Sony slashes PS2 price

Well, we'd heard Sony might be cutting prices on one of its consoles today, and that has happened – but not to the console we were hoping for. S

Good news for people who want to by a ten year old console, sure - and there are getting on for almost 2,000 titles now available for the PS2 - but it seems to us that most gamers would prefer a price cut on the PS3, which is the most expensive of the current console crop by a big margin, or some news on its next firmware update.

It's a view that's echoed by the majority of the commenters under Sony's blog post announcing the price cut, with many saying they were expecting Sony's big news reveal to be a little more, well, big.

Still, the day isn't done yet, so it could be that Sony has something a bit more impressive tucked up its sleeve.
