You can get a lot for $20: a hardy meal at choice restaurants, half a tank of gas (gotta love it!), a spanking from that scantily clad woman on the street corner, and starting today, a copy of THQ's WWE SmackDown! Vs. RAW, as the now Greatest Hit has been dropped to the $19.99 price point.

"We're excited and thrilled at the enormous success and popularity of these wrestling titles that bring all of the action of the WWE to living rooms across the world," cheers Peter Dille, senior vice president of worldwide marketing, THQ. "The $19.99 price point will allow a greater number of wrestling fans the opportunity to play the games while waiting patiently for the much-anticipated follow-ups, WWE SmackDown! Vs. RAW 2006 and WWE Day of Reckoning 2, scheduled to release later this year."

WWE SmackDown! Vs. RAW isn't the only PS2 title you now nab at $19.99, as, just as we called it, SCEA also dropped the prices of seven of its first-party titles today. Just remember where you heard it first!
