This article is cheese, Sony don't want them to make games for ps2 they trying to focus on ps3. they basically in X-out mode like all old gaming systems. they wanna stop supporting ps2 while keeping ppl happy which isn't going to happen. I work at wal-mart and its everyones understanding that the case that holds ps2 stuff will be gone by the new year. so selling the systems a whopping 30 dollars cheaper is just a way to clean warehouse IMO.
the price going down is the best for the gammers, i have the emulator to play the games i own in my portable, because i have a fatPS2, im goin to buy slim thenks to this great notice. i hope sony to lower the price in PS3 to get one too.
