Playstation 2 comes to Germany later
Due to the unexpectedly high sales of the Playstation 2 in Japan (3 million units), Sony has postponed the start of sales for Germany a little. The new date is now November 24th, which means a postponement of almost 1 month.
The time gained in this way will be used primarily to produce a large supply of consoles so that it can be used during the Christmas business does not lead to delivery bottlenecks. The price of the console is said to be 869DM, which means that the Playstation 2 would be around 200DM more expensive in our country than in the US.
