Tomorrow, the Xbox One will be released in South Africa. Coming in at a full R500 lower than the local Recommended Retail Price of the PlayStation 4 and bundled with a game or two, it makes the local  console sales wars a little warmer. Players are able to jump in to the new generation and get a game for just R6299. Sony and Ster Kinekor have just upped the ante.

They’ve announced that you’ll now be able to purchase a PlayStation 4 from your favourite local retailer for the same RRP as the Xbox One. But it gets better. You’ll get a free game, too.

There are two bundles available for that sweet price, and here’s how they work – as lovingly excised straight from the press release:

If you’ve been waiting for that opportune moment to purchase a PlayStation 4 console at a great price, that time has come. Starting Monday, 22nd September 2014 and for a limited time only, you can pick up a PlayStation 4 for R6,299.99 PLUS receive a copy of action-adventure survival horror, The Last of Us Remastered – for FREE. This offer will end on Sunday, 5th October 2014.

In addition, you will also be able to purchase a PlayStation® 4 with a FREE copy of FIFA 15 for R6,299.99 when the game officially launches in South Africa on Friday, 26th September 2014. Offer ends Friday, 3rd October 2014.

So from today you’ll be able to pick up a PS4 and a copy of the The Last of Us Remastered as a pack in, which is a fantastic entry point for those who missed out on the game when it was a PS3 exclusive.

If you were on board to get an Xbox One because of the free copy of FIFA 15, your choice is now a little trickier, as you can get it as a freebie with a PS4 too.

Yikes. Well played, chaps. Well played.

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

    Yesssssssss…..drive the prices down!

  • Anon A Mouse

    The price is still about R6 000.00 too much for my budgetary allowance.

    • WarframedSquirrel

      I know how that feels lol

    • Marc O Polo

      getting a ps4 as a gift on the 3rd of next month… yes you may hate me now

  • Macethy

    Or you know, buy it second hand from someone for even cheaper…

  • Ryanza

    On Friday it will be the last of the tier 2 countries the Xbox One is launching. So let’s see if the Xbox One can now sell more consoles than the PS4.

    Or is there a tier 3 that I don’t know about. Tier 3 – people with no fucking internet.

    Don’t support DRM.

  • Hammersteyn

    Hmmmmm, FIFA or TLOU? Too bad FIFA is a console exclusive…. oh wait,it isn’t. Plus they’ll bring out FIFA till North Korea takes over the world and bans football

    • What is a FIFA?

      • Hammersteyn

        It’s a football game where you can do things like pick Leicester to beat ManU 5 -3. Oh wait, that happened this weekend didn’t it O_o

        • What are you saying?!

          • Hammersteyn

            You didn’t see the game?

          • Anon A Mouse

            It made the crap that Liverpool dished out almost palatable when I saw that, but none of the “top” teams covered themselves in glory this weekend.

          • Hammersteyn

            But still, for newly promoted Leicster to come from 2-1 down to win 3-5 is something special

          • Brady miaau

            Indeed, a result that was not going to be predicted before the game (score included, of course)

            Shows how shaky united confidence is. When ahead, they seemed ok, one setback and they seemed to collapse.

          • Nope. I don’t watch fairies rolling about on grass. TROLOLOLO!

          • Hammersteyn

            Hahaha

          • Weanerdog

            He actually was not joking when he asked about Fifa.

        • Trebzz

          I don’t like this comment so please delete it 🙁

          • Hammersteyn

            Hahaha sorry man.

          • How much will you give me?!

          • Trebzz

            R5 at rAge 😛

          • That won’t even buy a pint!

      • racity

        Football game soccer

  • So FIFA, or LOU? Erm, that’s a no brainer…

  • Truan Frames

    That’s still too much for such an outdated piece of hardware

    • MakeItLegal

      This !

      • Xcalibersa

        Shame

  • Trebzz

    Nice game to give away as well 😀 best of luck to Xbox releasing tomorrow in SA and those picking it up enjoy the stuff on offer.

  • Is there going to be a special release event that LG will be attending?

  • MakeItLegal

    i pre ordered fifa 15 for pc , the demo blew me away , i finally feel that its worth a purchase – havent bought fifa since Fifa 12 …. cant wait to invite the oaks over to play again 🙂 happy days

    on the Ps4 price , still miff that its R6000 or more , cant justify that with the prices of the games , and i hear plenty people complain about the ” Cheap rubber on the ps4 remote ” i will be picking up a Xone remote to compliment my 360 remote for fifa 15 for the boys

    Ps does any one know if my receiver for the 360 will work for the xone remote ? or do i need to use a usb micro to connect it ? 🙂

    • Ryanza

      Receiver won’t work with Xbox One controller on PC. Microsoft is going to release a Xbox One controller for PC but only with micro usb cable. No wireless news yet about wireless PC action.

      • MakeItLegal

        what ?really ? omg , making life difficult for no reason

        • Ryanza

          That’s Microsoft for you.

          • MakeItLegal

            makes no sense for me , both controllers prob use the same tech to speak to the bone ? anyways , still want the bone remote over the ps4 , i cant do cheap any more , have u seen the ps4 displays ? omg , remote’s look like Man U reputation at this point

      post removed..ster kenikoooor ?

  • Francois Swanepoel

    Noooo! I just bought my PS4 with Destiny on Friday!

  • rollingmol

    Pick & pay selling the console for R5999 and take a lot selling TLOU for R638 so it’s quiet a deal if you wanted to get TLOU anyway, but I stil think a 500 gig hardrive is to small . I’ll think about it when prices drop when a new model comes out or until I can’t wait anymore. Is the last of us Digital only?

    • Itsa me

      No, a physical copy for TLoU is also available.

      • rollingmol

        I mean for the R6299 deal?

        • Itsa me

          Oh, sorry, I misunderstood the question. I guess the R6299 deal is digital only. All these bundled deals are digital nowadays.

          • rollingmol

            No probs

  • FoxOneZA

    I knew SK will ride the PS4 wave and screw local gamers with special “taxes” until the Xbox One launches.
