Sony announces new PSX models

June 16, 2004

Apparently the dismal sales of the PSX in Japan has motivated Sony to cut the prices of the machines by $40-50 (now only $675 and $868) and re-release them with improved features in DVD burning and will now allow users to browse the PlayStation bulletin boards. I am failing to see how this device is still worth the pricetag that it carries. I am also trying to figure out how these new features are suddenly going to make this unit fly off the shelves.
