Kalahari has updated their price on the PS4 to R6,299.
The retailer explained that the originally listed price of R5,799 was an error.
Online retailer Kalahari has opened its pre-orders for the Playstation 4, pricing Sony’s upcoming console at R5,799.00.
Kalahari has noted that the stock is very limited for the PS4.
Also mentioned was that the specific bundle offers have not been confirmed as this time. Furthermore, if the Day 1 offer on a bundle changes, then the pre-order will change to the renewed bundle automatically.
The launch date and price is still subject to change, but customers who pre-order now will pay the “lower price” that’s currently being offered.
The arrival date of the PS4 pre-order states 6 December 2013.
After the SA pricing and launch date was announced last week, local retailers reacted to the news.
Mario Dos Santos, CEO of Ster Kinekor Entertainment, said in a press statement on 21 August 2013 that he is confident the PS4 will arrive in South Africa before Christmas, with an expected retail price of R6,299.
“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.
