    Read It Here
    Effective immediately.
    The PSOne, as well as many peripherals, also dropped in price. Meanwhile, Sony is hinting at lowering their average software price below the industry standard $49.99. Now things are definitely getting interesting...it's a buyers market.

    Great News!

    So, would I be able to go down to Best Buy tomorrow and pick up the PS2 for $199.99.

    I have been waiting patiently since the X-Box came out in November for the PS2 to cut its prices. Now it has and I'm ready to pounce.

    Expect Microsoft to meet or beat that price by the end of next week. I see an XBOX in my future [​IMG]

    Lying whores.

    Sony PR Rep, May 8:

    "We're definitely comfortable at $299"

    "We have stayed firm at $299 when not one single person thought we would, and we have sold almost 10 million units in North America so far, so we're pretty happy with our position right now. I can't imagine that we need to change our strategy one iota."

    "We're definitely sticking at $299 right now, that's where we are"

    Sony finally woke up and smelled the Xbox.

    According to sales figures, the Xbox is a bit too far away to smell, even on the warmest of days. [​IMG]
    I wonder if Microsoft will drop the Xbox below $199? I have a feeling they might.

    That "sale" of Xbox accessories at another retailer shouldn't look like a sale anymore. Rather, as a hint.

    Doomsday ahead for the Xbox? The developers I know definitely think so.

    This is just the excuse I've been waiting for.
    Might as well pick up a $50 PS1, too. [​IMG]
