Silver PS2 Shiny, Soon to Be Outdated

Given Sony's recent displays of mental instability, it's nice to see that they haven't forgotten about the one thing keeping the gaming department afloat right now; the PlayStation 2. Although it's much more powerful (and much harder to find) sibling is about to see release in a few weeks, there are still plenty of reasons to love your PS2; Final Fantasy XII and the upcoming God of War II are two examples. In that regard, Sony has announced a special-edition PS2, in shiny, shiny silver, that will retail for the same as the normal PS2 ($129.99). The package, aside from the new paint job, is your standard run-of-the-mill PS2 package; console, 1 Dual Shock 2 (better save this bad boy), composite cables, and power cable. So, if you're looking to get someone special a console that isn't going to cost and arm/leg/pint of blood, and neither Microsoft or Nintendo's offerings seem all that appealing, keep in mind that the PS2 is still alive and kicking.
