Impress Game Watch, among others, reports today that Sony is releasing a new inkjet printer that's compatible with PlayStation 2. Called "TAPIS," it will be released in Japan on February 23 for approximately 20,000 yen (about US$160), and employ a new feature called "GamePrint," whereby compatible games can send screenshots and other graphics to the printer and let users save them as hard copies for posterity.
So far, games supporting the GamePrint feature are DigiCube's America Oudan Ultra Quiz, Nippon Ichi's Marle De Jigsaw, and the PlayStation 2 version of NEC Interchannel's dating sim Kanon. Kanon, evidently, will include a feature for printing out sheets of stickers as well as simple game graphics. In the future, developers Idea Factory, Irem, Artdink, Sun Denshi, Dazz, DigiCube, Nippon Ichi, and Mahou Soft have all indicated that they will support the feature in their games.
