Pricing of the XBox

Microsoft Xbox 360 will have more than 50 game titles readily available when it launches on September 30 in South Africa, with a price tag to suit all pockets.

“Xbox 360 will be following an aggressive pricing strategy and consumer retail prices for the games will range from R199.00 for classic gaming titles, with a R499.00 ceiling price for triple A collectors editions,” said Cindy White, Microsoft Group Marketing Manager for Xbox 360.

The plethora of available games meets all tastes and includes Project Gotham Racing 3, Kameo and Perfect Dark Zero, Gears of War, Crackdown, Viva Pinata and Forza 2 which will be available early in the New Year.

“We have worked closely with our third party partners to keep pricing consistent across the board and the Xbox game pricing is aimed at attracting people within all gaming categories, from recreational players to serious gamers,” adds White.

“We believe that the range and the variety of the games will offer something for everyone and will enable South African’s to enjoy the new-generation gaming experience at all levels,” she concludes.

The games will be available at all the major retailers including Incredible Connection, CNA and Look and Listen from 30 September.
