    Sony is going to sell a TV with a built-in PS2 here in the UK.

    Sure, the PS3 is what's hip and happening for Sony game fans, but unless you picked up one of the first generation (chubby) units you have questionable support for the greatest generation of games: those that released for the PS2. But, don't fret noble gamer, and don't lament about trading that console in for $15 store credit a few years back. Just buy a new TV! Sony's KDL-22PX300 LCD has a rather hunky base that conceals a fully working PlayStation 2. That console is fully backwards compatible with O.G. PlayStation games and naturally also plays DVDs but, if that isn't enough pixels for you, four HDMI ports await the clumsy probes of cables from sources that can better handle the ways of its 720p panel. The set can also serve up video from Sony's Bravia service over Ethernet or an optional wireless dongle. It's priced at 200 in the UK, which is just a tick over $300 and, honestly, not too bad a deal. No word on an American release, but it'll need a SCART-ectomy before that happens.

    I used to be a gamer like you, then I took an arrow in the knee.

    I love the idea, but that thing is ugly as eff. What's with the giant border and base? The PS2 on its own is pretty small, so I'm not understanding why the base of the TV is so gigantic?

    For that price, though, not bad. Should come pre-loaded with the full list of PS2 games. :p

    I'm guessing the US is septic town?

    No, we do not use scart.

    What is the max resolution a scart cable can carry?

    I think our equivalent that you do not have is the AV cable, but I'm not sure.

    Has anyone done a proper (video) review of this yet?

    I'm curious to know how good PS2 games look on it (i.e. is the TV optimised in some way to get the best from both SD and HD signals).

    Sony would rather bring back PS2 BC in a TV then the PS3 ? Were is the logic in that ?

    22 inches lol.
