    Something tells me Ster Kinekor is riddled with incompetent employees.

  • UltimateNinjaPandaDudeGuy

    Yeah definitely in their gaming department… Movie department seems to be doing better really. Upgrades etc… Releases are at least closer to the international releases…

    Who cares? PS4 is an under-powered, over-hyped piece of trash and anyone who pre-ordered the damn thing is a damn fool. You are gullible suckers for allowing Ster-Kinekor to charge whatever the hell they want and you will still buy it. Bring on da Xbox One, a real next-gen console aww yeah!

    Get out from under your rock!
    Only reason you have an xbox is to increase your 200+ copied games collection!
    The “TV” things on the xbone wont work in SA and you need activate your console online before you can use it and it is $100 (+- R1000 excluding tax etc) more expensive…
    But I am sure you can take your blinkers off and google a bit :p

    on special currently on the PS Store

    Multichoice confirmed the TV things are compatible months ago. And I make so much money in being a good Catholic nun that I don’t care. I’m sending the bill to the parish anyway so please donate more.

  • Helldriver Phoenix

    On what PSN region is that Japes? It’s the normal price currently.

  • Helldriver Phoenix

    You must be a little boy or something

  • Japes
