Sony apologise for Whitney price rise 'mistake'

Anyone believe them?

Whitney Houston has experienced that strange posthumous sales surge that seems to be a factor of modern fame. Seven of her singles may make the top 40 this weekend, and an album looks likely to crack the top ten.

But in the hours following her death, Sony raised the price of two greatest hits collections by £3. After some understandable anger, Sony have dropped the prices and issued a contrite statement: "Whitney Houston product was mistakenly mispriced on the UK iTunes store on Sunday.  When discovered, the mistake was immediately corrected. We apologise for any offence caused."

Now, we conducted a quick and wholly unrepresentative poll about this, and we discovered exactly zero people believing Sony. Overzealous greedy exec was deemed more likely.
