Consoles and games prices reduced in sales specials

Local retailers open deals on games, hardware and consoles

SA news Mass Effect

South African retailers have presented gaming specials and deals in an attempt to keep prices reasonable for SA consumers.

Regarding the recent Rand fluctuations, MassMart (Game, DionWired, Makro) explained that price increases will be the last resort over any other solution for the retailers.

“Typically in this environment both retailers and suppliers alike are hesitant to move pricing upwards and will only do so when all other options have been exhausted,” said a Mass Discounters spokesperson. “Suppliers will be expected to absorb some of the effect and retailers would do the same and so ultimately consumers will typically not see the real or full impact of the currency weakness in the final retail pricing.”

Makro “build-a-console” special

For the arrival of August, local South African retailer has launched the “build a bundle” special.

Running until 7 August 2013, the special allows consumers to put together their own gaming bundle from a number of select products, peripherals and games.

Gamers can choose a console pack, add a peripheral and throw in another game, with an overall standard price set by Makro.

The special allows gamers to choose and pick the bundle they actually want and gives some options in terms of games.

The bundle deals are applicable to the PS3 and Xbox 360 packs.
