No SA Football Kit for your Xbox Live Avatar. Here’s a Red Card, Microsoft.

1 min read


Last Week, Microsoft’s UK man on the inside, Aceybongos tweeted that the official World Cup kits were to become available on Xbox Live. That’s a pretty cool way of getting your Xbox Live Avatar part of the World Cup excitement and digitally support your team.

Later, he confirmed that as well as the official England home and away kits, those of Brazil, Holland, France, Spain, Italy, Australia, New Zealand and German official kits would also make their way to the service. See the problem?

Once again, South Africa has been completely ignored – despite the fact that we’re hosting the tournament. Yes, I know we’ don’t have official live support – something that’s been promised for about 4 years now – but would it really be that much trouble to include kits for the other countries that are in the tournament?

Especially when one of them is the goddamned host?


Thanks to Milesh for the tip

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.
