Although another source I say is for pre-orders, this is the first of the "newer" sources that state it will be permanent without mentioning pre-orders.
Which is the reason i put "may' as apparently there is a clash between sources on whether this will be only for pre-orders, or this will be a final stay with official game prices. A trend I hope will not happen as certain shared retailers with the U.S. might get ideas and do the same thing.
Now according to http://www.playstationlifestyle.net/2014/01/20/pslssa-eb-games-canada-raises-prices-of-many-pre-order-titles-by-5-other-retailers-may-follow/ It's pre-orders as well as 6 others I found. although MORE say straight out it will be an end all be all price for games in canada.
Regardless it is still a factual price increase of inconvenience, as the pre-order price argument is true regardless if it's the stay price or not, so it's clear that canada is going in that direction, with Bestbuy and Ebgames.gamestop pulling in front. Which are shared companies with the U.S. we all know this is coming, and I hope it does not, but the first steps are already there.
It may even go higher, but let us try and hope for the best with the price raises.
