Don't cry for me, Argentina

The PlayStation 4's launch price might seem steep to North American and European gamers, but it's nothing when compared to the value of the console in Argentina.

If you're based in the South American country then you'll be expected to hand over 6,500 Pesos for the console — that's around $1,200 / £760.

The price was revealed by a poster on NeoGAF, who commented that the amount is 25 percent more than his monthly earnings. Ouch.

Gaming site VG247 — which spotted the original post — explained that Argentina's economy is in deep trouble at present, with levels of inflation that are out of control.

You've clearly got to be very committed to be a gamer in that territory right now.
