MyGaming Ed: The following article is courtesy of The Deal Breaker, a website dedicated to rounding up the latest online deals for games in South Africa.
The 3 retailers offering all 3 versions of Transformers: Fall of Cybertron at the cheapest pre-order prices are Kalahari, Takealot and Infinite Games. The SA release date is Friday, 24 August 2012.
There aren’t any Metacritic scores for Transformers: Fall of Cybertron yet, but if “War for Cybertron” is anything to go by, this follow-up is going to be a game worth playing, especially if you’re an old-school Transformers fan.
Looking at the retailers, if you’re getting the game delivered to you, Kalahari or Takealot would be the way to go for the console versions. However, if you’re able to collect from Infinite Games, it might be worth trying them out.
For the PC version, as far as delivery goes, Takealot is a clear winner as their price just qualifies the game for free delivery. Again, if you’re going to collect, give the fairly new store Infinite Games a try. They’re situated in Norkem Park, Gauteng, and right now they have the PC version for just R240 on pre-order.
Following is a table of retailers and prices. Feel free to use it as a guide when deciding which retailer to order from.

One last thing. Not to influence your decision but if you order from Kalahari or Loot, we will get a small cut of the sale for us referring you to them.
