Why consoles cost so much in Brazil. In Finland it cost 379 euros and we have to remember that our salaries are like 10 times bigger also than average Brazilian. That insane price.


Huge import taxes. The brazilian government hates free trade, and that mostly hurts the Brazilians.


And I thought that we have here in Northern Europe high taxes. Even that I earn a good amount of money every month, I would not buy Playstation 4 for that price tag even that I'm huge Playstation fan. With that money I could get a good used car here.

AFAIK those $4000 are Brazilian real, more or less 1300 US$ or 1150€. It's still a huge amount for a console, but it's much more reasonable.



Dude, correct the OP. It isn`t $4000, it is BRL 4000.

The way you wrte, sounds like USD 4k, XD.

And yes, great news.



I need to do some research. I knew the Brazilian market was a decent size but I didn't know it was big enough for several companies to start manufacturing there to ease the prices. Good for Brazil though, those prices were ridiculous.



Thanks jlmurph!

I've changed it but I only copied and pasted it! :)

I remember in my latin american business class - the professor was continually bitching about Brazil and how unfriendly it was to foreign corps.



I wonder what they're manufacturing targets will be? Will they target estimates of what they can sell in that region only or will they ramp up production and ship WW?

I wonder if now the PS4s are going to Samba their way off the box when you open it.


That was racist

You would be surprised that Samba is not even remotely as popular here as outsiders may think.



it will not drop in price, why? because the real is gonna crash and burn.

No it wouldn't surprise me, it isn't like everyone is standing on the streets here in Puerto Rico playing and dancing Plena, Bomba, Salsa, Reggeaton either. :P
