Are We There Yet? No? Good
Audiovox offers fully integrated Playstation 2 with its back-seat entertainment system
Rather than messing with universal connectors and having to lug your personal system into the car (if the two were even compatible in the first place), Audiovox's fully integrated new model includes the base system, wireless controllers -- even two wireless headphones to keep the noise manageable. Two PS2 games (of the 1,800 titles compatible with the PS2 system) are also included: "Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando" and "Hot Shots Golf 3." (We get that they're going for the family angle, but how awesome would it have been if they included "Grand Theft Auto 4" and the upcoming "Forza Motorsport 3"?) That, of course, is in addition to the standard in-car fare, such as a 10.2-inch LCD screen with built-in dome light, remote control and 16-channel FM modulator with FM transmitter (the PS2 also plays DVDs). It will retail at all major manufacturers and dealerships, with a price tag of $949.99.
Here's probably the point at which I'm supposed to start talking about how this breaks down family values and communications and all that stuff, but, well, nope: Long drives suck when you're a kid. This is cool.
