The Sony PlayStation 2 has morphed tremendously over the years, from a fat black box to a streamlined sexy thing in contrasting hues. The only problem with the last installment is a cumbersome external power brick. But that's going out the window, at least in Japan, with a new 9000-series that includes an integrated AC power supply. Three colors (Charcoal Black, White Ceramic and Silver Satin) are available and each will be retailing for about $142 on the Japanese market, according to Gizmodo. There were no launch details for the rest of Asia at press time.
