Sony Cuts The Price Of The PS2

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe today announced that it is to begin offering the PS2 in Europe at €129.99 (£94.99) with immediate effect. The price of Memory Card will also fall to €19.99.

Significant advances in manufacturing efficiency, together with economies of scale driven by global shipments of over 106 million units have enabled cost savings to be made, which are now being passed on directly to new PlayStation 2 customers.

Commenting on the new price David Reeves, President of SCEE said, “With this attractive new price point and a vast portfolio of over 2,200 software titles including social gaming blockbusters such as EyeToy, SingStar and Buzz!, we believe there has never been a better time to join the community of PlayStation 2 users.At this new price point of €129, the market leading PlayStation 2 should remain the computer entertainment system of choice for an even wider and more diverse audience for many years to come.”
