Ster-Kinekor, official distributors of all things PlayStation related, have already confirmed the release date and pricing of Sony’s new console, the PlayStation 4. If you’re one of the many buyers willing to splash out the set price of R6,299.00 for the next-gen console on the 13th December 2013, the decision may not have been that hard to make, wanting to be part of the first wave to experience the PS4 in your living rooms. For many others, the price may seem a bit too steep at this point, opting instead to give it a miss on your Xmas list this year. Still, it could be worse. Forbes has assembled a price list from around the world to compare what some countries have to contend with to own the new hardware.
South Americans may be looking elsewhere to purchase their consoles, with the price of a PS4 starting at $1850 and $1115 for Brazil and Argentina, respectively. The price point in South Africa is about half way up the list, which isn’t all that bad, all things considered. Besides, if you were truly looking to save on your purchase, you can always place your order in the States or Canada, bearing in mind the quite ridiculous shipping prices of late. Happy shopping!
