Sony Computer Entertainment Canada has confirmed to the Toronto Sun that the price of PlayStation 4 will go up from $399.99 to $449.99. The DualShock 4 and PlayStation Camera each cost $59.99 now, but will soon cost $64.99. All price changes go into effect as of Saturday, March 15th.
According to the Sun, console scarcity has continued in Canada, with PS4s still hard to find in the wild. However, the newspaper does note that while Xbox One has been soundly outsold by PS4 in Canada so far, the numbers are tightening. We’ll have to wait and see if this price change further evens the playing field.
We’ve reached out to Sony for further clarification and comment, and will update when we hear back.
