Brazil already has it's own PSN Store, and the other countries you list are already part of the different regions Playstation Stores. Despite the popular gamer belief, it's not as easy as flipping a switch. There's copyright laws, value added taxes, exchange rates, licensing, even currency laws that have to be negotiated. In many countries it is illeagal to send money outside it's respective borders. In many countries it wouldn't be profitable to have a Playstation Store in one country, which is why several countries are often grouped together. If they did it your way, it may actually cost you MORE with exchange rates, and banking fees.
