FIFA 23 launches worldwide on September 23 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X, PC and Stadia. The game can also be pre-ordered through the official channels. Now a reliable tipster is claiming that the publisher EA Sports and its Indian distributor E-xpress have increased the prices of FIFA 23 in the country. It is believed that only PlayStation and Xbox versions of the game will be affected by this alleged price increase.
According to tipster 0xSkeptic (@RishiAlwani), the cost of the FIFA 23 Standard Edition on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S/X is increased to Rs. 4,799 of Rs. 4,499. Likewise, this version could cost Rs. 4,299 instead of Rs. 3,999 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Alwani speculates that EA may have taken this step due to currency fluctuations.
At the time of publishing this story, FIFA 23 Standard Edition is still available on Xbox and PlayStation at its original price. However, the tipster suggests they may be changing soon.
FIFA 23 prices in India recently caused a buzz when Epic Games accidentally listed the game for Rs. 4.8 on his online store. Early birds could get their hands on the game for this price instead of the Rs. 4,799 normal demand. No other platform experienced this error, including Steam.
Epic Games eventually corrected the error. EA Sports then sent a series of emails apologizing for the mistake. Plus, it assured those early buyers that they would be able to keep the copy.
FIFA 23 will be the last game in the franchise that spans decades and will be called EA Sports FC starting next year as it introduces the women’s leagues to the franchise for the first time. The game offers several new features such as the enhanced HyperMotion2 technology, women’s competitions, and more.
FIFA 23 will be released on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series S/X on September 23.
