PlayStation Store, PlayStation Blog Officially Launched in Brazil

Mark Stanley's Avatar Posted by General Manager, Latin America


We have amazing news for our Brazilian fans: Today, Brazil becomes the second country in Latin America to enjoy digital content from PlayStation Network with the launch of PlayStation Store on the PS3. Starting today, PS3 users will gain access to the PlayStation Store to purchase and download nearly 200 pieces of digital content, including games, demos and PSone Classics, all without leaving the comfort of the living room couch. Purchases can be made using credit cards and prices are displayed in local currency, Brazilian Real. PlayStation Network pre-paid cards will soon be available at a variety of local retail stores, soon to be announced. Brazilian users will have the option to view the PlayStation Store in English or fully localized Brazilian Portuguese. New content will be added to the PlayStation Store weekly, beginning on August 2, including the addition of more downloadable PSP titles, so check back regularly.

And if that’s not enough, we are also announcing the launch of the PlayStation Brazil Blog, where Brazilian media and fans will find official news, and the PlayStation Brazil Website where all Brazilians will be able to access product information from the official source in real time.

Spread the word!

Its a great day for Brazilian gamers. I hope they get fair prices cause from what my Brazilian friends tell me, the only thing wrong with gaming in Brazil is Piracy & Prices. I hope they stretch their reaches to the Caribbean. This should also stretch to Vita when it launch, cause I think its gonna be a really successful platform from launch. Good job Sony, keep it up.

We appreciate it a lot, but what about SOCOM PRO???????????? European gamers get it for free on the store. American players get a code, but the brazilian edition doesn´t come with a code. PLEASE MAKE SOCOM PRO AVAILABLE FOR FREE IN THE BRAZILIAN STORE ASAP!!!!!!!!!!!

I am very happy with our Brazilian neighbors. I know there has been a lot of red tape going through this. Thanks Sony for sticking it out and for making a more dynamic and diverse community!

If this means one less nationality coming to our blog and griping about how it’s so unfair for them, then I’ll celebrate. We have enough home-grown whiners to fill up the blogs.

Now all we need is to give Japan and Korea a PS blog, if you guys didn’t know both of them have huge netizens in both of their respective country and I think they deserve a PS blog.

Kreutznaer said:

It’d be great if we could migrate accounts.

Piantino_145 said:

July 21st, 5:01 pm

finally! this is a hope for other countries seeking their inclusion in the PS Store, thanks SONY, I’ve always believed this day would come!!

Larvarj said:

July 21st, 5:08 pm

just one question: we will have PSN Cards here as well?

herbertcosta said:

July 21st, 5:09 pm

This is great! Finally the game companies are starting to realize that not only north america, europe and japan play games.
Well, an account migration would be awesome too, since almost every brazilian that has a PS3 created an account in another country, since there was no PSN STORE in Brazil. Microsoft offered a migration system when they launched the Xbox Live to the brazilian market, why can’t Sony do the same?

Also, why is the PS3 firmware only avaliable in european portuguese? European Portuguese is very different (unlike UK english and american english), and we can’t consider it the same language that we use to write, read and talk. Are you guys planning an update with brazilian portuguese on the ps3 menu also?

Heavenly_king said:

July 21st, 5:12 pm

how about a South American Store??

John-0204 said:

July 21st, 5:22 pm

Well…. I am brazilian, i’m using an american Acc with US adress and i am very glad to the PS Store and Blog have finally reached my country =)


i have spent over US$50 on my american account, still having some credits in it and i already conquered 14 platinum trophies in it, and i am not planing to create a new Acc so soon, and the prices still a little bit high, US$ 1 = R$ 2 in Brazil Store, i buy pre-paid cards of US$ 20 for R$ 30 where i get them, so a game like Assassin’s Creed 2 would cost me R$ 60, not R$ 80 like in Brazil Store

Well, congratulations for the job and thank you for our PS Store and Blog! I know… this story of prices is a little complicated when the word is brazil, the taxes and burocratics are a pain in the [DELETED] but thank you for the update and I hope someday the BR Store become like theu US or Euro \o/
