PS2 price cut to £199?

Sony could take a no frills approach in the run up to Christmas

Sony may reduce the price of PlayStation 2 to £199 in the run up to Christmas, Computer & Video Games is reporting. Unfortunately, the story is only backed up by hearsay at the present time, although Sony have refrained from denying the cut outright. When a similar announcement was rumoured at E3, they denied it completely. Although neither Xbox nor Game Cube is launching here in the UK this side of Spring, Sony will be pinning its hopes on an exponential growth in sales this Christmas thanks to the cut and associated software releases. Games like SSX Tricky, Wipeout Fusion, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 and Silent Hill 2 are all due out in the run up to the festive season, with the PlayStation giant's own Dark Cloud already available.
