Sony announced that it will raise the price of its latest console, PlayStation 5 (PS5), in different regions of the world due to “high rates of global inflation” that affect the economy of these countries.
The company assured that video game consoles will be more expensive in five selected markets in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, as well as in Asia-Pacific, Latin America and Canada.
On the contrary, players in the United States will be able to continue purchasing the console at the same price as currently, since this country will be exempt from this rate increase, according to the company in a statement.
This official price increase, which affects both the PS5 Digital Edition and the one that includes Blu-ray support, is already in effect in Europe, the United Kingdom, China, Mexico, Canada and Australia, while in Japan the prices will change from next September 15.
