The Argentinian Playstation 4 price is insane

In anal intrusive news, the Playstation 4 is going to be expensive. Right now, the average price for one of those consoles locally will set you back around R6300, which is quite a few grinning Randelas. But when it comes to price, Argentina is getting the real short end of the stick here.

Thanks to the fact that the Argentinian economy took what could only be technically referred to as a Tombstone Piledriver from the top rope, a Playstation 4 would set your average citizen back a whopping $1137/ 6500 Pesos on launch day, according to NeoGAF.

Converted, thatโ€™s R11 387. And eight cents.

And considering that the average Argentinian makes only $10 000 a year, some kids are going to have one kak Christmas this year when reality hits them. Oh well, at least they have a decent rugby side.

Snicker.

    Hate to say this, but according to stats, the average South African earns below R90 000 a year, so paying R6 300 for a PS4 here isn’t cheap either.

      Is that the average South Africans, or the average Salary for South Africans? First one – Yes I am awesome! Second one – wow, I am skewing the average!

      The worst thing about that average is that I’m guessing it’s also skewed because of higher earners & that way more people than just 50% earn under that.

    I was in Argentina 2 weeks ago. Their inflation rate according to a local is 40%. Also, our exchange rate is pretty flipping poo, takes R2 to make 1 peso!
