Weird price increases for Battlefield 1, Titanfall 2, and FIFA 17 in South Africa

Rand price increase money

The South African pricing for EA’s latest titles has increased yet again on certain platforms, creating a disparity between the price of PC, PlayStation, and Xbox One games in South Africa.

This follows recent price fluctuations for EA games including Titanfall 2, FIFA 17, and Battlefield 1 in South Africa.

The price of these games has changed again, and now varies greatly across the PlayStation Store, Xbox Store, and Origin.

The table below lists the digital pricing for Titanfall 2, FIFA 17, and Battlefield 1 Standard Editions:

PlayStation Store
Xbox Store
Battlefield 1  R1,149  R799  R999
Titanfall 2  R1,149  R799  R999
FIFA 17  R1,149  R1,149  R999

The pricing comparison above shows a great disparity between local prices on different platforms.

South African gamers recently experienced a price increase across all these digital stores, although it seems that while the PC pricing has remained the same, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 pricing has changed dramatically.

Most notably, the PS4 versions of Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2 are R350 more expensive than the Xbox One version, with the Xbox One version of Battlefield 1 Deluxe Edition being cheaper than the Standard Edition on PS4.

The Deluxe Edition of Titanfall 2 is priced at R1,399 on both the Xbox and PlayStation Store, despite the price difference between the Standard Editions on both platforms.

Only FIFA 17 is listed at an equal price of R1,149 across both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 stores, although this is a big change from its R799 price tag earlier this year.
