Brazilians finally get *official* access to Playstation2

Here in the states we have the top pickins of some of the finest examples of gaming technology in the world. With the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 as prime examples of console gaming and of course any tricked out gaming rig taking the PC gaming spot. But there are places that aren’t quite as lucky. Take for instance Brazil which just three days ago (November 18th, 2009) received official means to sell the Playstation 2. Yes, that’s a 2 and not a 3. If you don’t remember, the Playstation 2 was released almost a decade ago back in the year 2000. It really isn’t that long ago yet in tech years it’s practically the time of the dinosaurs. While it’s fun to joke, it’s at least nice that Brazilians now have legal means to pick up Sony’s crowing beauty of the early millennium. The only thing that is a tad sour in this deal is the price: R$799. Equated to US dollars, it tips the scales at $460.56. Ouch! Considering that can now get you a PS3 and some games plus the fact that many Brazilians have gone around the law (I don’t blame them) and picked up a PS2 many years back means this new deal isn’t exactly a floodgate opener. Any Brazilians ready to pounce?
