  • Canadians get a price change on the PS3s!!!!!

    Well, we've all been clamoring for Sony to adjust the ridiculous price of their Playstation 3, and they've finally gone ahead changed it for us. Oh, just a couple of notes before you get excited: the price change is only effective in Canada, and it's a $50 increase. Yeah, you Canucks were getting off easy only having to pay $649 of your funny money for a PS3. The new price of $699 should suit you much better.

    Oh, and it also appears that they've removed all 20GB models from the Canadian market as well. Is there a more anti-consumer company than Sony out there? Seriously, it's like they're trying to agitate their customers. Next they'll announce that in order to buy a PS3 you need to submit to a solid kick to the balls before leaving the store. ľAdam Frucci

    Dosen't look like Sony is the ones changing the price, since on Sony's official sale site for Canada, SonyStyle.ca, they havnt' changed the price like other retailers. (although they might not just have gotten to it yet, since they are out of stock anyway)

                lol @ the last comment.

                But in essence, I dont think $650 Canadian is equal to $600 American.
                So yeah. But if it is, then I guess you Canadians got pwned.

                  Like I said before it isn't Sony doing it, infact Sony is keeping it the same price on their Official Site, this news just came out:

                  Sony raises PS3 price in Canada?

                  Source: A short story at Gamers Reports pointing to product listings at the online stores of Best Buy and Future Shop.

                  What we heard: When Sony revealed that the price of the PlayStation 3 would be higher than any of its competitors, some thrifty gamers swore they would wait to pick up the machine until it dropped in price. Those gamers might have been surprised today to hear that the price of the PS3 had actually gone up.

                  Canadian online stores for Best Buy and Future Shop are currently listing the 60GB PS3's price as C$699.99 ($593), up from its original sale price of C$659.99 ($560). Assuming both stores didn't repeat the same typo on the same product at the same time, there's obviously some truth to the news. The question for prospective PS3 owners then became which is more unusual: reputable retailers like Best Buy and Future Shop charging a scalper's premium on desired products, or Sony embittering and driving away potential customers for the sake of a C$40 (more than $33) markup on recently released hardware.

                  A representative with GameStop offered some solace to northerners, stating, "Our EB Games locations in Canada will hold their current PS3 prices...C$549.99 for the 20GB and C$659.99 for the 60GB." So clearly not everyone is jacking up the price on the hardware, but that leaves the questions of whether or not Sony asked them to and why the price hikes are happening in the first place.

                  The official story: "Although the suggested retail price (SRP) of the PlayStation 3 in Canada has not changed, some Canadian retailers have chosen to increase their retail price as a result of the weaker Canadian dollar. This increase is solely at the discretion of the retailer, as Sony Computer Entertainment Canada has not issued a price increase."--An SCEC representative.

                  Bogus or not bogus?: Sony raising the price? Bogus. That the price has gone up at some stores? Not bogus.

                    lol, I just read somewhere that Furture Shops have a poilicy where they will "beat anyone elses price." If you can prove to them you can get the product cheaper somewhere else they will beat it by 10%.

                    So all you have to do it show them that you can get the console cheaper at Ebgames or Walmart if you have them(not sure if you guys have walmarts in Canada) And they will beat that price by 10%....meaning you guys can save money (C65.99).
