Sony to Reduce PS2 Price to Combat Xbox 360?
According to SPOnG, retailers have told them that Sony will slash the price of the PS2 to between Â£60 and Â£70 in the UK this Christmas.
â€œYou can expect significant reductions in the price of everything this Christmas, but most noticeable will be the PlayStation 2,â€ our well-placed source told SPOnG. â€œWeâ€™ve been briefed to expect a price as low as Â£60 beginning at the start of December. Sonyâ€™s probably looking at a global price cut â€“ around $100 in the States and a serious Platinum range announcement too.â€
When I read this news I really couldn’t decide if this would impact sales of the Xbox 360 or not. I mean, if you want a 360 you’ll buy it, right? On the other hand, if you’re a kid who has to beg your parents for a console under the tree, maybe it could make a difference.
