Usually following a game system’s release, the manufacturer considers a price drop to help gain an audience. However, Sony’s Canadian division is actually going the other way, and hiking prices for its PlayStation 4 hardware and software in Canada.

The system, which initially launched for $400 Canadian dollars, will now go up in price to $450, as of today. In addition, accessories like the DualShock 4 controller and PS4 camera will also go up approximately $5 in price, and game software like Infamous: Second Son and MLB 14: The Show will also go up to $70 apiece.

Sony said that the price increases were being made “to respond to changes in the market environment,” although it didn’t offer a clear explanation of exactly what that means. Part of it could be due to the weakness of the Canadian dollar in the face of the American economy.
