I have been watching for the price of the Playstation 2 to drop before buying one...$300 just seems too much to pay for a console. I was sure that when the Xbox and Gamecube hit the streets the PS2 would drop to at least $250. However, Sony seems to be perfectly content to leave it at $300, so I folded and decided to just bite the bullet and go pick one up yesterday.

Even so, I was determined not to pay full price for one, I figured there had to be a deal somewhere. Costco had them, but only in $400 bundles with crappy games. Everywhere else wanted the full $300, so I went home to try my luck online. Ebay was no good, people are paying more than full price for them there. I ended up finding a deal on Buy.com for $25 off a $200 order, and free shipping. So, I got a PS2 for $275...not too bad. Plus, I can sell my PSX. EB will give me $20 for it, but I'm going to see if I can get a better price on Ebay first.
