It might be nine years late, but Sony has finally gotten around to releasing the PlayStation 2…in Brazil…for around $465. Not only is that almost five times the cost of a new PS2 here in the United States, but, as Edge Online reports, the games will cost between $55 and $66.
While I couldn’t be happier for all those Brazilian gamers who will now get the chance to experience some of the greatest games ever made for the first time, that price tag will clearly put the console beyond the reach of many potential purchasers. On the plus side, Brazil’s already thriving piracy business is about to have a fantastic holiday season.
