Sony has confirmed that the price of the PlayStation 2 is set to drop in Australia - but a spokesperson has told GamesIndustry.biz that there are currently no plans to follow suit in Europe.

At present, the PS2 retails in the territory for AUD 249.45 (around EURO 150) - but as of June 1st, the price will fall to AUD 199.95 (EURO 120). June 1st, perhaps coincidentally, is the same date on which Nintendo's redesigned DS Lite handheld hits Australian shelves - also priced at AUD 199.95.

A Sony spokesperson dismissed rumours that the price of the console will also fall over here, stating: "We are not aware of any price cuts for the PlayStation 2 for the immediate future in the UK."
