Sony counters rumors of a European price increase.

  We reported earlier on the European tax situation revolving around the PlayStation 2. The conflict is due to a disagreement about what to classify the product as: a computer or a videogame system. British officials, much to Sony's chagrin, ruled against the makers of the popular system, and hit the company with a 2.2% import tax for each system shipped into Great Britain. Despite the setback, Sony has petitioned the British government with hopes of labeling the system with a classification that eliminates the import tax on the consoles. The system is to hit European shelves on November 24. Despite Sony's efforts, unless the situation changes, will be taxed 1100 Yen, or $11 American on each imported system. In the midst of all these difficulties, Sony has denied continuing rumors of a price increase in Europe.
