With the next-gen consoles having shown their hands at E3 2013, we were left only with pricing info for the USA, Canada, UK, and Europe. However, two local retailers – AWX and Phoenix Tech – have established South Africa pre-order pricing based on current exchange rates.

AWX has set the pre-order price for the PlayStation 4 console at a tentative R5,899, while the Xbox One is sitting at a staggering R7,299. Additionally the DualShock 4 and PlayStation Eye have a pre-order price of R849 and R799 respectively, while AWX also list the new Xbox One wireless controller at R799.

A representative of AWX said that the listed price is an estimation based on UK pound / Rand exchange rates. The final price for South Africa is yet to be confirmed. This is indicated on their product pages.

AWX said that those who pre-order won’t be charged, and this is to register their interest in the products as there will be limited stock at launch. Should prices change upwards or downwards, pre-orders customers will be notified accordingly.

AWX said that some customers have already paid to secure their console. Should prices drop, customers will receive a refund or credit. Should prices increase, customers will be notified with the option to pay in the difference or cancel their order.

Phoenix Tech

Phoenix Tech lists pre-orders for the Xbox One at R6,999, and the PlayStation 4 at R5,999.

A representative of Phonix-Tech said that they are bringing in their console products through their European distributor, and so this isn’t an official SA price for the consoles.

Phoenix-Tech said that should customers place their order with them, they will have guaranteed receiving the console at the listed price, even if the price goes up. Should the pricing come down, then customers will be refunded the difference.
