Sony has announced a long list, covering pretty much every product type they make, that will see an average 14% price hike coming on February 1st. The company cites a range of factors, including the cost of raw materials, manufacturing and distribution – all “external environment” issues beyond their control – as the cause for the price increase.
The company lists is Bravia TVs, Blu-Ray players and recorders, sound bars, home theatre systems, and more, including “digital single-lens camera, digital single-lens camera α [E-mount] lens, digital video camera, digital still camera, professional camcorders”. Fortunately, for the rest of the world, it seems that the price increases may be limited to sales within Japan for now, although this may expand into other regions at some point.
