It appears that, in some cases, the PSN Rock Band
track packs in the UK are receiving a price hike in comparison to the individually purchased songs. An EU PlayStation forum user notes the discrepancy
, which applies no discount to pack purchases, making it cheaper to purchase all of a pack's tracks individually. The issue had previously been contained to packs with over three songs, but next week's update
appears to break that trend
. However, reviewing previous weeks with track packs of three, it appears that the EU and UK pricing were accidentally reversed for next week, but we won't be able to confirm that until the update goes live.
We've confirmed the pricing anomaly for the UK PSN Store and we're following up with Harmonix
to figure out what's going on. Check out examples of the pricing inconsistencies after the break.
: Harmonix responded to Joystiq, saying, "We are aware of the issue and working with SCEE to resolve the problems asap."
