The install base of the PlayStation 4 has just gone over 40,000, and there are over 300,000 PlayStation 3 consoles in South Africa. That’s the word from Mario Dos Santos, CEO of Ster-Kinekor Entertainment."
A man thinks it's only really news if PS4 isn't leading a country lol
Isn't the uncommon generally more newsworthy than the common?
lol I was thinking the same thing
Over 9000! http://youtu.be/SiMHTK15Pik
Well I'm really glad I got this interesting and highly valuable information before I head off to bed >.>
Nobody held a gun to your head and forced you to read it... If they did, congrats - you were probably held at gunpoint by kaz
lmao held at gunpoint by kaz
This site gets a reasonably amount of South African readers. I'm one of them. It always interests me to know what's going on in our local community. But when I read "OVER 9000" I honestly thought they were referring to the local price of a PS4 because they wouldn't be far off.
I agree mate I'm still waiting for a price drop or something . Cheapest is R 5900 now . Also the 500 gig hardrive is a bit small I believe. I it went over 9000 would have been a problem.
Congrats on World Domination Sony. Keep destroying the competition. Love it. :^)
South africa... aha Maybe somebody can post numbers from the philipines? Its also an important market!
Kind of like how Spain, Germany, France, Italy etc are unimportant markets. When combined they can provide an important level of sales. So in the end South Africa is an important market. It might not be as big as the US but it still contributes to Sonys global success.
As a South African myself, I approve this post.
Thank god the bone is killing it in ''important markets'' like here in the U.S.for example.......oh wait....
Lol nice one:)
So glad people are finally understanding that the available markets argument wasn't really valid.
I would probably go so far as to say that ours is the most developed African gaming community. We have our own national gaming expo, we support local eSports, we even have our own national dedicated gaming retail chain and our independent game dev community is currently valued in the millions (Remember Broforce?) If you came to South Africa, the biggest difference you'd notice as a gamer is the low end internet you have to put up with and a severe lack of local servers.
As if it isn't leading the important markets. Troll elsewhere we get plenty of Americas and Europe news
Dude I'm from South Africa . Gaming is gaming I still own my old N64 and had a Ps1 in 1996. :) Trust me it's an pretty expensive hobby over here and as a gamer worth every sent.
I would like to congratulate Sony :)
Playstation is the chosen console of the world.
Not really surprising. Ever since the PS1, Sony has dominated the market in SA, Xbone was never going to challenge the PS4.
Think last gen the Xbox360 did really well here though
Maybe in terms of having some sales but stats shown at Rage last year showed that the 360 only had 25% of the SA market before the PS4 launched, Wii-U had less than 10% with the rest going to the PS3 after the initial serge from the Wii which was by the end of last year almost none existent.
HOWZIT! I wonder why the guy on the right is saying his A's different than usual. Most South Africans say South Effrica.
Dude for a sec I almost thought the dude on the left was Vin Diesel. LOL
