- Hard to believe after Sony's PlayStation 2 console just turned nine years old
it would finally hit Brazil, eh?
That is exactly what Sony did today, according to Kotaku (linked above), the PS2 has officially launched in Brazil.
To quote: "It's priced at R$799, which works out to be around USD$465. So, yes, it's expensive to buy video games in Brazil.
Our man Pedro tells us that with a nine year-old console only just launching, there obviously isn't an official PS3 presence, though he says Sony do sell some older PS3 games. For R$199 (USD$115).
Ever wanted to know why piracy was rife in South America, those prices might get you in the right direction."
