It's not uncommon for gamers to hold off on purchasing new consoles, games and accessories until a price drop; what's is uncommon is waiting, and being rewarded with a price increase. The Toronto Sun reports that starting today, the PlayStation 4 will cost $50 more in Canada, up from its previous price of $399.99.

Unfortunately, the bad news doesn't end there. The PlayStation Camera and DualShock 4 are also rising in price, from $59.99 to $64.99. Two games exclusive to Sony's system - Infamous: Second Son and MLB 14: The Show - are also getting bumped, from $64.99 to $69.99.

Sony said the price changes are being made to "respond to changes in the market environment." The Canadian Dollar is currently weak against the US Dollar, but Sony did not specifically cite this as an influencing factor. Meanwhile, Microsoft told the Sun that there were no current plans for a price hike in the land of hockey and maple leaves.
