The PlayStation 4 console will be arriving in South Africa in December, and hopefully in time for a 6 December launch. The expected price is being pegged at R6,299.

Mario Dos Santos, Chief Executive Officer of Ster Kinekor Entertainment, said in a press statement that he is confident the PS4 will arrive in South Africa before Christmas.

“South Africa will be releasing the PS4 prior to Christmas, we are planned to go on the 6th of December 2013 due to the logistics of getting the stock to our shores,” said Dos Santos.

“The price point, although not officially set due to the uncertainty around the Rand exchange rate, is currently planned at an RRP of R6,299 including VAT and it will not be beyond this for launch. Retail will be communicated to plan at these levels,” said Dos Santos.

During their Gamescom 2013 presentation, Group CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment, Andrew House announced the launch date for the PlayStation 4.

PS4 will be hitting US shelves on 15 November 2013. In Europe, the PS4 will be available from 29 November.

The PS4 is pegged at US$399 in the United States. This is US$100 less than the Xbox One launch price of US$499. EU price points are typically set by retailers.

House said that the PS4 will be launching in 32 countries around the world in November.
