Xbox One available for pre-order in SA

Local retailers have opened up pre-orders for Microsoft’s Xbox One, which is set to launch on 23 September 2014.

Technophiles and gamers can now pre-order the Xbox One console from BT Games, Takealot.com, Dion Wired and other retailers.

The standard 500GB console without Kinect and a single controller will sell for R6,299, while the addition of a Kinect will set you back R7,999 for the total package.

The console will be sold in two bundles, each offering two free bundled games (digital copies) and a free 14-day Xbox Live Gold trial.
