The worldwide Salt and Sacrifice price has seen a significant increase in some countries following its official release on the Epic Game Store (EGS) and PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 consoles. According to Ska Studios, this is because of Sony saw that the prices on the EGS were "much lower than Sony", and they thus forced to match the game's prices on all platforms. This is both good and bad news for different countries, because for places like Brazil have seen a 276% price increase from R$37.99 to R$104.90 .

Didn't thought this would be even possible on third party titles.

What the title says: According to Ska Studios, this is because of Sony saw that the prices on the EGS were "much lower than Sony", and they thus forced to match the game's prices on all platforms.

 

What they don’t tell you That's pretty systematic, and Shane Lynch, the co-owner of Ska Studios, explains he "can't actually control individual prices on Sony, so some of it had to go up or down" due to agreements made with the platform holders.

 

What it means that they signed a contract with Sony to have price parity across platforms and the devs (not Sony ) had to increase prices across other platforms to match the price on PSN

Which also means Sony likely forced them to sign such a contract to allow the game on their platform.

 

Not a good look for Sony whichever way you put it.

Problem is sony store doesn't have regional pricing whereas egs and steam does so lower priced country users get shafted when such stuff happens.

I think the biggest problem is not having regional pricing locked down via strict IP blocks even till this day. 
 

Most of the ppl make accounts from the cheapest region in all gaming storefronts. 
 

Now unsuccessful & new fronts like Xbox & EGS are just willing to do anything to have an audience but the successful ones like Playstation,Nintendo & Steam usually want to have good revenue. 
 

Playstation & Nintendo have piss poor regional pricing for this very reason. 
 

They (specially PS as it’s a direct competitor to PC)need regional pricing & very strict IP checks like Netflix & Amazon so that OOR accounts are next to impossible. 
 

Once & If this happens us Indians (& the fellow poor third world gamers) will benefit the most. 
 

2600 for Indie games & 5k for AAA is just not within reach to non luxurious earners.

Yes they do but they wouldn’t want anyone signing a deal with them to be highlighted on their storefront & then be given away for free on GamesPass or EGS. 
 

That’s what these deals usually safeguard,a popular & much more visible storefront’s marketing capabilities.

They don't sign deals like these. 

 

You can buy keys elsewhere like humble bundle, donate everything to charity yet still redeem on steam etc. It's quiet user friendly.

I don’t know how steam in particular works & I didn’t even mention it while mentioning regional pricing. 
 

I was just implying why would these deals be made by popular store fronts when they are giving someone a front page visibility on their popular portal. 
 

Kinda like same reason why the cross platform DLC commission deal. 
 

Ppl playing F2P games on Sony’s more popular servers but spending money on dlc elsewhere just simply can’t be allowed from a basic business standpoint.
