Sony Increases Price of PS4 and PS3 in Chile Due to “Market Conditions”

on March 10, 2014 6:11 PM

It has been revealed that Sony will be increasing the price of the PS4 and certain PS3 models in Chile, officially due to “market conditions” in the country.

The value of the Chilean Peso (CLP) went from 500 CLP per US Dollar to 570 CLP per US Dollar since last year, which is a 14% variation. Sony increased the prices of their systems as such:

  • PS4 500GB: From 329.990 CLP to 379.990 CLP (15% increase)
  • PS3 500GB: From 229.990 CLP to 279.990 CLP (21% increase)
  • PS3 12GB: From 169.990 CLP to 189.990 CLP (11% increase)

It’s not too often you see a gaming system’s price increase right after launch. Hopefully if the value of the Chilean Peso improves, Sony will lower the price again.
