[Update: We are busy collecting more information regarding the news, we are already getting reports in that many of the different online stores have already bumped their prices up as a result]

We have just received information from local online codes website EvoPoints.co.za Microsoft will no longer be issuing any more subscription codes until the price increase kicks in.

Yes, this means that there will be a shortage hitting very soon too.

More after the jump.

This, as well as the fact that they are essentially depriving people of the ability to renew with a code until it costs more.

If you don’t already know, the increased price will take effect on the 1st of November. We expect that this may cause the price of subscriptions from resellers to go up ahead of time, as the codes will be in short supply.

I personally believe that this is quite a devious move from Microsoft and people should have the right to have codes supplied to them at the normal rates until the price increase rolls out. Any thoughts?
