I doubt EA will Change the prices because they just wanted too. I know EA is a greedy corporation, but I doubt they change this just because they wanted to. There must be an economic explanation in this price change.

Prices are going up in general though - cost of food, etc.
We are all eventually doomed.
EA could cut costs by outsourcing to India/China though - ie effectively do what the clothing/call centre, etc industries do. People in poorer countries can create a content - it's not something that is tied to Western-only skills.
A non-professional Simmer can create content for The Sims 4 and hand it over for free on a modding site. Some people will even argue that some CC creators produce higher quality end-products than EA.
What makes EA's own content stand out is access to the integration of a dynamic object. The logic of it is simple enough - any half-wit could add locks to doors or change EA's woeful door knock sound with an actual doorbell sound that a Simmer can actually hear and think 'Someone is visiting my Sim'.

For a long time we were paying the same face price in Canada as in the US, but $10 US for an SP is almost $12.50 Canadian. I guess it's no surprise that someone finally noticed and raised our price from $10 Canadian for an SP to $13.

So, in Brazil, all packs, game packs and expansions will cost R$1450,00 (without the base game price).
60% of Brazilian workers earn less than this per month.*
R$1450,00/36months( since the first pack release) = R$40,00 per month. THIS IS TOO MUCH! This game doesn't worth it.
Today, i'm unistalling my THE SIMS4.
