It seems as though the Xbox One will be hitting wallets a lot harder than one would think. Recently, AWX launched its pre-order page; however, the price point is sitting at a whopping R7100/721.75 USD!
Truth be told, I was honestly expecting the console to come in at around R5000, but R7100 is just way above what everyday consumers can afford. We have contacted Microsoft for their official price point, and we are waiting for a reply.
Xbox’s South African PR Manager, Graeme Selvan, has officially stated that 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 has been confirmed as a placeholder for the product.
