Wow, seems like Brazil got the short of the stick when it comes to the video game industry. Not only does the government prohibit almost any kind of controversial game, but they are ages behind the United States in technology and because of this, piracy is a common occurrence.
In Brazil, the PS2, has just been released! Yes, I said PlayStation TWO, not three! And guess what? It costs more than the PS3. It will be sold for 799 BRL, that's 461 USD, at the Sony Style store.
So, residents may not have to smuggle systems anymore...well, at those prices, they still might.
