    Blame the economy and the exchange rate. Same thing happened with 3 and 12 month PSN subs. The prices where coming in cheaper than the EU/US so the pricing was adjusted to match the EU's pricing.

    Yeah that's quite a crazy increase. This is what happens when the PS/Xbox Store don't use set pricing for our region like Steam or Origin.

    See it like this, all prices are increasing..food, alcohol, power, petrol.. and yet we still buy it because it's one of our essentials.

    Sure, but if one of the shops more than tripled the price of their bread I'd go buy it somewhere else on principle alone.

    I got the same email, so this is no joke or typo. Seems the prices are increasing heavily. Oh well, I'm still getting 4 games for the price of R150 every month, so that's nice.
