Sony Brazil just revealed that PS5 will cost R$ 4.999 and DE will be 4.499.

Games will now cost between 249,90 and 349,90.

What do you think of these prices? Are you pre-ordering it? If so, at which store?

Consoles prices are good enough, IMO. But game's prices are pretty steep, makes me think twice about getting them day one.

Let's also link the best stores for pre-order, maybe they'll release some bundles.

BTW, what the hell were they thinking? R$500,00 difference for the DE?

It doesn't even pay 2 games at 350...

Infelizmente o Bostil tem uma população que pode pagar e aceita qualquer merda, logo esses preços. Mil reais a mais que o pro, os dois custando 399usd. iPhone 11 custa 650usd e é vendido por 4500 tbm.

Terra da bandidagem mesmo.

E as coisas vem piorando, eu lembro que logo depois do lançamento do PS4 tu já encontrava por 2 mil reais em qualquer esquina, eu paguei R$ 1.700 na época e foi tipo sei lá em maio de 2014. Agora é bem capaz de manter esse preço perto do oficial por algum tempo, o câmbio foi pro caralho e com o governo e a equipe econômica batendo cabeça vem mais fudeção por aí.

Fuck no.

Não. Sou da turma do PC agora. kkkķkkkkk

The console prices are kinda good considering the raping exchange rate but the game prices are going to remain high as fuck for the whole generation even if someday the dollar goes down because companies are greedy as fuck and Brazilians are idiots by nature.

In a few months the grey market prices will be better anyway.
The only game i'm interested in is GoW. I can wait.

Actually that price is similar to European prices.

It is a way better situation than PS4.
I will preorder tomorrow.

Well, given that Sony just announced they're closing their major manufacturing plant in the country, Brazilians will have to get their machines imported, which makes the price more than double given that the country heavily taxes trade.

Crazy to think that when I lived in the country, decades ago, we got Sonic & Knuckles before any other region in the world.

But I heard PlayStation departament still Very much present.

Just remember that few days Ago we had fucking ps5 boards during brasileirão marches. When we ever thought we would witness that?

That IS some hope

Why are you blaming Sony? Are the price not that high due your government, high import taxes?
Trust me. I had a gaming store for almost 5 years. We knew exactly what was tax and what was "let's price it high because Brazilians pay".

The government plays a part but search for "Custo Brasil" and translate it. It's not just the government. Companies know Brazilians love to pay high prices to show off to their stupid friends. And people who actually care about savings get fucked in the process. Paying high prices for supposed status is in the DNA of this stupid country. A Land Rover is considered a luxury car here. Total fucking joke of a country.

Sorry but nope.
The price is still salty. I'm in no hurry to jump to PS5 yet, so I can wait.

But quite frankly, I was really expecting a very dumbfied price. Something around R$7.000(PS4 original price here) ~8.000

Imagina o preço do demons souls, vai custar uns 400R$.

Se ta loco.

They said PS5 game prices are about R$300,00. Which is basically the price of some retarded games, mostly from Nintendo.

I'm glad I made the switch to PC gaming. The console price is not as bad as thought it would be, but those game prices are just ridiculous.

Probably it sounds weird for other countries but IMO PC is the cheaper option in the medium/long term.

I will do the same I did with the current gen: wait 2 years, when there is enough true next gen games and get a PC with similar specs. I saved a lot of money since PC games have a much more fair price.

I wish I could buy the PS5. Heck, I wish I could buy all the consoles and have a huge gaming collection. But with these prices, even if I was rich I would not get it.

To add a bit of context.

PS4 was launched here at R$4000 when $1 = $2.35

PS5 is being launched at R$5000 when $1 = R$5.25

The dollar doubled the value but Sony only added R$1000 to their prices. It is actually an odd situation where the PS5 is very close to the price in Europe.

We don’t have the most expensive PS5 in the world like we had with PS4.

That is a big win.

Ah nope? TLOU2 price was 280,00R$. You add another 10$, it's going to be around 350R$.
The season pass prices should go up to 35$ in general as well, so that's another 120-150R$.
So... close to R$500,00 it is for a complete game experience next gen in brasil for PS5.
