PSA: There’s Now A Way To Get An Xbox One Locally This Year
Well, to be fair, there’s always been a way to get your Xbox One console this year via some rather expensive and non-assuring methods from online retailers abroad, but one locally retailer wants to make the entire process a lot easier, and safer, for South African consumers.
The guys over at Phoenix Tech have taken it upon themselves to import Xbox One consoles and sell them locally, completely circumventing Microsoft’s completely idiocracy with their launch country line-up. Not that the money goes elsewhere, but still.

Currently you can order that standard edition of the Xbox One, which will set you back R6999.90, while a separate edition that comes with an extra controller will be R100 extra. Which makes no logical sense, but you can’t really be picky in this type of situation.
The website currently lists the delivery date as the 25th of November, which is just a few days after the console’s official release date. The reason for this is that Phoenix will only recieve stock from either the UK or Germany a few days after the release, after which their main concern will be getting to customers as quickly as possible.
Of course, there are cheaper ways to get an Xbox One here before Christmas, but this is by far the easiest and safest way yet. Kudos to the guys at Phoenix for take full advantage of Microsoft’s mishaps here, and making a sweet profit in the process. I already know of a few people that have placed orders, so if you want one you better act quickly.
