2. Amazon allegedly "wont ship games to brazil." what??? Brazil is the largest country in south america. Population is just shy of 200 million (yep, two hundred million!). Sao Paulo (11m), Brasilia (2.6m)
3. "Oi Futuro Nave" sounds good – I wonder if Ireland could get Vodafone/Eircom/3/02 to cough up a suite of labs like this?
5. The comments at the bottom of the article paint a pretty damning picture of life, as a games consumer in Brazil. "local/domestic-use credit cards" that aren’t accepted by paypal???
This explains good part of the piracy: The ONLY way to have a legal game, is buy it, and pay the outrageous taxes (at least, if you are lucky, 60% of the game AND shipping prices summed. If you are unlucky, 273% of the game (without shipping) price + whatever tax on shipping itself.)
6. Steam, at present, are going unnoticed, but I wonder for how long that’ll last now that this article is out in the wild.
