SCEE is cutting the price of PSone to Ł49.99 from Friday, MCV is reporting. Speaking to the trade paper, SCEE marketing director Darren Carter described the move as to "true entry level pricing". "People new to gaming or else not ready to get into PS2 just yet will find the PSone experience much more accessible," he explained. Exact pricing outside of the UK has not yet been determined. Expect to see a price of around €79.99. Recently, SCEE president Chris Deering openly denied plans for a PS2 price cut in Europe. Having witnessed similar denials across the pond, and the subsequent 'surprise' price cut this morning though, we are disinclined to believe him. PlayStation 2 will drop in price soon. Ish. Update - we have since learnt that the European price will actually end up at €89.99. Quite why mainlanders are being forced to pay more than atypically fortunate Brits is a mystery.
