The PS4 is finally going to be cheaper in Brazil

Sony plans to slash the high cost of the PS4 in Brazil by partnering with a local manufacturer to build consoles for the region.

As reported by IGN Brazil, Flextronics will assemble PS4s in the Manaus Free Trade Zone. It is hoped this will reduce the price of the console for consumers, as Sony will no longer have to pay high import tariffs.

The taxes are so high in fact, that Sony has been selling the PS4 for around 1,000. The Brazil-manufactured consoles will go on sale in October, though no price details have been revealed.
