The article reports on the decision of Sony to reduce the price of the PlayStation 2 (PS2) video game consoles from $130 to $100 in North America. Sony has also dismissed rumors of a price reduction for the PS3. The PS2 which Sony has been selling for nine years now, remains the top-selling console with over 140 million units sold around the world. The price drop is designed to enable the PS2 to retain its title as the top selling console in line with the extraordinary rate by which the Wii is being sold.
