Makro – Catering to, and For Gamers

1 min read


An e-mail found its way in to my mailbox this morning that caught me pleasantly by surprise. We all know that PC gamers are hermits who lock themselves in their houses, shunning sunlight and the outside world, right? What better way to entice them in to stores to buy games than to bundle those games with delicious sustenance?

Makro have in fact done just that, and you can get two of this year’s best games to date in tasty combos. Check it out, after the jump.


Pick up either Mass Effect 2 with a 4 pack of Red Bull, a Margherita oven Pizza and a slab of chocolate for R379; or BioShock 2, a 4 pack of Monster Energy Drink, the pizza and a bag of cheese curls. Perfect for those long-night gaming sessions!

These specials only pertain to the PC versions of each game – but I think it’s a fantastic idea that I’d like to see more of. Now we just need Mr Delivery to start delivering games – and I may never need to leave the house again. Hey! don’t you judge me..I am lazy, after all.

    They supposed to sell these games together with something for the wife or girlfriend , then we won’t get so much crap for buying them.

    I always liked makro, nowhere else can you buy a 5kg jar of peanut butter as an awesome gag gift.

    Should we not maybe feel a little annoyed that we as gamers are being stereotyped as energy drinking, pizza loving, cheese puff consuming freaks?

    Or is it more ashamed since they pretty much have us all spot on 😛

    :biggrin: The stereotype’s a little insulting but I bet this was successful.

    Though I’m a little confused, Makro’s a wholesale outlet, I wouldn’t have thought they’d have offers like this. It kind of sounds like something that an ordinary supermarket might do but not a wholesalers.
