Sony’s has decided to drop the price on PS3 predecessor, the PlayStation 2, to a low low price of $99.99. Look for the price decrease in the first week of April.
Sony has gone on record saying:
“We do not have plans for a PS3 price drop, and any rumors to that effect are false and are the result of speculation.”
I guess if your not into gaming and hard core graphics, the PS2 would most certainly suit your needs just fine. You will be able to play CDs, DVDs, and even join in on some networked game play with friends.
