    Yeah but look, € went down in value so much that it is an obvioul move, 1€ used to be worth 1.3$ but right now $ has slightly higher value than €.
    Blame current politics not sony

    Meta/Facebook hugely increased their Oculus Quest 2 prices recently despite it launching some time ago, so maybe they have started a new trend.

    “It’s worth noting that the price increase doesn’t impact the US, possibly because of the current US dollar’s strength relative to the Japanese Yen”
    In what way does that even matter anymore. Sony is a US based company ever since they packed and move to California and closed their japanese studio.

      Good point. I assumed they were still partially designed/manufactured in Japan but that seems to have changed

    • joe says:

      Sony is a Japanese Company with offices in 13 countries including the US. SEI or Sony Entertainment Inc. has offices in California, but is a wholly owned subsidery company under the parent company with its workd headquarters in Japan.

    It’s funny how that happens right after sony is going through a lawsuit in Europe about over charging on PSN purchases

      It’s the same 30% industry standard. Doesn’t seem like it has legs unless they have another angle to try.

    The price of the PS4 went up in Canada in the past as well. They increased it by $50.

  9. Ulrick says:

    well, time to wait for ps6

  10. Wetalo says:

    I recall the PS4 launching in Canada at $399 CAD and increasing to $450 cad a few months later.

    Or it was 450 to 500? Something like that, but it was a $50 price increase due to the value of the Canadian dollar lowering. This was the same time Video games started retailing from $60 cad to 65, and then 70,and then 80.

    Today new PS5 games retail for $90 cad before tax, making them a $100 purchase tax-in. Kinda crazy how cheap they used to be.
