Which games did you get?

GTA V, UC 123, injustice,NFS: run and Motorcross rally, added ghosts,FIFA14,gt6 and last of us to the collection, rn very happy with the system

You should play the 6 GOW games, Infamous 1 and 2 and Demon's and Dark Souls, Batman Arkham Asylum and City and Red Dead Redemption all of which are better than the games you mentioned. They are also pretty cheap except for the Souls games.

That must be why Sony was fined in places like Australia for Tax Avoidance or has made the list for unethical companies that do profit transferring to avoid tax. yep a highly ethical tax paying business.

backed up with nothing, very bright you are! Even if true, at least it far from corrupt as ms and apple.

BTW, what state are you from?

Christ it is the internet, grow up. it would have taken you all of a few seconds to find relavant links. all companies do their best to avoid every cent of tax they can and yes that included Japanese companies.



Yep gotta buy Gow soon , but I have a lot of backlog as it is, will get there eventually though, thanks for the suggestions :)

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.

Console prices have been basically the same.

PS4 launch price:

400$ without VAT

400€ including VAT

 

Basically one main reason is that in Europe taxes are usually included in the sales price already, unlike the US.

All companies, and persons, should do their best to avoid paying taxes.  That's just basic good sense.  

And I completely agree with that, I'm just pointing out someones hypocrisy.

hypocrisy is someone who blindly support corporation without knowing the truth about them. Not just dodging taxs but many other corruptions

Again, who's the hypocrite?

You should study the truth about the corporations you blindly love before embarrassing yourself...

Not gonna waste anymore time with you.

Oh I forgot the dollar has dropped massively since Trump came to power. You're right. It used to be something like 1.10, now its 1,24 Dollars a Euro.

I was talking from pure percentages. VAT is 20% in the UK (and higher in some countries). Sales tax is less than half of that in the US. Where I live, I only pay 5% sales tax. Was just pointing out that higher taxes is something often forgotten when comparing prices across countries.
