Ster Kinekor Entertainment (SKE) on 12 March 2014 confirmed new price points for the PlayStation 4 consoles and its accessories.

SKE also said that an additional shipment of PlayStation 4 units has arrived in SA and a consistent supply of consoles can be expected.
“It’s been a challenging few months liaising with our global teams to ensure that the South African PlayStation 4 console demands have been met to satisfactory levels. As expected the team has been working hard with our international colleagues to ensure that the inflow of units will be regulated and remain consist for the foreseeable future,” said Mario Dos Santos, Chief Executive Office of Ster Kinekor Entertainment.
“Retailer support is imperative to the success of these units. We are thrilled to announce that PlayStation 4 accessories will now also be available through retailers from this week.”
Previously SKE confirmed that due to the weakening rand-dollar exchange, the PS4 would see a price increase from its launch point of R6,299, although at the time a new price was not confirmed.
“As a result of the continued weakening of the Rand against major currencies we have had no alternative but to increase the price of the recently launched PS4 console. We have made every effort to minimise the impact of the Rand devaluation and will continue in our efforts to make the PS4 and other formats as affordable as possible,” SKE stated previously.
