    ive got one,it does run quieter,but its infra silver not red,:D
    seriously though the infra red is now built in and the remote you can get is very small and neat ,tried a dvd on it for the first time and was impressed with quality,

    I recently bought a new model PS2 and can confirm that it is quiet - barely a whisper in comparison to the might of my XBOX! :eek: , my slightly quieter GC or my friend's early-release PS2.

    If it's of any interest, another change is that the i-link/firewire ports (used for link-up in a couple of games, GT3 being one example) are no longer present on the newer PS2.

    Oh, and it's quiet. Sssshhh... :boring: :clap: :D

    Progressive scan DVD playing was taken out of the PAL release of the console- Sony you are fools.

    The differences:

    1: No Ilink port
    2: Infra Red remote controller now built in [you can turn the console off and on with the new remote control]
    3: Console is much quieter.
    4: Also available in Silver

    US and JAP versions additionall have Progressive scan DVD playing.

    Regards,
    Neil.

    Dennis (or anyone else),

    Now I'm confused.

    Whats the URL for the GAME website? Is it www.game.uk.com?

    If so all the remotes that are featured come with the IR receiver so could be used with the black PS2. What is this one particularly for the silver PS2?

    Pete

    P.S. To post a pic, first get the URL by right clicking over the image then press properties. Press IMG above then paste in the url of the image. Like this...........

    Yeah - sell it then buy a new one :D You probably can do something with the fan.
