores now for a suggested retail price (SRP) of $129.99/$139.99 CND while supplies last.

The new limited edition silver PlayStation 2 system features the same, ultra-sleek design and functions of the current PlayStation 2 including access to the large catalog of PlayStation 2 and PlayStation software titles as well as DVD and CD playback, digital surround sound, two memory card slots and an integrated Ethernet port for network gaming. To complete the package a limited edition silver DUALSHOCK analog controller for the PlayStation 2 is also included.

PlayStation 2 is the most popular gaming platform in North America, Europe/PAL territories and Japan/Asia—the only system to enjoy such widespread global success. The company expects the release of this limited edition silver PlayStation 2 to fuel demand even further: to date, more than 111 million PlayStation 2 units and more than 1.12 billion pieces of software for the PlayStation 2 have shipped worldwide, making it the fastest-selling gaming platform on the market.

"Six years after its initial launch, the PlayStation 2 continues to enjoy nonstop success, outselling all other consoles," said Jack Tretton, executive vice president, co-COO, Sony Computer Entertainment America. "The introduction of this limited edition model is sure to be a hit this holiday season with die-hard PlayStation fans and new gamers alike."
