The previous RRP stood at R6299 but will subsequently drop to R5499, which now means that Microsoft’s console undercuts the Sony PlayStation 4 by around R300.

Hepplewhite was also swift to point out the console’s upcoming features, including backward compatibility which will allow gamers to play select Xbox 360 games on the console, and the list of exclusives that are due out “before Christmas.” These include Rise of the Tomb Raider, Halo 5: Guardians and Forza Motorsport 6.

The console will be available at “BT Games, CNA, Dion Wired, Game, Toys R US,, Musica, Games4u, and Animeworx.”
