sucks to be korean on some levels.. and i recall some article about the playstation 2 (yes, the second one!) just been released in Brazil maybe 2 years ago at full price + games
Almost gave me a fucking heart attack... I thought the scene had some really early dump of Flute. Oh well.
Good for the Koreans.
At least they got MapleStory DS
Sucks to be Korean...Unless you enjoy speaking japanese! Then you get everything first!
oh boy, i almost forgot that im still waiting for the other layton games ...
That's not true, you've read something fake. Playstation 2 has been released here since 2005*
Yea, still kinda late, but we did not get the PS2 on 2008/2009. That would've been fucking unfair.
You must have probably read about the PS3. But then, the PS3 has been released here last year, so you must have read about another country.
*However, as Sony only was in Brazil starting from 2009, officially, the Playstation 2 has been released November 13th 2009, but you could buy imported ones, which were much more cheap than the "official version".
Don't get me wrong, you're Brazilian and u know your stuff, but about this, Im even sure you're wrong.
The ps2 came Officially out just 2 or 3 years ago.
But you're also right saying that you could get the ps2 before too, but it was imported.
Anyways, most people don't see a difference in Price between Imported and officially supported consoles, because of very high Taxes (Consoles are seen from the Government as useless for the society and it has something like luxury Tax) and that sellers put again 50% - 100% on the price.
At least thats how they explained it to me summer 08 in Rio.
To get the point across, an imported PS3 with over 100% taxes costed less than the official national PS3 costs now. So it has more to do with corruption and greed than taxes. Don't fall for that bullshit that companies use to overprofit from a developing country. They are just being little bitches about it and aching to mantain a status quo of almost colonialistic proportions.
yea, but dont u think SONY and Nintendo would make a lot more cash if they would sell it as cheap as in the US or Europe etc.?
I remember that the ps2 was 400 dollar in Rio and in Europe u could get for 79 Euro.
And even if, like in every country, there a lot of rich guys, the masses cant afford that easy to pay such a high amount of money.
And lets be clear, 400 - 500 Euros for a Game console, even here it wouldn't sell that well(One of the Reasons the Ps3 was on the beginning a fail even in the West).
At least the logic of the market economy would be that as more people buy, as cheaper u can make the product and this means more people can afford it.
wow, i feel a bit sorry for Korea, since they get their games Really late.
This was my same reaction. I thought i would turn into a scribblenauts all over again.
Eh, I'm pretty sure it costed about 300 dollars about 3 years ago. But it makes sense, some stores here tend to sell things at really high prices. I saw a GC game costing 70 dollars in a store 1 year ago.
The PS3 costed about 1200 dollars when it launched here. Now it costs around 750 dollars. X360s costed around 1200 dollars when it launched too (not sure about that one.). Today, they have confirmed that the 4GB Slim X360 will cost around 400 dollars.
Taxes + Corruption = Piracy.
They didn't get Korean voice actors for this version...did they?
