The lights are on
And you thought $599 U.S. dollars was a lot.
A post on the Brazilian PlayStation Blog announced the price of Sony's new console in the country, and it's a whopper. The PS4 will retail for $3999 Real (the official currecy of Brazil), which translates to around $1850 U.S. dollars (give or take based on the fluctuations of the exchange rate).
Hope gamers in Brazil have been saving their pennies. If not, they can always go buy Microsoft's "affordable" Xbox One, which will only set them back $2,200 Real, or $1000.

Our Take:Gaming in Brazil is expensive! I don't know much about world currency markets, but I cannot imagine a game console in the world that is worth nearly $2000, or even $1000. I'm sure they have PCs in Brazil; that sounds like a better plan to me.

It'd be cheaper to fly to the US and buys seems like
Isn't the PS2 still in full production there? On another note, maybe there will be fewer Brazillians annoying me in BF4 on PS4.
The average Brazilian income is only between $11,500 and $12,000 USD per year according to most statistics. No one is going to fork over that much of their annual income for a video game system.
But it wont cost 599 in the US .
So gaming in Brazil is very expensive than the other countries, THAT'S INSANE!
guess the USA isn't that bad
Please tell me this is another typo or something.
THE HELL!? In Perú it cost $600. How in the blue hell did they manage to ask so much and get away with it!? Some kind of authority in Brazil should ban that and the Xbox One. The prices are way to expensive. And here I'm complaining that the PS4 is going to cost $200 more.
Holy crap! Feel sorry for the gamer's in Brazil to have to pay that much for any console. That sucks!
What about microsoft? how will their standards hold up?
399 in US actually but still Brazil gamers got it tough!
Now I feel bad for b**ching about the PS3 when it was 600 dollars. Damn, that's rough.
Dang. Both consoles just lost in Brazil. PC gaming probably is king there, cuz I don't know how anyone could afford Playstation or X-Box's brands. . . double dang.
Well since it region free, I'd order it online! Save big time cash! Screw those high prices lol.
CARALHO!! that's all I have to say about this.
