    This rumor has hit on the-magicbox.com and ps2.ign.com as well.

    IGN pulled the story in one day, I can't find it on their site anymore.

    Here's hoping it's true. $99 is the right price point for me to get an X-box.

    If PS2 goes to $99, does Gamecube go to $49?

    Well Best Buy is already selling cubes here for $100 CAD, which is about $75 US at current exchange [​IMG]. I'm thinking about building a Gamecube array... It would have untold dark power!

    Edit: Now it's down to $80 CAD for a Gamecube at BB/Future Shop (owned by BB), I dunno what's up with the firesale but that's like ~$55-60 USD. So very cheap...

    I don't see the PS2 going to $99 either, but if it happens, Microsoft is not going to let the X-box be the most expensive console.

    Perhaps $150 for both? $130?

    Well, I for one would fully support a console price war. I still haven't picked up a Ps2, but if it ever came to $100 CDN I might just have to so I can play FFX all the way through.

    It looks like it is not happening, but they are giving away $1,000,000.
