Sony have released a new Bravia TV, which just from the TV specifications is a great deal. The Sony Bravia KDL-22PX300 features a 22 inch display, along with four HDMI ports, two USB ports, SCART socket, component ports, two Ethernet ports, PC input and built in freeview. Most TVs with these kind of specifications go for at least £250, for a quality brand at least and that many connections. The KDL-22PX300 on the other hand, goes for a very reasonable £200.

The price point is fantastic for those looking for a second TV for the bedroom but, what makes this deal even sweeter and unique, is that the TV features a built in PS2 console. At the base of the TV, there is a disc slot for PS2 games, which will also enable the playback of DVDs on the TV, without the need of an external DVD player. Unfortunately the PS2 will only run in standard definition but, most people who still have a PS2, will be using it in standard definition any way. The TV comes with one controller and you can pick the 22 inch PS2 TV up from Richer Sounds for £199.95, or £219.94 with a 5 year warranty.

Although the system is still selling well, it’s clear that its best days are behind it and Sony’s focusing on the PlayStation 3 and PSP. PS2 games are few and far between, so it’s time to get on with our lives. Well done, PS2. Enjoy retirement.” The
