The console will make its debut in the South American country next month
Sony seeks to expand the reach of PlayStation throughout the Americas. For this reason, Carlos Paschoal, general manager of the brand in Brazil, announced that the PlayStation 4 Pro will arrive in that country very soon . Of course, this is good news for Brazilian players. However, there is a detail to take into account: the price of the console.
In case you do not know, Brazil has high fees in the video game sector. This causes the prices of both software and hardware to skyrocket. Paschoal said the console will arrive in the country next February 19 at a suggested price of $ 2999 BRL.
As analyst Daniel Ahmad points out, this amount of Brazilian reals is approximately $ 935 USD. This, in turn, translates to more or less $ 17,398 MXN in the current exchange rate.
According to a Kotaku report, the standard PlayStation 4 arrived in Brazil in 2013 with an approximate price of $ 1850 USD. So, PlayStation 4 Pro will be cheaper during its launch. The high rates are undoubtedly a problem for Brazilian players, who face a similar problem to acquire titles for their consoles.
Another example of this drawback in prices in Brazil is that of Nintendo, a company that closed operations in the country in 2015. Fortunately for the players in the region, the company confirmed that it returned to that market.
Remember that PlayStation 4 Pro is already available in Mexico officially for a suggested price of $ 10,999 MXN. At the end of 2017, Sony launched a special bundle to respond to the offer from Microsoft and Xbox One X. Here you will find all the information related to PlayStation 4 Pro.
