Rumor: PS2 dropping to $100 around April 5


A single source at a Kmart has sent us images that the PS2 will be promoted for $99.99 starting April 5. This source has given us reliable retail information in the past and does not believe this is a sale, but the new price for the nearly decade-old, DVD-enabled console. The last-gen juggernaut currently retails for $129.99.

Our source also checked for a PS3 price cut -- following industry rumors that one is incoming -- but found no evidence in the Kmart system at this time.
