145w ago - Approximately nine months have passed since the PlayStation 2 was launched in Brazil, and now Sony has made the PS3 Slim 120GB console available there for around $1,130 USD each.
Believe it or not, that is actually $278 less than originally planned from Sony Style stores for the South American country, as Anderson Gracias explains via Kotaku (linked above), to quote:
"According to Anderson Gracias, division manager of Sony PlayStation Brazil, the original price was to be 2,499 Brazil Reais, or $1,408. In order to stay competitive with the Xbox 360, which sells for R $999 to R $1,599 in the country, Sony is subsidizing part of the cost.
Brazil will get the PlayStation Network in three phases, beginning in 2011 with a Portuguese translation. Then Brazilian content will be added, and finally the service will be tweaked to work with the services available in the country."
145w ago - With PlayStation Move hitting PlayStation Home, even more video footage is surfacing along with a launch date for PS3 fans in Singapore.
According to GameSpot.com, Singapore is set to be the first south-east Asian country to score Sony's motion-sensing add-on for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system, which will arrive on September 15, 2010.
Below is a new Sony PlayStation Move demo video courtesy of V3 via YouTube, and to quote from the video's caption:
"Table Tennis will never be quite the same with Sony's Move motion controller game system that is a bit like Wii only with glowing orbs on.
At Amazon's Christmas Wish List event Suki from Sony demonstrated the Move motion controller with panache. To be released in Europe from 15 September for the PlayStation 3, the Move motion controller will be priced at around £40 but you will also need the PlayStation Eye camera and that will cost about another £30.
You might also want to get the PlayStation Move charging station, to charge up to two Move controllers at once without having to connect them to the PS3 system, and that will set you back about another £30.
