Possible Price Increase for Upcoming PS4, PS3 Games?
According to the Canadian EB Games website, it is possible that some upcoming games could see a price increase. While most triple-A titles release currently for 59.99, some are now listed as both 64.99 and 69.99. At the present time, this is the only Canadian retailer showing this higher price point – Best Buy, Futureshop, Walmart and Target are all still showing the 59.99 MSRP we are used to, though rumors suggest they could be following suit. At this time there doesn’t seem to be a particular rhyme or reason to the increase – some PS4 titles appear to still be 59.99, while others are now listed as 64.99 or 69.99. It is also unclear as to whether or not this will follow suit at GameStop in the US. This could be caused by inflation catching up on the price of console gaming, or it could be a current reflection of the dropping value of the Canadian dollar. At this point, only time will tell; as of yet, there is no confirmation of these prices reflected at purchase in retail stores.
