Nintendo is planning to counteract Sony's PlayStation 2 price drop with one of its own for the , if recent rumors in the retail realm are any indication. According to GameSpot, EB Games employees have received "new low price" marketing signs--internally produced--with the pricing field left blank. The most likely price drop would be to $80, as the console currently sells for $100. In terms of price drops, 20 has become the new 50, it seems, as Sony's last was that amount ($150 to $130), and Nintendo's and GBA SP have similarly dropped an Andrew Jackson. Nintendo has made a couple of offbeat decisions lately, however, so we wouldn't be surprised to see a $78.42 console either. These signs are set to be put up within the retailer's next marketing period--May 3 to May 23--which coincides with next week's Electronic Entertainment Expo. Expect to hear more about the potential price drop then.
