Sony Computer Entertainment, which makes the PlayStation 2 (PS2) home game console, said on Monday it would add a rewritable DVD player to machines sold in Japan. The new consoles, due to hit the Japanese market on May 15, will be able to read the DVD-R/-RW and DVD+R/+RW formats used by many home DVD recorders, although it will not be compatible with the rival DVD-RAM recording format. The PlayStation 2 currently plays only pre-recorded DVDs using the DVD-ROM (read-only memory) format. The new PlayStation 2 will carry a suggested retail price of 25,000 yen (U.S. $207), an increase of up to 1,000 yen over what many retailers now charge under Sony's open pricing system. The existing PlayStation 2 with a read-only DVD player will be phased out in the Japanese market, although no decision has been made whether to take the new model overseas, said a spokeswoman for Sony Computer Entertainment, a wholly owned Sony Corp. subsidiary that makes and sells the PlayStation.
