What are the economics behind releasing a console in a poor country but making it more expensive? Is it all taxes on importing the product into the country?

Wouldn't it be cheaper for someone in India to purchase the console from somewhere else since it's region free.

It's the same reason why goods are more expensive in Europe than they are in the US. Those countries charge higher taxes. That cost doesn't get eaten by the manufacturer. You pay for it.

And snuggle the girls be they short or tall,
Then follow young Mat whenever he calls,
To dance with Jak o' the Shadows."
