Yes... consoles are more or less expensive in my country.

But I think they are worth it.

I would like to add that PC hardware is also more expensive in my country but PC games release at $20 to $40 new for most publishers which is why its considered cheap.

true , but PC hardware doesnt have as high as a price disparity though, especially since ryzen.

That's not true as each individual component is more expensive. Together that cost adds up to about the same as consoles.



"Sony keeps fucking the consumers with their pricing strategy Xbox could make a comeback and I hope they do because PlayStation brings no discounts at all and that's just bad for consumers."

Was that a serious point? I couldn't take it so. If it was genuine representation of idea, please be informed what has a better market-share already. That was no fluke. At this point their VR hardware seems over-priced imho. The console(current sKU PS4 Pro) has been doing so well with features avaialble in PS plus, not to mention it's upcoming exclusive line-up. 2016 games like Deus-Ex are already free on PS plus and Dishonored 2 is available for 11 Euros slashed from 30 Euros(timed offer). Yeah no discounts at all... coming from your own perspective for poor defense.

Think you need to read the title. Its the Indian market we are discussing.

In my experience only the graphic cards seemed overpriced, but those are pricier elsewhere too nowadays.

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.

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

Not gonna waste anymore time with you.

LOL I don't love any corporations. I recognise ALL of them for what they are, businesses looking to maximise their investments. that includes all of them regardless of country, trying to pretend one set of companies is more "moral" is childish in the extreme.

I understand the MSRP in your region. That was well understood and related to. But what does it take for you to create a US or Euro PSN account to claim the benefit? You can still redeem digital vouchers via amazon US, if credit card validations are georestricted.  I reside in the middle-east where I get nothing out locally in terms of discount. We are in the same ship technically, but I do still find the means to access both US PSN and Euro accounts. What you did with your OP was baseless representation/disregard of gamers who are already taking advantage of services even with geo-restrictions.

As I clearly implied, look at the current market share despite higher hardware with higher price...They will have to start reducing the MSRP sooner to sell better.

Consumer shouldn't have to do with workarounds to get the same deal people in another region have. Not all consumers know the way to do it and they shouldn't require. Steam has great discounts everywhere including India. That's the way to do it.
