Local 60GB Xbox 360 Release date and price leaked

Yes we are getting the 60GB Xbox 360 in South Africa.

While Microsoft hasn’t announced anything (that I have received) I have been reliably informed by my secret sauce… or is that source, that the new 60GB Xbox 360 is going to hit retails shelves next Friday the 15th of August.

With sightings popping up all over the world of these new 60GB boxes it has become apparent that Microsoft are once again undertaking a soft launch to try and not cannibalise to many of it’s current 20GB sales.

Speaking of which I just did a quick spin through the local shops and have seen that BTGames, ZAPS and Take2 all still have the 20GB for R2999 or there abouts.

Oh before I forget the new price for the Xbox 360 60GB is R2999…

In the words of the great Marcus Fenix… Niiiccceee

    I feel bad for the misinformed people that’s currently buying the 20gb.

  • Lupus

    Yeah they should rather wait till the 60 comes out, how much is it going to be just for the HDD though?

  • in the words of eddie murphy… “Mother F#$%$%$ !

  • Kennedy

    You guys are talking smack today. 60 gig is not due for another month. 😈 But I can’t wait for it.

  • RivaZA

    Arrrg, now I feel ripped off. I just bought my 360….in November 2006 🙂

  • w00t w00t! 😀

  • Speaking about prices. . ,you know.overseas all of their game prices are locked at 60$,why does your average new release PS3 game sell for R650,but MGS4 sells for nearly R780? And,all of a sudden,PS3 games used to be more or less R100 more expensive than 360 games (fifa08,smackdown vs raw,COD4 etc) but now their the same? (soul calibur4)

  • LazySAGamer

    Might not be due but my secret retail source has never been wrong 😉

  • According to MAjor Nelson, there is no “street date” for the 60Gb, ie, they make it to market as they do.

  • alternate

    It’s the 15th and I see no 60GB 360s 🙁

  • Ory

    So is the 60GB xbox360 now available anywhere in SA?

  • Ory

    Oh wait, Take2 says it’s expected in September, we’ll see…
