Arcade confirmed for South Africa

1 min read

I just received another press release from Microsoft and they have finally confirmed the arrival of the Xbox 360 Arcade in South Africa.

This should be available to buy from this Friday and is basically the core model with a wireless controller, 256Mb memory card and 5 Arcade games bundled in.

The games are PAC-MAN Championship Edition,? (NAMCO BANDAI Games), ?Uno,? ?Luxor 2,? ?Boom Boom Rocket? (Electronic Arts), and ?Feeding Frenzy.?

However there seems to be another two games being bundled, according to the press release Project Gotham Racing Classic and Dead or Alive Classic will also be bundled.

I can only presume they mean PGR3 and DOA4, if they do then once again this is quite a good deal for the more casual gamers.

[Update] Microsoft has confirmed they are actually the first games in the series. PGR1 and DOA1… I don’t think I have actually played either. Microsoft have re-confirmed that it is actually Dead or Alive 4 and Project Gotham Racing 3 retail version bundled with this console.

It will retail for the standard price of R2699 R2999 so once again no price cuts but 2 full retail games, 5 arcade games and a memory card for free. That’s about R1200 saving right there (when you consider the upgraded controller as well)

[Update] Changed the price after receiving updated info from Microsoft
