Playstation 2 price cut rumored.

  According to rumors circulating in Tokyo, Japan, it seems that Sony will soon be announcing a price cut on the Japanese hardware of the PS2. While Sony has made no official comment on all of this, it is pretty much a no brainer, seeing as how the GameCube and GameBoy Advance will be released around June/July, Sony has no choice but to lower the PS2s price to a competitive pin-point. Word is that 10,000 yen is the believed drop, which is an equivalence of $86, so I guess it would be safe to say that a US price drop would be between $75 to $100.

   SCEI director Kenichi Fukunaga said, "Certainly we plan to oppose the Xbox, but we're not targeting any other platforms. Beneath the surface, a war of words has already begun [between Microsoft and Sony]. Some people believe the Xbox is more powerful, but we're not using computer-based components. I'm confident they won't be able to match the level of expression of our exclusive semiconductors."

   Stay tuned for anything new that may come up within the next few weeks, we will keep you covered.
