Sony has finally gone and done it, putting the final nail in the coffin of its best selling system to date – and what a glorious, bargin-priced coffin nail it is. If you are not one of the 140 million owners of a Playstation 2 then now’s your chance to scoop one up for a song as Sony annouced today on its Playstation blog that the PS2’s MSRP will be dropping to a cool US$99. With close to 2,000 titles available for the system, that’s definitely nothing to sniff at, now we only wish they’d consider something similar for its hi-def sibiling.
UPDATE: The UAE price will be Dhs399, according to our sources. The good old Middle East distro premium strikes again.
