It’s official – South Africans can now pre-order Microsoft’s much anticipated next-generation consoles – the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.
Pre-orders in South Africa opened on Tuesday, 22 September, 2020. The official US launch will be on 10 November, 2020, with international rollout expected soon thereafter.
Microsoft has billed the Xbox Series X as “the most powerful console ever.” The console delivers “four times the processing power of an Xbox One.”
Its performance is also “twice that of an Xbox One X and more than eight times the original Xbox One,” the company said in a blog earlier this month.
The recommended retail price for Xbox Series X in South Africa is R11,999, while that of Xbox Series S, the less powerful of the two, is R6,999.
