Good morning everyone,
Like many of you canucks out there, I've been checking the stock levels of PS4 on all the major Canadian retailers sites. Saturday morning I notice that the price is no longer $399, but $449. A quick good search also reveals that Sony exclusive games are going up 69.99 and the controller to 64.99.
Sony is using the current state of the Canadian dollar as grounds for the increase, but I call shenanigans. I know consoles and games cost Canadians more back in the day, but the CAN$ was trading at 65c until only a few years ago. I will agree that the dollar "slipped" a bit recently but it's still trading at 90c, and it was trading at 95c when the console was released in November!
Going back to the original question of this post. Will this sway you to the other side? With the current titanfall bundle (which is actually available to pick up at a store) the systems are practically the same price now.
Personally, I am going to be putting my PS4 purchase on hold as long as I can. I'm doing it mainly on principle at this point. What do you guys think?
