Sony Packs a PS2 Into a Bravia

Posted Tue Dec 7, 2010 at 07:00 AM PST by Dick Ward

It's a nice option for folks with a tight budget, but it's still pretty ugly.

The PlayStation 2 is a great gaming system and still one of the best for kids and adults alike, assuming that you don't mind a 4:3 picture and a standard definition screen resolution. It's been swept by the wayside by the new HD consoles, but that's not stopping Sony.

The new KDL-22PX300 is a 22 inch set that's packing a PS2. Now before you go getting excited about a sleek TV with a side loading slot for PS2 games and DVDs, take a look at the picture. It looks like someone went and glued a TV to the top of a PS2 slim.

The 22PX300 offers a 720p resolution, though the system will still only play in SD. It also includes four HDMI inputs, an Ethernet port as well as the ability to go online via a WiFi dongle. It's not available in the States, but our British friends can pick it up for around $313.
