It's about friggin' time Sony starts looking at Brazil as a serious market for gaming! Even though I live in Portugal, I'm Brazilian and I can tell you it is much harder to be a gamer and support original products there. In the PS1/PS2 days, everyone had chipped consoles and bought pirated games because the games used to cost a fortune and were downright hard to find. The situation is changing and more and more people are preferring to buy original games instead of pirating them, which is very good for the industry AND for the Brazilian market. It is very clear that the mind frame is changing for both consumers and the gaming industry, There are still some problems, though, namely the heavy taxes that the Brazilian government imposes on games and consoles. But the future is sure looking bright for us Brazilian gamers. :-)

@get2sammyb This is the chorus from one single team, this is not a representative part from our country as a comemoration!

And I dont even cant say what team is on the video... The flags are too generic, probably some second division team from a small city! Lol!

But seriously, we dont use this kind of spanic comemoration here. Sometimes you can see a team or another, but not at all a habit!

PS: Its not a critic, I am just trying to make ppl over the world understand more about my beloved country!
