PS2 Price DropAn article from British news site ITN, reports that Sony is dropping the price of PS2s from £299 to £269, which roughly translates to $43 US Dollars.
Darren Carter, Sonys European marketing director, said: "Because of exchange rates across Europe we altered our trade rate. He went on to say, "We dont see this as a strategic price cut because the amount is too small."
Nothing has yet been stated as to whether or not the US will see this price drop, but considering that both the Xbox and the Gamecubes arrival is not too far off, gamers can expect to pick up the unit, well... cheaper.
