The price is reflective of the costs of delivering to that market. For example, I heard that prices for consoles in Brazil are $800...

That is because the government taxes the crap out of every console sale.

People should get all the info before they tell Microsoft to reconsider the price.

It is not like Microsoft is making $200 more for every console sold in China. The Chinese government which is one of the most controlled/managed economies in the world would not let them do that.
