We heard earlier today that Sony’s planning to axe the PS2’s price from £105 to £95.

Now, Eurogamer reports that a press release was leaked earlier on the Sony press office – and it also revealed memory cards would be cut to £20. The release wasn’t meant to go live until this Wednesday, when the prices are likely to take effect.

With the new price cut, the PS2 jumps ahead of the original Xbox for affordability, but still lags behind the GameCube, which usually costs around the £80 mark.

We’re still paying more for our PS2s than the US and Europe, mind. Converted to British pounds, Euro zone latte sippers pay £80 for their gaming fix, while Americans pay a mere £70 so they can play Singstar et al.

In case you missed ’em, Sony’s also unveiled bubblegum pink editions of the PS2 and PSP earlier today.
