Sony accidentally listed Tekken 2 for $9,999 on the PlayStation Store as it switched over to its new PlayStation Plus tiers.

Several Twitter users brought the mistake to the attention of the wider gaming community and its price was swiftly changed, though even the game director of Tekken got in on the joke.

“What a marvelous price Sony,” Katsuhiro Harada tweeted not just once, but twice, putting a little extra emphasis on his second post (below).

The mistake was made on June 13, the same day as Sony’s revamped PlayStation Plus was released in North America and classic games like Tekken 2 were added to the store. Somewhat ironically, Tekken 2 is actually only available as part of the new PlayStation Plus Premium tier and cannot be bought as a standalone game on PS4 and PS5.

Considering the new service includes more than 700 games, it’s understandable that a couple of errors may have slipped through, even if this was a particularly startling one. We also saw Mr. Driller listed for $9,999.

Tekken 2 was first released in 1995 and is therefore part of the Classic Games Catalogue that comes with the most expensive Premium tier at $119.99 a year. Users paying this amount will also gain access to a plethora of PS4 and PS5 games and limited-time trials for recent releases such as Horizon: Forbidden West.

The Extra tier (at $99.99 a year) includes just the PS4 and PS5 titles on top of the usual PlayStation Plus benefits and its Essential tier (at $59.99 a year) is practically the same as the old service.

The new tiers are now available in most regions but Europe, Australia, and New Zealand are the last to receive them on June 23.
