Earlier today we posted that game prices will be seeing a hike as of the 27th of October. While we were worried that games may be seeing as much as R850 per title, it looks like we might be able to relax a little bit.
South African distributor Megarom have seen the article and have sent me a price list of the titles that will be releasing after that date and I can happily say that while the price increase will still happen, we won’t likely be seeing the prices that we feared.
Prices and more after the jump.
From what I have seen on this price list, there will be no standard titles that will exceed the R699 mark.
Here is a list of some of the big titles coming from Megarom. If any other distributors would like to clarify any of there RRP’s please feel free to mail me at [email protected]
End of October:
James Bond – Quantum of Solace: R679
Fallout 3 – R679.00
Legendary – R679.00
Tom Clancy’s End War – R699.00
Call of Duty: World at War – R679.00
Guitar Hero World Tour – Standalone Game – R679.00
Shaun White Snowboarding – R699.00
Naruto – The Broken Bond – R699.00
Prince of Persia – R699.00
So there you have it folks, while the prices are going up, they are at least not going to be going up to what we had feared which is a bit less of a kick in the pants from the economic crisis.
Also, many people are reporting to us that preorder prices are not looking like they are going to be locked down at all in most cases, so be advised.
