damn it, was waiting for a price drop, but gave in about 2 months ago, oh well -.- ps2 was due for a drop, wonder what numbers for it are going to look like

It had a temoprary drop in February for the Americas last year, and easily outsold the PS3 and 360 because of it.

NPD Jan

PS2 - 264k
PS3 - 269k
360 - 230k

NPD Feb

PS2 - 352k
PS3 - 281k
360 - 255k

It won't do that this time of course, because last year it was still selling well with the HD twins.... this year it has fallen.... we could see a ~50-75% jump early on, but that still only brings it to about half the PS3 sales. (talking monthly here, as the first week of the drop could be bigger than 75% jump over th previous week.

I figured $130 was the final price, apparently not.

I dunno about that. I could have *sworn* the PS1 was $50 on It's last year and $100 shortly before.

 

Anyways It's no wonder why the PS2 is dropping. Sales are low and the list looks lackluster for new games this year.

4/7 Accent Core Plus

4/14 Guitar Hero: Metallica

4/21 DW: Gundam 2

5/12 Devil Summoner 2

10/29 Motorstorm Artic Edge aka PSP version on PS2.

Granted E3 is still around the corner, so maybe things will change.

Check out Gamestop.com for the list. I think if anything people should save their money for a PS3.



It's just that simple.

ps2 could start selling a lot in poorer countries.



 

 

 

 

Hmmm that must mean only one thing......Sony's making money off the PS3!

Actually it sells a lot due the piracy.

 



I may buy one. I sold mine when I got my launch ps3, but now I fear that my ps3 could crap out on me and I won't be able to get another BC one from Sony.



It may be a good idea to buy two of these....one for me....and one for ebay in a couple of years :D

I get the reasoning for the price cut now!

It's to cater to the fears of launch PS3 owners! >:D

 no one in poorer countries will ever buy full priced games.
