Wow, I just received a press release from Microsoft South Africa about the Christmas bundles and I am impressed.
We had heard about the Forza 2 / Marvel bundles already and I didn’t think twice that we may actually be getting anything better. Well we did, straight from the press release
Available from Friday 2nd November, includes an Xbox 360 Pro video game system and four hit games (Forza Motorsport 2, Fifa 08, WWE 08 and Viva Pinata, all top selling titles from Microsoft Game Studios) for an incredible estimated retail price of R3,999.00. This is an incredible saving of just under R1,700.00 for South African families.
That is a seriously good deal and will be a very tempting offer for the Christmas rush. You now have the choice between a 360 premium with 4 great games for R4000, or a Wii with 1 game and an extra controller for R4000 or a PS3 40GB model for R4500 with no games.
Now lets wait for Sony’s and Nintendo’s answer….
A little birdie has also told me to look out for another Microsoft press release today, I have a feeling we will be getting the Xbox 360 Arcade bundle as well..
