Sony promotes DVD bundle with PS2.
It has been announced that Sony has begun selling a new Playstation 2 package in Japan featuring 2 DVDís bundled with the system. Available exclusively through the Internet between June 21st and July 25th, customers who purchase the PS2 package will receive DVD copies of both "The Matrix: Special Edition" and "The Perfect Storm: Special Edition". The special is known as the "Playstation 2 DVD-Pack", and retails for 39,800 yen ($319). Sony hopes to continue this promotion throughout 2001 in Japan with alternating DVDís strapped to its hardware. It has not been announced if this promotion has any correlation with the US, however, it does make for an interesting idea.
