Sony plans Nintendo Wii-esque PS2

Ceramic White PS2 launching in the US

Sony plans to launch a Nintendo Wii-esque looking PlayStation 2 (PS2), shipping the product with a karaoke game, two mics and white controller for only $150 (£75) in the US.

The limited edition 'Ceramic White' PS2, bundled with SingStar Pop, will launch in November as Sony attempts to boost sales of its new usurped PlayStation.

Even though Wii similarities abound, the announcement shouldn't take anything away from the PS2. To date the system has sold an unprecedented 117 million worldwide, 44 million in North America alone. In fact, PS2 is still the second best-selling console in the world some seven years after its initial release.
