Simon Munroe, AKA Delph1za, has posted his take on the whole SA Xbox Live saga over at www.delphi.co.za
While I don’t agree with his viewpoint that the Xbox is not entertaining without live he does make a very good point about the way that the Xbox 360 is being marketed and distributed in South Africa.
Is the person who is handling this market really a true gamer or just some office lackey who has progressed from selling windows to handling the Xbox… Gamers are a fickle bunch and if you don’t understand the gaming culture you have no chance.
I have personally met most of hte Ster Kinekor gaming team and can vouch for them being true gamers at heart, which could go a long way to explaining how the PlayStation brand does so well in South Africa…
Anyway follow the link below to read his posting and for now we will forgive him for being a Delphi fan 🙂
