- The CEO of GameStop, Dan DeMatteo
, has indicated that the recent PS2 price cut
was just too late, a year too late to be precise.
If Sony had done it earlier then perhaps more publishers would've carried on creating games for the PS2, but once they stop, they really do stop.
To quote: "I don't know that $50 gets you that much," DeMatteo said.
Sony did reduce the price of the PlayStation 2 in late March, but DeMatteo says the move came a year too late.
"To be honest, it really wasn't worth doing," he says.
"If they'd done it earlier, publishers probably would have kept making games for the PS2, but once they've stopped, they've stopped."
