PS2 Price Drop
Sony once again surprised everyone by being the first
of cut the price of their Playstation 2 console. Unfortunately, the
price cut is not a
permitt one. In an effort to clear inventory, Sony will be lowering
the price of the PS2 to $179 in the United States. This is to make
way for a new version of the PS2 that will be released next month.
This new version will include an adapter to allow for online game
play in addition to the ability to play home-made DVDs. The new PS2
will cost $199 when
Most retailers and gamers had been expecting a price cut but did not
expect Sony to throw the first punch once again. Last year's E3 saw
cut the price of their PS2 from $299 to $199 force a price drop by
Microsoft and Nintendo.
The $179 price cut for the current PS2 should be in effect at most
stores as of today.
