Starting February 24 (ie this Sunday), Target stores across the US will be selling slim PS2s for $99.
If I can find a white one I need to buy it.
they have the white ps3 bundle with singstar
That's white PS2 + singstar bundle was actually $99 on Amazon last week. Bought one as a gift, great deal.
The $40 gift card for PS3 now this. I might start buying games at Target now just to support these great deals.
Watch out. I bought a Game cube game new release, and it had the target insignia printed on the box insert.
The price drop ensures the PS2's victory, and proves the inevitable triumph of DVD over VHS in the format war. Finally we can all stop living in the past and embrace the future.
DVD never battled VHS in format war. Sony and Toshiba merged their projects (MultiMedia CD and Super Density disc) to create CD. DVD is just succesor of it.
I dont expect any focus on ps2 after this year Sony are prob just squeezing the last bit of juice out of the ps2 to help fund their powerhouse ps3
It could sell at least another 5 million at that price point.
Hell, if they repackaged it with some sort of motion sensing controller, it could be some serious competition for the Wii. Actually, it already is.
I've said it before and i'll say it again. Sony has found the perfect stride as far as console lifespans go. Seven years and counting is astounding. I will never forget all of the great games I played on my PS2.
Add another 10 million to the total after this price drop. In my opinion, this is one of the best systems ever.
long live ps2!
Now I see why Sony is not sweating there being a low cost ps3 sku with Backwards Compatability around at this time.
It helps Ps2 sales and keeps it in the game while its probably not effecting PS3 sales greatly. If there was a BC PS3 at a $299 price range ps2 sales would be cannablized.
I think i will go buy a pretty silver slim to put with my nice tv and ps3 and put my fat boy that i bought day 1 and had apart 30 times to clean the laser in the bedroom. But i will tell you i never had a problem with this ps2 I had him for 8 years 3 moves and 1 move across country not 1 problem major problem just needed to be clean. Thats why I stand by sonys systems. And thats why you will never see me with a 360..never. You wait in two years MS is gone to stop sending those coffins out for the rrod,then what your $hit out of luck you watch.
One of the Greatest, if not the Best console of all time with a library of game that you can play for a life time! surely power can still rival that of the Next gen game = GOW2. now going for $99 is making sure it makes it's mark on the Video game history. Sony have out done them self with this one. PS3 is going to be the same for the next 10 years.
When you realize how many great games you can get for less than $10.
...just great.. now its gonna be another 5 more months of the ps2 outselling the ps3, bearly when it was starting to die down.
still going strong
Hmm, I wanted a slim but ol bulky is still going very strong. Besides my DMS4 Pro chip is in and that cost too much to want to left go :( But I neeeeds room on my tv stand.
I'll be getting one, my old one seem to be on the death bed. had it since launch, it has paid for itself 10x over with memories.
