Pedrooooooooooooooooooooooooo? Peeedroooo! Did you hear? Sony has FINALLY decided it was time to get the PSN to another Latin American country (first one was Mexico) as now Brazil has it’s own officially sanctioned PSN Store. What are the benefits of this? Well, Brazilian users can now use their brazilian credit cards to add funds to their wallets AND all prices will be displayed in the local currency (Brazilian Real) which should, in theory, drive up sales in the country considerably as import taxes on games reaaaaally drives up the price as a $60 release immediatly goes up to $90 or more and with all the great AAA releases in the next couple of months… well, it adds up and FAST.
Our Brazilian fans have much to rejoice as not having to buy US Store PSN Cards (which is a hassle since using their Brazilian Credit Cards for purchases outside of their country increases the final cost) is one less hurdle before being able to enjoy all the wonderful content available for their entertainment. Brazilian PSN Cards SHOULD be available soon for those that don’t have access to a credit card making it easier to make their most of their Sony console purchase.
As an extra bonus, there is now an OFFICIAL PS Blog just for Brazil! Follow THIS LINK to be on the up and up on all PS related news, promotions and releases. And what other great news await Brazilian fans once they go over to the official PS Blog for their country? Why, they’ll get a chance to download several games thanks to the Welcome Back Package!
