    I've seen the new R6799 price on Takealot already. All these price hikes are seriously depressing. I was hoping for a cheaper generation than the PS3's was, but I guess it's only the US that is getting that

    surprised it took so long. the Rand has been doing badly for a while now. also, do not expect the prices to come down one the Rand improves... this damage could be very long term

    Such wonderful news for a friday (coupled with everything else like the tax that we'll have to pay for digital purchases too).
    I guess our biggest fear should be with the rand weakening even further instead of getting stronger again - kinda hard to be an optimist right now though.

    Unlikely imo. I doubt its going to weak further...pretty sure its going to stay at the current [email protected] rate for a while though. Prepare to pay a fortune for your rigs going forward...

    Also...the above assumes no politicians open their mouth and say something ridiculously stupid. Not the safest of assumptions tbh
