It's a ridiculous increase. It's gone from £45 to £70 in the UK. Insane.
They tried to bump the price up from £40 to £50 for the PS4 gen and that was annoying then. It didn't last too long and prices dropped back down to £45.
But going up a tenner is one thing, adding an extra £25 to the price? Disgusting!
The excuses too are absolutely pathetic. Ya know, I'd actually respect any of these gaming execs that were honest and just came out and said "we want more money", but nope they're trying to spin some ridiculous sob story and they look pathetic doing it.
The main price increase I have seen discussed online is to 70usd, but the European hike has not been touched much since the prices were announced.
People will come in and mention tax, that sales tax not included. But the price hike is not covered only by tax, maybe similar to the cartridge NS tax.
Let's call this new tax, the gen9 tax!
Enjoy the games, if you can afford them that isLast edited by TomaTito - on 18 November 2020
