TOKYO (Reuters) – Sony said on Thursday it was raising the price of its PlayStation 5 (PS5) games console in select markets, including Europe, Japan and Britain, due to global economic pressures, including the rise in inflation.

The Japanese electronics group said it was raising the price of the version of the console equipped with a disc player to 549.99 euros, against 499.99 euros previously in Europe, and that it was increasing similar to Japan.

Sony clarified that there would be no price increase in the United States.
