Fall Guys PS5 PS4 PlayStation

The price of Fall Guys' in-game premium currency, Show-Bucks, is set to increase in the UK, Canada and Mexico. The price hike comes on 17th July, the same day Epic Game's other cash cow, Fortnite, will see its V-Bucks getting a price rise as well because of "economic factors like inflation and currency fluctuations".

The updated prices were posted on the Fall Guy's website and are in line with the increase to Fortnite's own. We won't belabour the point, but this is more than likely to ensure profits remain in line with inflation, as Show-Bucks aren't a real currency, exist in a closed economic environment sheltered from outside forces, and are ostensibly used by fictional, roughly humanoid beings colloquially known as Beans.

The worst part is you just know that other publishers are already licking their chops at the prospect, so expect to see similar increases from other service games in the future. Times are tough, even for corporations valued (after Sony's latest investment) somewhere north of $32 billion, apparently. Which service game do you think raises its prices next?
