As someone who was looking for a PS5 but wasn't in a hurry... I was happy to pay $749 AUD (Australian) for the time I could find a disc version of one.
However now they have upped the price to $799 AUD or around $35 USD... I will just get my second Series X. The price increase is apparently effective immediately.
It looks like the major news sites that are reporting this Sony console price increase are saying that North America have been spared. Asia and Europe are feeling Sony's wrath. However this is the 1st time I can recall a console coming up to it's 3rd Christmas has jumped in price. Infact... I can't recall a console ever going up in price! I normally expect a pretty fair discount or a slim version by the 3rd Christmas.
Poor form Sony!
