In what seems like something that should of happened a long time ago, Sony of America is branching out to cover the entire American continent. This finally gives PS3 and (eventually) PSN access to 13 different countries that Sony apparently ignored previously. These include:
Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Peru and Venezuela.
The PS3 will retail for various prices depending on which country you’re speaking of. No word on what took so long for this launch, but this will stop importers from jacking up the price on the PS3 which is reported to hit $2000. All of those sales should be considered illegal, as the imports have not passed proper RF inspections.
