Sony has rapidly expanded its presence in the PC gaming space over the last few years, having brought over some of PlayStation’s biggest and most well-received titles over to the platform. However, the company seems to be making some decisions that are unlikely to go down well with the masses.
As spotted recently by a ResetEra user, Sony seems to have quietly raised the prices of a number of its titles on Steam in various countries. Games like Returnal, Sackboy: A Big Adventure, God of War, Horizon Zero Dawn, Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, and Days Gone have all seen price increases to varying degrees in a number of regions, including Argentina, Japan, Canada, Colombia, China, South Korea, and Chile.
The price increases vary from title to title and country to country. In Argentina, for instance, they’ve increased from a range of 4199-5999 Pesos to 8499-9999 Pesos; in Canada, they’ve gone from $59.99-69.99 to $64.99-79.99; while in Japan, they’ve increased from 4900-6490 Yen to 6490-7590 Yen (via PlayStation LifeStyle).
Sony hasn’t yet officially communicated anything related to said price increases, so it’s currently unknown whether the changes will be restricted to Steam or if they’ll be happening in other regions as well.
