PlayStation 3 Price Hike in Hong Kong, Singapore
For citizens of Singapore, your PlayStation 3's once cost 559SGD, and today they retail for 599SGD - a hike of 40SGD, or about $30USD. No word on why the consoles have increased prices, but it could be purely because of economic reasons; Singapore is experiencing a 25 year record high inflation rate. As for Hong Kong, we're not entirely sure what the reason could be. So if you've got an idea, leave a message in the comment box below.
Either way, price increases aren't fun. With the story about GTAIV missing a feature, Metal Gear Online Beta being delayed, and this, today's Monday seems rather uneventful. Maybe Garfield was onto something, after all. No word on whether or not this price hike includes other Asian countries, so feel free to tip us off if you see anything.
