If you think you're paying too much, try buying it here.

Basic Set = R$ 2.199,00 or 10 monthly payments of R$ 219,90. That's about US$ 1.048,00 or 10x US$ 104,80.

Isn't Brazil the place where the Master System and Genesis/Mega Drive are still really damn popular?

Because, y'know, as outdated as that is, I somehow find it awesome.

It's different. Pretty much only the GPU is way more expensive than it should be. The problem is really only with consoles. 72,8% of taxes.

There has to be some toll-fees preventing this.

They sell local versions from Master System and Genesis consoles with games included in the memory.

Genesis with 81 games - US$ 160.00


Master System with 132 games - about US$ 85.00


However, they don't sell very well anymore. Currently the Xbox 360 is the best selling console here.

It's terrible, but at the same time, we do NOT have an official MSRP for the Wii U in Brazil yet - in fact, its release date is still much in the air, with a very vague "first half of 2013" window. - so import stores (grey or otherwise) are pretty much free to charge whatever they feel like.

Worst thing is that there will be people paying that.

If it's for personal use and the total shipment worth under a certain (usually high) amount, it should be free. I don't know anything about Brazilian law though.

This is a really expensive place, around the internet you can find the Deluxe Set for USD739 to USD 857.

It's still expensive, but a little bit more doable to Console Launches here.

But yeah...

thank god my friend could find one for me when he was in boston. I'm with mine for a week. Sad part: brazilian's eshop isn't avaiable and the brazilian flag doesn't appear in the nano assault neo. Also, is really annoying having to change the system's country everytime I want to access US eshop and then having to change back to Brazil to get access to miiverse in my account. You can't access online services if your console and your NNID have different countries.

I've always wondered, all the Wii-s and 3DS-s you see in markets and stuff in Thailand. Are they pirate, fake or just a plastic box without content? If you actually buy one, what do you get? Something pirate-y that can actually play wii-games, something that play tetris or nothing at all?

You have to pay a customs tax of 60% on anything above 50$.

In Sweden you get a toll-fee for basically everything from outside the EU. Sweden actually has quite liberal import laws, something wich can't be said about Brazil. Countries with a protectionist economy genrally have tons of laws preventing import, even for personal use.

Not to mention an extra tax if it comes via courier. Yeah, add an extra 18% - varying by state - to the product's value if it comes via DHL / FedEx or something like that.

With around US$ 1,100 you can get a really good machine. A Top tier machine with US$ 1,700 or more.

Yeah but it will most likely be stopped by customs forcing you to pay 60% of the total value on taxes.
