@mb: It went from being well over the US Dollar (upwards of somewhere around $1.10 a year or two ago) to dropping to around $0.87 (and dropping) the last week or so before leveling out around $0.90. I could see a small price raise, but this might be a bit much.
It really sucks. I used to order tons of stuff from the US, but this sudden 10%+ premium is making it not even close to worth it anymore. Of course the business types tout this as amazing for the Canadian economy because US companies will buy more from Canada now, but for the average consumer it really sucks, especially when combined with rising food prices. Some types of meats are speculated to go up in price here big time.
Of course, in line with this Sony announcement, a lot of companies will take this opportunity to crank up prices and then not bring them back in line when our currencies equalize again. They did that last time.
