EPIC WIN?

I remember my folks bought me my NES for $99... Those were good times. I guess all the greats reach that 99 dollar priceline?

PS2 can be undeniably the most popular system of all time.

Sony cuts price of PlayStation 2 to $99

A Sony video game console is dropping in price, and it's not the PlayStation 3.

The company announced they will slash the price tag for the PS3's predecessor, the PlayStation 2, to $99. The discounted console will be available starting April 1.

"PlayStation 2 set the industry standard for worldwide mass market adoption and is a clear embodiment of Sony's commitment to platforms that deliver 10-year product lifecycles," says Jack Tretton, president and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment, in a statement.

The PS2 was the runaway winner of last generation's console battle, becoming the first system to sell 50 million in North America. However, the PS3, out since 2006, has found itself in an uphill battle against Microsoft's Xbox 360 and the stunning ascent of the Nintendo Wii.

Rumors have swirled for months that Sony would cut the price of the PS3 to $299, but the company has denied all claims.

Sony Cuts Price of Wrong PlayStation

Great news! Sony will drop the price of the PlayStation console today by almost a quarter. The catch? It's the PS2, not the PS3 -- the big brother will remain at a customer-repelling $400.

The PS2 will, from today, sell for $100, down from the current price of $130, a 23% drop. This is, according to Reuters, to "woo budget-minded families," although the price reduction has been made possible by increased efficiency in making the console -- squeezing more components onto less chips, for example. This means that Sony will still be making plenty of cash selling the PS2.

Speculation has therefore turned to an imminent PS3 price-reduction. The difference, we think, is that Sony is making little on the machines, or even still losing money trying to get the white-elephant Blu-ray player into homes. While this continues, don't expect any price cuts.

In fact, one thing really confirms Sony's plans to keep the PS3 cost high -- when asked for comment, the company gave none. As soon as a Sony executive denies the rumor, we'll know it's true.
