Since the recent changes in the Canadian dollar, the lovely people at Sony have been dropping prices on their gear up here in the lovely Canadian to match the US prices and we love them for it. *cough* Microsoft *cough*
Now they've been kind enough to announce a price drop with the May 1st update on the Playstation Network Store. Yeah! So now you can download complete PS3, PS1 and arcade games for hopefully the same prices as the PSN store in the US. We'll have to wait and see what the new prices with be, but if they're anything like the console price drop, then they'll be the same as the US prices. Nice, huh?
"We are continually looking for ways to enhance the player experience on the PLAYSTATION Network, and downloadable content through the PLAYSTATION Store is just one of our areas of focus," said Grace Chen, Senior Manager for the PLAYSTATION Store. "We anticipate that this price adjustment will meet the expectations of our Canadian consumers and provide them with a better PLAYSTATION Network experience."
Sony is like Santa, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy rolled into one lately. Who knew?
