Electronics giant Sony is reportedly gearing up to give the iconic PlayStation 2 another lease of life in the face of sluggish sales from its more advanced, and expensive, successor the PlayStation 3.
A more compact version of the PS2 is understood to be ready to launch in 2008, shrinking the dimensions of the device even further.
Sony has already come out with a smaller PS2, as it did with the PSOne, but the forthcoming unit would see the power supply built into the console.
More efficient manufacturing is likely to make the new PS2 cheaper, at around $99 in the US and £75 in the UK.
The PS2 is already the biggest selling gaming console of all time, having sold around 120 million units. Some 160 new games titles are due for release in the coming months.
