Sony’s Big Announcement is PS2 for $100

ps2-announcement-99

Looks like that big announcement today didn’t have anything to do with the PlayStation 3. Turns out that today’s announcement is actually a really good price cut for the PlayStation 2. Really really good. The PS2 will be priced at $99.99 starting April 1, 2009. Now more gamers than ever can easily own a PS2 with the systems still expanding library of over 1,900 titles.

SCEA’s Hardware Marketing Director, John Koller, announced this: “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!”
