252w ago - 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.

Ever wanted to know why piracy was rife in South America, those prices might get you in the right direction."
