Multiple users are reporting that the PlayStation Store is listing certain games at a £10,000 price point (or even 10,000 of the local currency outside the UK).
Currently, the pricing glitch appears to be affecting GreedFall, which is part of this month’s PS Plus line-up. The issue was first reported to IGN by Twitter user Andreas K.:
@AskPlayStation yo @AskPS_UK do you reckon this is a good price… #Greedfall £10,000.00 for PS Plus members? Assetto Corsa for £6.24? Are these your monthly PS Plus games? #Playstation #Sony #psplus #AssettoCorsaCompetizione @eurogamer @IGNUK pic.twitter.com/U5E2JZUjZ4

It’s not clear at time of writing what is causing the glitch, nor how widespread it is, but screenshots posted seem to point to it being an issue on the PS4 version of the store in particular – we’ve been unable to replicate the issue on PS5 or browsers.
The pricing glitch has seemingly been appearing since at least the end of last year. On December 27, Raymond Chan in the IGN UK Podcast Facebook group spotted Dead Cells listed at £10,000, while Garyz on Twitter saw Friday The 13th at the same price last week. We’ve contacted Sony for comment.
In other PS4 news, Sony Japan has today reportedly announced that it will discontinue all PS4 Pro models, and all but one PS4 Slim model, in order to manufacture more PS5s. However, Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan has made clear that it will continue to support PS4 with games until at least 2022.
