Sony has commented:

Quote:

We have read thousands of your comments and heard your frustration loud and clear about the PlayStation 4 retail price of R$3,999 in Brazil. We want to emphasize that it isnít in the interest of Sony Computer Entertainment America to sell PS4 units at this high retail price, as itís not good for our gamers and itís not good for the PlayStation brand. We have always maintained an open and honest dialogue with PlayStation Nation in Brazil, we want to be fully transparent as to what makes up this price, so gamers can be fully informed and make their own conclusion.

There is a lot of confusion and inaccurate information spreading online about Brazilís import tax policies online and the PlayStation 4 retail price, so weíd like to set the record straight: of the R$3,999 gamers pay, 63% of the retail price goes to offset the various taxes that are applied in the process of importation. Some do not consider the IPI on the distributor price and PIS/COFINS on retailers price and much less, include the ICMS and ICMS-ST taxes. You can see a true breakdown of the price model at Valor Economico http://www.valor.com.br/empresas/33111.... The other 15.5% goes to retailer margin and 21.5% to PS4 Transfer Price (equivalent to USD$390).

We will continue to talk with the relevant government agencies to help us reduce the heavy tax burden that gamers, retailers and Sony Computer Entertainment America are paying. Our primary focus right now is to ensure we are in full compliance with Brazilian import tax laws and look ahead the opportunity to locally manufacturing the PS4, which will significantly reduce the retail price. Sony Computer Entertainment began locally manufacturing PlayStation 3 in Manaus this past May and it immediately made PS3 more affordable to gamers in Brazil. PlayStation is fully committed to Brazilian gamers and we are proud of the strong relationship weíve been able to build over the years. We are doing everything possible at this moment to reduce the PS4 price for you. Thank you for your thousands of passionate comments...we are in this together!

So you can't blame Sony for this as it's a government issue.

Yet another thread on 360hq saying how bad the ps4s going to be. At least Sony's making an attempt to talk with the government about this issue.

Seems to be way more positive.

Maybe dont be a douchebag over this just because I'm tired of seeing way more negative news on these console, like the thread the other day about it implying it ws overheating when it was clearly just a game glitch.

The thread title seemed like anotehr attack on the console.

Sounds like a great opportunity for anyone that wants to start a Black Market for PS4 in Brasil. Smuggle them in and you can make out pretty good.

The thread wasn't referring to any bad things about the PS4, in fact; I think their both going to be good consoles. Even if it was a bash to Sony, overall this is a Microsoft fan-based website so it is somewhat expected. Razz

i never really understand the console wars, its not like one will destroy the other, sega vs nintendo before sony and m$ got in on it, i guess nintendo won? back when games were for kids and arcades were for teens. look at us we grew into adults and are now turning into blubbering fanbois and trolls lol

im a fan of ps2(i have 4) ps3 (although never played one though but would like one, even this late in the game)
im a fan of xbox original(i have 7) & 360

these are the machines, and unless you can upgrade the hardware, lets just play the damn games and talk crap.
