You might have noticed a bit of a ruckus on local social media and gaming websites about the price for an Xbox One in South Africa. Local retailer AWX posted a pre-order price of R7,100.00 for an Xbox One. The price was picked up by website ITF Gaming and even found its way onto N4G. Local Xbox PR Manager Graeme Selvan has since fired off a statement to the rest of us local press. Here’s what he has to say: “The South African price point and release date for the Xbox One has not been confirmed as of yet. Furthermore, the price point featured on AWX was a placeholder for the product, it has not come down from Xbox South Africa. We will release relevant pricing and release dates when we have them.
