On Sunday (27), games from PlayStation Store Brazil received a new wave of price increases. Without following any standards for the changed titles, players and price tracking websites identified the movement in the online store over the weekend.
The games Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, for example, had their price readjusted from R $ 229 to R $ 274. Control, Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions, Code Vein and Injustice 2: Legendary Edition had increase from R $ 249 to R $ 299.
The newly launched Marvel’s Avengers also had its price readjusted from R $ 249 to R $ 319. As it does not follow a specific pattern of increase, some games can end up generating confusion when making the choice. In the case of the Avengers title, the base version costs more than the “Edio de Luxo”, which has a stipulated price of R $ 309 (R $ 10 less).

The same happens with Control Ultimate Edition, which also went through the adjustment and, even so, it costs less than the basic version – it cost R $ 164 and goes to R $ 214. The increases in the prices of digital games happen during the promotions’ Discounts in Dobro ‘, for PS Plus subscribers, in addition to the selection’ Popular in Japan ‘.
Second increase in the year
At Monday morning (28), the dollar is equivalent to R $ 5.56. In the United States store, titles like ‘Sekiro’ and ‘Captain Tsubasa’ cost $ 59.99, or about R $ 333 in direct conversion. The store in Russia also seems to have gone through the same wave of increases, but it was not clear until then, if the movement happens in other countries.
This is the second time in 2020 that Sony has readjusted prices for digital games on the Brazilian PSN. In the month of January, titles of several producers also had readjustment in the platform. The justification for the beginning of the year is the same as now, with the company citing current market conditions as a determining factor.
