Sony representatives At E3 have unveiled the latest US ps2 unit. All of the PS2s they are using for demonstration of various games and innovations at E3 are the latest models. The new models are based on the latest japanese ps2 incarnation that will read DVD-R
& DVD+R media for movies. However, the latest test models did not contain the built in infra-red, and latest DVD remote that allows control over the ps2 tray although they did say it indeed had the latest DVD drivers. The model number on the current display units is: SCPH-30101S . It is also said to have the intergrated EE/GS chip called the dragon. Still no word on the latest cd/dvd DSP which plagues some of the HK, TW and now Austrailian units with dvdr game booting issues. All of this information should not be taken as full fact that these features will be (added/left out) in the final US retail version.
