PS5 Price Increase Announced by Sony in Several Nations

PS5 Price Increase: Sony declares that there will be pricing changes for the PlayStation 5 system in a number of regions, including Europe and Asia.

PS5 Price Increase: Since the latest console generation began in November 2020, it’s been hard to purchase a PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X. According to Intel, a worldwide computer chip scarcity will endure until 2024. Despite this, the Xbox Series X has grown more accessible, with social media users posting random retail purchases.

With the increased availability of current-gen consoles, speculations surfaced that PS5 costs will rise. Sony declined to comment. In a blog post, the corporation verified the report. The price hikes will take effect immediately, but it’s unclear how soon stores will adjust.
