Sony announced raising the price of the PlayStation 5 for some reasons. The company has said it will be done in only some selected regions, but it almost covers all significant areas.
After the PS5 launch, it is the second time Sony is raising the price while the last one was settled back, but this is a bigger bump than that. Let’s discuss it below.
Sony Announce To Increase Price of Both PlayStation 5 Edition
According to Sony’s announcement, this price rising is for both editions: the Digital Edition and the PS5 Ultra HD Blu-ray disk drive edition.
And it will be implemented in the major region, which is Europe, the UK, the Middle East, Africa, Asia, Latin America, and Canada.
Besides, the United States is the major region for Sony, but it is the only one not included in the list of getting this price bump.
