huge rumor

Reported by psm online

Network Adapter bundle on the way?
April 18: Here's an interesting rumor I heard today, which may be confirmed come next month's E3 show. It seems that Sony may begin bundling Network Adapters with PlayStation 2 systems purchased later this year, at no additional cost. It will be interesting to see at E3 whether Sony announces a price drop (as many are expecting) or simply that the PS2 will stay at $199 but not only come with an NA, but also a bundled DVD remote, built-in infrared receiver, etc. Should be interesting.

damn does sony ever stop pouring on the pressure....

question..which do you guys think is better (for those that dont have a ps2 yet)....price drop or bundle....

Bundle, Sony should go the way Microsoft has (here at least) and throw in $300 worth of free stuff when you buy a console. This will bring in a huge amount of new users and bolster the online userbase :) :)

Price drop and a bundle are good ideas. The PS/2 is the only console out now that's in the green, so it's in the best position to do both. The bundled network adaptor is an excellent idea. It'll help soften the blow when it comes to buying the HDD (assuming that's still coming out).

Bundle/price drop rumors for any console around e3 time are always plentiful, so anything you hear I would take with a grain of salt. Though truthfully, a ps2 price drop is long overdue, considering that its been the longest on the market and the weakest, hardware-wise.

Price drop ain't gonna happen... Gamespy had a interview with one of the big heads at Sony saying in a nutshell "We're still selling more systems than the GC and XBOX, so why should we drop the price??" Of course this could be one man's opinion.

Some sony rep said the same thing last year before a price drop.
