Sticker Shock: PS4 To Cost $1850 In Brazil

Playstation fans in Brazil are looking for a second job as Sony announced their upcoming next generation console will cost nearly $1850 USD in the South American country.  The reason for the high cost has to do with the high import tax placed on electronics and other goods not produced in the country.  For some Brazilians it may be cheaper to fly the US buy the console and fly back.   Sony has decided to pass most of the cost onto the consumer.

Microsoft on other hand has decided to eat the majority of the cost of their more expensive console and will only charge Brazilians approximately $1000 for the Xbox One.
