Playstation 2, Xbox and Gamecube Console Prices

Dec 27, 2006

Holy game console price war Batman! Sony Playstation 2 (PS2), Microsoft Xbox and possibly even Nintendo Gamecube are going crazy! Even the Console Wars were never as hot as the deals you can get right now.

On Monday, May 13, 2002, the Playstation 2 cut its price from $299 US ($465 CDN) to $199 US ($310 CDN) and started something big. Two days later the Xbox dropped to the same price. Now the Xbox, Playstation 2 and Gamecube are all $199 US ($310 CDN) and the big question is - will the Nintendo Gamecube lower its price too? And what about the Game Boy Advance?

Kidzworld got the 411 straight from Nintendo and here's what they have to say:

"Nintendo has no plans to drop the price of the Nintendo GameCube in North America; the Nintendo GameCube was launched at price-point attractive to the mass-market and the system and software continue to experience strong and growing sales."
- Nintendo statement

Which means that the price on the Gamecube isn't going to drop, not yet at least. If Nintendo changes their mind Kidzworld will let you know!

While the world's hottest game consoles are having a crazy price war, Kidzworld member TheJedi21 is dishing up his thoughts on their best games. Here's what he has to say about three titles for the Xbox and Playstation 2.

The Game Report

By: TheJedi21

Welcome to TheJedi21's game talk. This issue will give you all the info on the newest games.

  • Baldur's Gate: Dark Legacy (PS2):
    First I will explain about a game called Baldur's Gate: Dark Legacy. It is a PS2 only game of fantasy heroes and monsters. It also has some cool weapons. The plot is sorta confusing but later in the game it makes sense. With its top-notch graphics, Baldur's Gate: Dark Legacy is a hit!

  • Jet Set Radio Future (Xbox):
    Ah yes, a sequel to the popular Sega Dreamcast game, Jet Grind Radio. This game has Jet Grind Radio's popular "Cel Shaded" graphics. The plot of Jet Set Radio Future is that some weird billionaire is trying to overrun Tokyo. You have to stop him.

  • You can play as one of the "Graffiti Masters." You can be Korn, Bubblegum and a few other guys and girls. You score points and win the game by spraying graffiti. This game is not the best game on my list.

  • Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter (Xbox, PS2):
    This game is just like the other Star Wars: Starfighter games but it has better graphics than the original Star Wars: Starfighter games.

  • This is TheJedi21 reporting, now I am shutting down.
