I used to live in Brasil when I was a little kid. I visit it every Summer. The ps3 costs around 3000-3500 reals which is equivelant to about 1500$. Yes, electronics are really expensive over there.

Just waiting to see who's gonna be the first to post some denigrating played-out comment about the Wii being a ripoff.

The Wii is a bloody RIP-OFF, you can buy a Ps3 and a 360... with some games for that price!... LOL j/ks.
Thats $100 more than what you pay here and I thought we paid the most for electronics.

I hate how some people from America and Japan complain about how much they are charged for electronics. They should try live where I live! $1,400 for a Ps3, can't get a Wii, can't get a 360. I ended up paying $600 for my 360 with 2 games.

Ya I'm American and I know we get consoles pretty cheap compared to many places around the world, but where do u live? Sometimes I feel like the exhorbitant cost of console gaming in certain parts of the world is keeping PC gaming afloat.

I live in basically darkness from a gaming standpoint. We only get games which are over 6 months old here. That is why I rely on going to South Africa at various intervals during the year to increase my supply of gaming material.

So if the Wii costs $1,100 in Brazil...then how much would it be to buy a Gamecube over there as theyre basically the same product....
