$ Deluxe dlc price hike

7 posts in this topic

The price was$24.99 Canadian for the longest time. I had it in my wish list so I  could keep an eye on it but I just noticed the price is now $33.49... what the hell. The game is almost 7 years old and the price went up.

 

Anybody else notice this?

I hadn’t, but I’m assuming the reason is Need For Speed Heat recently came out, and if anyone is feeling nostalgic or wanting to revisit early installments of the franchise they’re gonna exploit that by bumping up the price. Happened with the first two Bio Shock’s when Bio Shock Infinite came out. I’d say after a few weeks it’ll return to normal

Recently Sony made some "adjusts" in psn prices around the world, related to exchange rates. Maybe that is the case.

When Sony implemented the exchange rate crap they told devs that they didn't have to adopt the exchange rate on old stuff, unless they have to someday replace it or upgrade it on the store. 

 

If their license to have it on the store expired and needed to be re upd, they could've been forced into the exchange rate change. 

 

Who knows if that's what happened but it's a good guesstimate lol.

Yep, I noticed that Drakengard 3 DLC price had literally doubled in the Brazilian store, went to PSprices only to find most games/dlc prices had been adjusted to the current US dollar exchange rate.

I think Sony changed it themselves, plenty of games from other publishers changed price at the same time. Sony published games didn't get a price rise though.

Awhile back I saw an interview with one of the Warframe devs where they were asked if they thought about changing the micro transaction currency bundles and if not, why not? He explained that they wanted to, but if they changed the bundles they would be forced by Sony to implement the exchange rate update when they were updating the bundles on the store, so they decided not to.... The change was optional on old stuff, until it needed to be updated. That's really the only insight I have in to it lol.
