The new unit weighs 720 grams, down from the 820 grams the current model weighs (including its external AC adapter). The new(ish) PS2 will launch on November 22 in three colors, with peripherals to match, including a vertical stand (pictured with consoles) for 1,500 yen (approx. $13). No word yet on releases outside of Japan, although it seems likely that the new units will eventually make their way to other regions.
