Sony are dropping the price of the PS2 in North America, and across all of Europe, except for the UK.
I'm sure very few people actually care about a PS2 pricedrop at this stage, but since A) there is no backwards compatible PS3 available in the UK, and B) PS2s do break, especially older models, it would certainly be nice for them to be cheaper.
No reason for them not dropping the price here has been given, so here is a fictitious response from an imaginary Sony spokesperson.
"The recent international price drop for the PS2 console gives consumers an excellent value proposition, there are nearly 1,900 titles available for the system, and new games keep coming out regularly. We decided not to drop the price in the UK, because we realised that we could get a lot more money by not doing, and we really like money, so we want as much of it as possible.
Luckily, the vast majority of UK consumers will not know that they are being charged more than pretty much everyone else around the world, so people will keep happily buying them."
Funnily enough, it's actually the PS3 that is overpriced right now, but there is no word on a price drop for that either.
If and when they do decide to drop either the PS2 or PS3 price here, I will let you know.
