The PlayStation 2 games console has launched its broadband gaming service in the UK. As from today, gamers will be able to buy a kit for £24.99 that includes a network adapter for the console and the software they need to set up the service. Initially, only two games will be available - the military action title Socom: US Navy Seals and car action game Twisted Metal Black Online. But between 15 and 20 titles are expected to be on sale by the end of the year.
Online gaming on the PS2 has proved a big success in the US and Japan since the service went live last year.
