PS2 drops price in Japan

Sony Computer Entertainment announced today that the company plans to lower the price of the system by several thousand yen in Japan. Sony also announced plans to release a PS2 bundle with Ratchet & Clank in Japan on December 3. The bundle is officially titled the "Ratchet & Clank Action Pack" and retails for 26,800 yen, 2,000 yen more than the current PS2 price in the area.

The reason for the price reduction is the fact that Sony is releasing a new version of the console on the Japanese market. The new system takes advantage of cheaper manufacturing techniques; this directly allows Sony to manufacture cheaper PS2ís.
