So all this talk of next gen, I’m sure you’ve been wondering what your poor wallet should be expecting? Microsoft finally reveal the pricing of their next generation console.
So what are the magical numbers? According to Microsoft, you can expect to pay around $499 or £429 to be a part of the next generation. Those numbers are crazy, even in dollars and pounds. The dollar for example, broke the R10 mark recently. That’s already R5k for the console overseas. Throw in our usual mark up when the console hits South African shores, and we are possibly looking at around anywhere from R5800-R6800 (those are just some estimates).
So what do you think? Are you willing to fork out that much for the new Xbox? Or will you wait for the price to come down in the years to come?
