That's good for Brazil's economy, and Brazilian gamers as well. Cool move from Sony, especially when gaming is definitely not the most accessible means of entertainment in South America.

Brazil's in for treat.

Good news, it's just a shame PS3's weren't made Brazilian from the start, it would have sorted out any hairy issues from the get go.

That's fantastic! :D

Brazilians will now get more games localized into Brazilian Portuguese and the cost of games/systems will go down. It's also great for the local economy. $300,000,000 over the next 12 months? Awesome.

Yeah, even before the PS3 not being manufactered here, we were getting some games from Ubisoft, Activision, localized in Portuguese, but now we expect more games localized in our language.

Why did I get disagrees? Do you know?

No, I really don't know. Maybe because you wrote "Brazil" and some people don't like Brazil? ;-)

The big problem is that sony practices a very high price for sales in Brazil, it is cheaper to buy the ps3 imported than domestic, while the MS sells their consoles here for a great price, Sony needs to analyze its shape well sales here to not end up losing money.

Vc já está dizendo que o PS3 vai ser caro sem mesmo terem lançado ele fabricado no Brasil? Não entendi. Não seria melhor esperar pra ver o preço que vão lançar o console que será feito no BR? Hoje claro que é mais caro comprar aqui do que lá fora... pois os mesmos são importados e pagam impostos ao governo nas lojas que vendem, tipo Americanas, Saraiva, etc... e se vc compra fora não paga impostos. Vamos aguardar e ver por qual preço vai sair o console agora sendo fabricado aqui, mas mesmo assim espere por algo mais caro do que comprar em sites como Mercado Livre...

When they were made in Japan, Brazilian migrants pretty much filled the factories anyway.
