EA hikes game prices by up to 133 percent in India

EA is causing big controversy in India as the game publisher announced massive price hikes for its video games. The game publisher previously offered steep discounts to reflect the lower purchasing power of the average Indian gamer, but this is now coming to an end due to widespread abuse from gamers from other countries that were using India-based proxies to buy games at reduced price.

VR Zone suggests EA should have taken a lesson from Steam's region locks, but instead EA implemented a massive price hike for its PC and console games. The price hike depends on the game, but some titles like the upcoming Battlefield 4 now cost 133 percent more than they did before!
EA said that it would price the latest iteration of its FIFA sports franchise at 2,499 rupees and Battlefield 4 as well as Need for Speed: Rivals at 3,499 rupees. Compared to the price of last year’s titles in those respective franchises of 1,499 rupees that’s a 66 to 133 percent hike. On the console side prices also rose: up to 3,499 rupees from an average of 2,999 last year. The average PC game in India costs between 999 to 1,499 rupees.
