PSA: Grab an Xbox One for cheap at Takealot

Takealot X1 sale

We know that gaming is expensive. It’s something we all love and see value in, but sometimes it can seriously hurt our wallets. As such, we try to let you know when you can save money – sometimes with special sales on digital games, or in this case, an amazing deal for an Xbox One.

Takealot has daily deals going on. I suppose it’s because people should be doing holiday shopping, and today’s deal is really rather impressive. They are offering the Xbox One console (500GB hard drive, obviously) with an extra controller and a copy of Forza Horizon 2. Normally, this would retail for R6 799, but today you can grab it for R5 399. That’s cheaper than the console on its own at RRP (Recommended Retail Price), so if you’re looking to pick up an Xbox One, this really is an excellent price.

Obviously it’s only while stocks last, so if you’re looking to grab it, you should click the link ASAP.

    If you’re thinking about getting one you better decide quickly, they’ve sold 16 in the last 25 minutes or so. Only 50-odd left.

            Really enjoying it actually. Interface is more sensible than the PS4 imo and I’m loving Halo again so all good. Forza 5 is amazing as well, too much of my time, sigh

    Why is only the xbox one on special? why not the very popular ps4? why are they only selling the one console which happens to not be selling well and publishers ahve been crippling AAA titles so sake of grafics parity so the under powered xbox one has a chance?
