Boy, am I ever glad that I didn’t waste anytime pondering over the possibilities yesterday.
After years of speculation, the PlayStation 2 finally drops below $100 USD starting April 1st, 2009. It may be just a penny below, but it’s about time! Does anyone care? Of course! Will it spike sales for the month of April? No doubt! I already have a backwards compatible PlayStation 3, but there are still plenty of people out there who haven’t experienced the PlayStation 2’s awesome library of games.
I’m sure it’ll finally convince cheapest of cheap gamers out there to finally pull the trigger. I recall my Super Nintendo was purchased at around this magical price tag. Being nine years late to the party is better than not showing up at all.
Those of you holding out for a PlayStation 3 price drop announcement still have till the end of the day. Or at worst, wait a couple of months for E3 2009. Sony must have something by then.
