Hmm - and this would retail for the double the price of PS2 I guess ...

Or - maybe not - but Sony might go ahead and start releasing PS2 Games on PSN ... well ovepriced.

Also - it's not really clear HOW it would be attached to (current) PS3s?? USB? Or are they planning to have new SKUs with some expansion ports?
