Sony: “We Will Not Rest Until the PS4 Is Affordable for Every Gamer in Brazil”

It's known by now that the PS4 in Brazil is going to be mindbogglingly costly (the local equivalent of $1,884), but at the press conference currently going on at the Brazil Game Show in São Paulo Sony Computer Entertainment promised that things will change.

Sony has no blame it's the stupid Brazilian Government.

Xsilver1876d ago

Don't waste your time explaining it to him he's looking for something to downplay Sony with smh.

GamersRulz1876d ago

It's not Sony to blame when Government add 70% tax.

Also to add Sony dont profit anymore from it being so heavily priced the entity profiting are the brazilian government. Both Sony and the consumers are going to hurt from this since Sony will obviously sell much less than they want until they can manufacture them there, which I guess if thats the Brazilian government intention to create jobs it will inevitably work.

Fix it in South Africa as well, please :)

I dont think there's a big enough user base to validate a manufacturing plant for PS4's in South Africa. However I may be wrong tho.

Bakkies1875d ago

Yeah, the user base isn't huge. There is a middleman though, Ster Kinekor, who is involved in the distribution of the Playstation brand in SA and the middle-east. The people from these regions pay $700 for the PS4, like the user from Egypt below.

I just hope things will change.
