Brazil has some crazy high video game import taxes, where the PS4 will cost $1850. Yes, nearly two thousand dollars! It launches in Brazil on November 29, but if you wanted to save yourself some money, you could purchase the Xbox One which is only going to cost $1016, or so. The Brazil branch of Sony has said that the high cost of the PS4 in Brazil is made up of around 60-70% in import fees and taxes, which represents a hefty $1292 in taxes alone, sheesh.
