Sony PlayStation 4 in Brazil will cost you a limb Sony has unveiled the price for their upcoming PlayStation 4 console today for Brazilian gamers, and the price is outrageous.
The electronics giant says the console will sell for Brazilian Real 3,999 in the country, the equivalent of about $1830 in US Dollars.

Games will be no better, selling for Real 179, or about $82 in USD. The increased costs are due to import fees, taxes and tariffs, and South America generally has a smaller gaming audience for next-gen consoles as markets saturate for previous generations.

The rival Xbox One will also sell at a premium, selling for Real 2199, about $1010, but clearly a huge discount to the Sony system.

unfortunately, the women of brazil dont look hot anymore. been there 4 times recently. theyve grown fat hips, tummies stick out and got malformed legs. i think its due to pollution and genetic defects of the people.

This whole point of overcharged consoles for Brazil is moot..........

Ebay will be of great benefit here as I might buy a couple just to sell for a 100 dollar profit to them.
