Sony Europe have confirmed the news that we've been expecting for months - that a Satin Silver slimline PlayStation 2 is to be launched in the UK.

We first reported the news of a Silver Slim PS2 back in January when high street retailer Argos listed the product on their website before quickly removing it a day or so later, and saw the product being strongly denied by Sony - despite being obvious to many that a silver version was bound to see a release before too long.

The machine will go on sale across Europe on May 13th priced at 114.99, and will join the standard version which will see a black DVD Remote Control bundled in with it.

Earlier this week Sony confirmed the long-awaited news that their handheld PSP would launch in the UK on September 1st priced at 179, and would be complimented by a bundle of accessories as part of a Value Pack.
