Sony hikes Indian game prices as Rupee decline continues

Sony has increased the prices of upcoming PS3 titles Beyond: Two Souls and Gran Turismo 6.

Both games were previously priced at Rs 2,999, but are now increased to Rs 3,499. The price hikes are attributed to the continuing decline of the Rupee, which today stands at Rs 67 against the US Dollar.

It is widely expected that other publishers will follow suit. Games from several publishers are currently priced at Rs 2,799 or Rs 2,999, and many of these are expected to increase.

Retailer buzz suggests that Grand Theft Auto 5, which is only two weeks away from release, will also receive a price hike, although the exact amount is not known yet.
