If you’re waiting for a better PS5 prices discount, we have terrible news. Sony stated on PS Blog that the PS5 prices will increase more in certain locations.

The state of the global economy is a problem that many of you around the world are probably facing. We are seeing high inflation rates and bad currency trends around the world, which hurts consumers and puts pressure on many industries. SIE has made the hard decision to raise the recommended retail price (RRP) of PlayStation 5 in certain markets in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA), Asia-Pacific (APAC), Latin America (LATAM), and Canada. In the United States, prices will not go up.

Sony announced PS5 pricing increases in Australia, Canada, China, Europe, Japan, Mexico, and the UK. New pricing are below.
