An appeals court has agreed with European Union officials that the PS2 is a video games console and not a computer, ruining the Japanese manufacturer’s hopes for a significant rebate of custom duties. In a hope to be eligible for a lower duty rate Sony lawyers had argued that the PS2 should be considered as a computer, since some of its chips have the capacity to do some data processing.
