    Rumor: PS2 Dropping to $100 Around April 5, 2009

    Sponsored Links
    A single source at a Kmart has sent JoyStiq images that the PS2 will be promoted for $99.99 starting April 5, 2009.

    To quote: This source has given us reliable retail information in the past and does not believe this is a sale, but the new price for the nearly decade-old, DVD-enabled console. The last-gen juggernaut currently retails for $129.99.

    Our source also checked for a PS3 price cut - following industry rumors that one is incoming - but found no evidence in the Kmart system at this time.

    More details to come as they are available.

    I'm surprised how well this "thing" is still selling. It's even beating the 360 in some countries.

    PlayStation 2 Will Be Available for Under $100

    Hi everyone, the last time you heard from me, I talked about the huge milestone that PlayStation 2 achieved – reaching 50 million units sold in North America. Today I’m excited to talk about another milestone in PlayStation 2’s lifespan. For the first time ever, PlayStation 2 will be offered at a price point under $100 (that’s $99.99 MSRP, to be exact), starting April 1!

    Why is this so significant? Well most importantly, this new price means that more people than ever will be able to join in on the fun that so many of you PlayStation 2 owners have been enjoying for years, which means new families will become part of the platform’s record-breaking install base. With this new price, we intend to introduce a new generation of consumers – some of whom weren’t even alive when the system was first introduced in 2000 – to the immense entertainment value offered by PlayStation 2.

    In the gaming industry, the typical lifecycle for a console is around five years, but because we build each of our platforms for a large and diverse consumer base, we design our platforms differently. With the original PlayStation and now PlayStation 2, we’ve proven that consumers can rely on our platforms for their gaming and entertainment needs for at least a decade. This speaks to the technology and features that were packed into PlayStation 2 from the beginning, as well as to the ongoing support the platform enjoys from the publishing and retail communities and, well, all of you fans.

    PlayStation 2’s unmatched gaming library will grow to nearly 1,900 titles from both our first-party studios and publishing partners this year, with a particular focus on the social and sports genres that are so popular with the emerging family demographic. This will include games such as MLB ’09, Ghostbusters: The Video Game, Guitar Hero Metallica and MotorStorm: Arctic Edge… not to mention the 250 titles that have achieved “Greatest Hits” status.

    With all of that content, PlayStation 2 is a great option for families looking for ways to share their entertainment experiences together; they can rock out to Rock Band, test their trivia knowledge with Buzz!, or simply use the PlayStation 2 as their DVD or CD player.

    So to everyone who’s enjoyed PlayStation 2 over the years, thanks for your continued support. And to those who will now be joining the PlayStation family, welcome!

    I'm a little disappointed by this, I really wanted to see the PS3 beating the hell out of it's competitors... maybe somewhere in June/July we will see the real PRICE CUT?!
