Update: Sony has reverted the prices and issued an apology:
Whitney Houston product was mistakenly mispriced on the UK iTunes store on Sunday. When discovered, the mistake was immediately corrected. We apologize for any offense caused.
Whitney Houston recently passed away and her death has showcased the dark side of Sony once again.
The company has actually gone ahead and hiked the prices of her work across multiple digital media stores!
Sony probably realizes that a lot of people would be rushing to Apple iTunes and other outlets to buy her songs and albums to relive their past.
Sources say that the company hiked the prices of albums on iTunes from £4.99 to £7.99.
