PS2 Price Drop in UK
Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) today announced that, effective immediately, the suggested retail price of the PlayStation 2 game console in the UK will be reduced to £104.99. (That's about $191 in US dollars)
That price may seem odd to those of us in the U.S., where the PS2 retails for $149, but bear in mind, (1) consoles and games tend to cost more in the UK and Europe, and (2) retailers will likely discount that price even further.
Bottom line: cheaper systems sell faster. Sony should get a decent sales boost outta this.
