The Xbox 360 official website has been launched for South Africa at http://www.xbox.com/en-ZA/.
The site keeps South African consumers who are eagerly awaiting the September 30 launch up to date on all aspects of the console, along with news, views and forums. This is the only official website and will carry trustworthy news direct from the source.
I have found the correct SA site without you having to fart around on the USA site, then go international etc. etc. When will these people learn?
You do have to download a 1Meg Flash Video which doesn't tell you much, so fast forward past that. I tried, but then the link sent me to the UK site, GREAT!. You actually HAVE to sit through the download and watch it to get to the SA site.
Once in, the page tells you how long have 'till release in SA, at time of writing you have 22 days, 15 hours and 55 minutes to wait. Will we wait in ques like they do in Japan and the US? I doubt it.
You can't seem to order on-line yet, but if you have a look around this page, there are some Google Ads where people are saying that you can pre-order, so make use of them if you can. There is a list of stores where you can purchase the XBox 360, click here...
