There are already over 1,000 games titles available, and many more new ones like Gran Turismo 4, The Getaway: Black Monday, Singstar Party, EyeToyTM Play 2 and Killzone, all to be published by SCEE, and titles such as GTA San Andreas from Take 2, Burnout 3: Takedown from Electronic Arts and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater from Konami still to come this year.

This new price point of £104.99, together with this incredible line up of titles, will make it both affordable and exciting for everybody to enjoy the fun of PlayStation gaming, and will ensure that PlayStation 2 continues to be the computer entertainment system of choice for an ever widening and diversifying audience."
