Canadians have recently had to deal with a price increase for games in the retail setting due to the lack of strength of the Canadian dollar. Now, the PlayStation Store is being hit by this recent trend. Even though the digital version does not carry the price of shipping and manufacturing, inFAMOUS: Second Son has been upped to the price of $69.99 just like the retailers.
inFAMOUS: Second Son is a new entry in the superhero franchise by Sucker Punch. In this PS4 game, you play as Delsin, a new protagonist, who is in control of smoke and neon powers. Delsin can run rampant through the city of Seattle with these powers as he fights against the oppressive government group, the Department of Unified Protection.
Is this a way for Sony to keep retailers like EB Games and Walmart happy with non-competitive prices? Sony, in the past, have given a 10% discount for their first party Vita titles. If you are willing to pay the extra $10, inFAMOUS: Second Son will be releasing on March 21st.
