Time to bring the PS4 price back down to $399 in Canada again?

So, alot of you may know, a few months ago Sony increased the price of the PS4 in Canada to $450. The two main reasons.. or the only reasons were because the canadian dollar wasn't doing well at all. It had come down to 92 cents compared to one American dollar or something like that. And on top of that, Sony had a what.. 78% chance of bankruptcy in the next two years? Both of those two reasons combined pretty much forced Sony to raise the price in Canada by $50. And I can understand that.

 

But now the chances of the PS4 going bankruptcy in the next couple of years has decreased drastically and is now relatively low. Not to mention, it appears as though the Canadian dollar is heading in the right direction again. I think they should put the price back to how it was at launch. An affordable $399. I also think Sony should realize that the Xbox community in Canada is growing much too fast for comfort, since the XB1 is now $399 w/o kinect and the PS4 is still $450 in Canada. Anyone agree?

Take it up with your government. They're the ones who are responsible for bolstering the value of the Canadian dollar against the U.S. dollar. Not Sony.
