DATELINE -- Tuesday, 14 September 1999

PlayStation2PlayStation2 will play: Those of you planning to get your hands on one of Sony's upcoming PlayStation2 consoles can expect to get another DVD player in the process, as Sony has announced that all of their PlayStation2 decks will handle DVD Video discs, along with standard Audio CDs. Sony announced some months ago that the new players would utilize DVD technology, but the DVD Video capability is an unexpected development, and since the next-generation gaming consoles from Nintendo and Sega will also use DVD transports, we're speculating that they could follow Sony's lead with DVD Video compatibility as well. The PlayStation2 is expected to debut in Japan next March and should arrive on North American shores about a year from now.
