I was shopping for a ps2 yesterday, and i went to 11 different stores all saying they were sold out, till i finally snagged one at a local k-mart. anyone know the reason for the shortage? someone said to me they are updating the laser so it can read all the colored discs that apparantly had been a problem? another store said sony was holding out till christmas and they were going to raise the price to 179.99 usd?

ya. lots of stores for some odd reason or another don't have PS2's. i know EB Games in a local mall winds up getting a few sometimes when they ship, but they're sold REAL fast. i'm not interested in PS2 though.

it's because they just dropped the price ;), means more demand. they are trying to get rid of old ps2's in order to bring out new playstation by christmass ;)

These days they are making the money on the games rather than the consoles so nobody wants to carry excess stock if they can help it, and consoles also take up alot of shop space in relation to their price.

$80 for PS2 sounds very good, especially given PS3 is at least a year away and PSP is only supposed to be as powerful as PS2. I know I was pleased to buy my Gamecube after the price cut, always worth looking for a good deal.;)

That is correct. They will be releasing the PStwo shortly.

Called the PStwo, Sony's new console will be 30 percent smaller than the current PlayStation 2, but is expected to retail for the same price of $149

If I remember correctly, they're releasing a new HD specifically for the PSTwo. Same for the multitap too I think.

That would e such a cool present though; the new PS looks absolutely gorgeous, like a mini laptop :)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
