Do you actually think they are raising the prices just “because”?
I have given you ample explanation for why prices rise, but yet you continue to push this narrative of “its not good for us consumers!”
I get that prices rising affects people’s wallet. But if companies didn’t raise prices to combat the 8.2% inflation we have right now, many would go under. I get that Blizzard is a large corporation, but if they don’t raise their prices to remain profitable, they would need to make changes elsewhere to compensate, particularly on the expense side of the P&L. That means jobs could be cut, quality could go down due to using subpar or inferior supplies, etc.
$10 is not a large increase over 2 years. In fact, its very reasonable and lower than I expected the expansion to cost given the current economic environment we find ourselves in.
