Rumor has it that Sony is going to increase the price of the PlayStation 4 camera by $10 making it a total of $69.99.
This price was leaked in the Sony’s Road to Greatness sweepstakes list, which you can see in detail below:
PRIZE: The confirmed winner will receive a PlayStation® prize pack, consisting of one (1) of each of the following items:
PlayStation 4 entertainment system, average retail value (“ARV”) is $399;
DualShock 4 controller, ARV is $59.99;
PlayStation 4 entertainment system camera, ARV is $69.99.
PS4 camera ran out of stock just after it became available and retail store GameStop was already selling the device for $69.99 whenever it felt that the stock was low.
With this high demand of for the PS4 camera and the financial crisis that Sony is facing, this kind of price hike can be expected from the company.
On the other hand, the PlayStation 4 console is doing really well with fiscal year results showing increase in sale despite the overall loss.
Sony is expecting another year of loss but after that they believe that the company will have enough attractive first party titles to earn them some profit, which means some really great PS4 exclusives are inbound in next couple of years.
As for now, we will just have to wait and see how good Sony does in terms of exclusives at this year’s E3, which is scheduled to begin on 9th of June.
