They should just increase the MRP instead of doing underhanded scams like this to inflate software sales numbers to make the company look better to investors than it is (this does not imply the company is doing badly). 

If they want to make a quick buck by exploiting shortages, they should be upfront about it. I'd rather they just increase the price by 2.5k rather than try to shift a 2.5k game for 5k. Just creates unnecessary effort of having to sell it. 

Actually it's 20USD less than Console MRP + Game MRP. Increasing base price of the console will only piss off everyone, even the media will drag them out. This is more like a safe way to make more money, like any corporate company would do if they can, but not everyone has that kind of market power.

Maybe. 

That doesn't explain the digital sales top 5 having both HFW and GT7. Add to that digital sales are higher compared to physical as per last annual report.

 

Sshhh...

Why are bringing USD into it if the math is as simple as INR X + INR Y = INR X+Y? 

Apple increased their prices recently. Microsoft did too. I guess Sony doesn't have that kind of market power in a market where it has 90% share as per expert analysts.

The original post was not from India. In India it isn't even an official bundle, sellers basically slapping the game to a console and asking to buy both or no sell. Apple and Microsoft are greedy, and so is Sony in their own way. 

I don't know what the f*** you are reading to get that 90% share number.

ShopatSc and Amazon are as official as it gets. You're implying false equivalence where there is none. And no the conversation was not about US prices solely if you actually read.

I did read, snakes post was actually EU nations, not USD but the same applies, they're not selling game+console price either. You would have known this if you actually read.

But i agree with one point. 

 

 

Instead of giving a title, they should rather give out ps plus sub for 3/4 months.

They did this with older gens, might come out in time. 

 

 

............................. 

In other news, new prepaid cards for new ps+ are already out.

My point is on the forced bundling in India. Should be obvious enough. But carry on. I don't read Snake's posts.

Microsoft follows us pricing (thus increasing dollar value will lead to increase in prices)

 

sony follows european pricing in india, thats why no change till now.

 

Ps: read this on twitter.

Thought they'd at least announce the SoP date today, false alarm I guess. 

 

On the bright side, Ragnarok is rated in South Korea.

The brand will leverage Sony’s high quality display and audio technologies, said Sony home entertainment president Kazuo Kii.

Weird name, if you ask me.

Kazuo Kii is not a weird name! :slap:
