Playstation 2 Price Drop?
Microsoft officially dropped the price of the Xbox to $149 today. Can a Playstation 2 price drop be far behind?
PSX Extreme's sources have revealed that earlier this month, EB Games stores received marketing materials for both the Xbox price drop as well as a Playstation 2 price drop. The materials also included a list of possible prices, which ranged from $129 to $149. Furthermore, company-wide e-mails in the past two weeks have made constant reference to upcoming price drops, the plurality of which shows that something is happening behind the scenes.
It is thought that the base Playstation 2 price will drop to $129, while the online bundles will be priced at $149. Keep in mind, however, that this is all speculative at this point.
