Sony Cuts Price of PlayStation 2 to $99.99

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Sony Corp said it cut the price of its older video game console, the PlayStation 2, by 23 percent to $99.99, effective April 1.

The price cut could sustain the life of the PS2, which has sold more than 136 million units since its debut in 2000, making it the world's popular gaming system, Sony said on Tuesday.

The news follows recent rumors on video gaming websites and blogs about the possibility that Sony might cut the price of the PlayStation 3, its more powerful console. The PS3's least expensive model sells for about $400.

Sony dominated the global video game industry for a decade starting in the mid-1990s, but sales of the PS3 have lagged behind those of Nintendo Co Ltd's Wii console and Microsoft Corp's Xbox 360.

    This is great news. The PS2 is the greatest value video game console ever. Especially considering how you can get used games for the ps2 so cheaply. And it plays dvd's to boot. I paid $100 cash for my first Nintendo Entertainment System almost 20 years ago.

    Hopefully the PS3 price drop won't be too far behind.

    My PS2 just died. But I love my 360. Too bad two of my favorite games never showed up on Xbox...24 and The Sopranos, for $99.99 I just might replace my PS2. Please vote up my deals so I can win money to buy, just really vote up... Smile
