Alot of the time, it was just part of being King. How do you justify to the peasant masses why you're king and they're not? Because a power higher than even you appointed you and your line to it. The Japanese were no different. Although, for much of their history, the Emperor has been little more than a highly respected cultural figure head, and everyone knew it. Real power was held by daimyos and later, shoguns, who "ruled in the Emperor's name." The Emperor is considered a god on earth, so even that is playing the divine mandate card.

King Arthur wrote:The Lady of the Lake, her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water, signifying by divine providence that I, Arthur, was to carry Excalibur. THAT is why I am your king.
Dennis the Peasant wrote:Listen, strange women lyin' in ponds distributin' swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.

Although everything in your post is completely correct, this is the first thing that jumped to my head.

Excellent. Maybe we'll get to play sometime. I had a match with SurgePox (who resides in California, while I reside 3000 miles or so to the east in Florida) and the lag wasn't too bad.

That's ok, I lost the tourney match to SurgePox, then played another member named Dobs, and lost every single match. Had a blast though.

My biggest problem is that Video Game stuff is absurdly overpriced here in Brazil...
If you convert the price of a Wii in the US to the local currency, you see that Wiis over here actually cost 4x what they were supposed to.

eBay?

Buy it from someone here and have them ship it over. It'd still cost a lot, but certainly not four times as much.

I love eBay.

Well... I'm still thinking what is the best thing to do on this matter, and I have to analyze every possibility cautiously... But thanks for the suggestion anyways! ^^

Wiis are $1000 in Brazil? Shit. They were like $600+ in Australia and I thought that was a lot.

If you mean "one thousand dollars", yes, it would be around that... which is worth 2000 Reais (OUR currency).

Yup... Neither do I. I don't even care, actually. XD
I know only one person that has a PS3... and that is my nephew. (His father is freaking rich ¬¬)
I never asked him how much it cost...

And yes, things do suck for gaming in Australia

I am most sympathetic to you guys. But hey, at least your getting Disaster: Day of Crisis. I've been looking foreward to that since it was first announced.

I live in NSW. But Since we only have like 3 game shops there wasn't much of a price range.
I'd say that that was the Original price of the Wii. But when I bout Mine, it was a Bundle which included a free game (Wasn't much on offer so I chose WarioWare.)
