So... yeah. 6500 pesos. That's roughly 1200 US Dollars.

Or, to put it in another way, that's about 25% over my current monthly salary.

I guess that's it for me as a gamer.

Half that amount. Inflation skyrocketed on the past three years or so though.

PS3 launched in my country for almost $1000. With PS4, we will be very close to the official EU pricing [+50-100 euros]. Progress.

According to Wikipedia, PS3 launch price for the 40GB version was 2799 pesos or $883. So the PS4 is significantly higher in price, although there are loads of factors that could cause that outside of Sony's control I'm sure.

Wow, so I'm guessing wages aren't keeping up with inflation? Same as everywhere, but extra terrible when inflation is that significant.

I make roughly the same as you based on what you said, which is not very much money here (Canada), but it's enough that I could choose to buy a PS4 if I was thrifty for a month (ate out less, didn't buy other games, etc.). I don't really have to make a point of setting money aside.

Is importing an option for you? That's a ludicrous amount of money. By the sounds of it though, it's your government you should be angry at rather than Sony.

A brand new PS3 is about 4000 pesos now. I bought mine for 2800 two years ago for reference. 360 is about the same price.

It has to be lower than the Xbone price though... since both will be produced overseas, I don't think that the PS4 will break through the R$ 2000 barrier.

Well, actually I hope not.

that seems so fucked. Can you explain why importing is out of the question? Since the conversion is 5.7 pesos to 1 US dollar it seems like you could import for ~$3500 pesos. Unless they tax you like 600 US to bring it in.

I knew Argentina's government has been incredibly stupid the past few years but I didn't know inflation and other issues were THAT bad since the last console launch. You know it's bad when the government starts bringing up the Falklands again as if that fools people.

Sorry to hear that it's so expensive. :(

Xbox One official price here is R$2200,00 (US$1000,00). Not as bad as Argentina (still bad though).

Not a walk in the aprk, but not too hard either.
Yes. Taxes are the biggest problems. In Brazil the import tax on gaming stuff is around 60%.
It affects everything not produced in Brazil.
