Xbox 360 to see Brazilian Launch Next Month

FIFA Soccer 07

You heard it right – Microsoft’s console is set to release in Brazil next month for a whopping $1399 (hopefully that’s in Reais – Brazil’s currency). Supposedly, the reason for the high price lies with Brazilian tax laws, but this is a bold initiative from MS, due to the fact that neither Sony or Nintendo has launched there as of yet.

Some additional facts regarding games and the world’s 5th most populated country:
* Games will cost $79 (R$169)
* Analysts believe the 360 can sell 11 million units in Brazil (tall order)
* Brazil ranked 15 in the world for console sales
* Microsoft will spend twice as much on publicity in Brazil as it did for its Mexico 360 launch

This is a smart move on their part, because not only do they get first-mover’s advantage, they’ll very probably get a lot of brand recognition for being the first console to launch “officially” in the region.

Since Fifa 07 seems like a shoe-in (really, why wouldn’t they launch Fifa with the console? That’d be nuts), inquiring minds want to know: Will there be a localized version of Gears of War in Brazil?

    Dental tourism is not always a good option. Along with the cost savings on the treatment, you should also consider the time required as well as the number of visitations needed for your specific case. Sometimes, travel costs may outweigh the potential savings in which case it makes dental tourism not worthwhile. If you need braces, for example, which require frequent adjustment by your orthodontist, it may be a better idea to seek help at home unless you live close to the border and your dental clinic in Mexico is at a 30-minute ride. The dental tourism destination you choose can also be a major factor in how much you are able to save. So though you may want to get a quick dental bleaching while you are on a holiday to Turkey, you may not want to go there especially for teeth whitening. Again you wouldn’t normally want to pack your bags and head down to Mexico for your half yearly dental cleaning costing less than a hundred dollars at home. But, when you need major dental work like full mouth reconstruction or jaw surgery, dental tourism to India can save you thousands of dollars. If you have to get a couple of small and big dental procedures done at the same time, like dental bonding, root canal treatment or gum treatment, tooth contouring and reshaping, dental fillings composite and smile designing, it may pay to get your dental work abroad. http://www.dentaldestinationsdds.com

    You can use a wet cloth to help get some of it off and then brush what is left . If you have trouble getting the adhesive out you may be using too much or even a stronger one than you need . Super polygrip is probably the strongest one and fixodent is about medium according to how well your dentures fit the medium hold will breakdown and need to be reapplied very often if you have used a less hold type and that was the case you probably need the stronger one and unfortunately they hold better but are a pain to clean out .They have some cloths at the walmart pharmacy in our area that are suppose to help with this .I work in a dental office but havent heard if it is worth the money or not .If you try them let me know how well they work .One other thing you might try the pads that you trim to the shape of your denture some people like them some dont .GOOD LUCK
