You need to be a serious gamer to blow R6k+ on a gaming console.

This is a MyBB article, so shouldn't be blocked (MyGaming is also blocked at my office...).
Oh, sorry. I don't even bother to click the link to an article if its related to gaming because I assume its on mygaming.co.za :D

Wait for it to come to CNA/Edgars and buy it on your account - pay it over 3 months interest free

I think....

Why is the Sony PS4 500GB + extra controller + free game from Phoneix-Tech priced at R6,599? Does one get something else along with the free game?

As opposed to PC gamers who blow more on a rig, and then proceed to upgrade every couple of years?

R6k might be steep for a console, but if you consider inflation then it's similarly priced to the last generation consoles when they were released.

Yes but they say free game

You pay extra to have a promotional bundle, the extras is Free in this regard… Although nothing is Free... It is like purchasing a 3GB internet bundle but you receive 2GB Free... Marketing (with terms & conditions).

Hmmm ok. Using your analogy, this is similar to someone advertising as follows:
3GB = R200
3GB + 2GB free = R300

Phoenix Tech want the money upfront(i.e with your pre/backorder) - dealbreaker for me
