Here in SA things take a little longer to happen , but hey at least we have a localized playstation store, but with a bandwidth cap of 2G per month cant download a hell of a lot. See you in 2010.

I just bought myself a Sony Bravia so it will be great if I can watch TV in HD as well. It's just good to see that HD is being developed in South Africa. We are relatively technology aware but the costs involved are pretty high. The exchange rate between the South African Rand and Dollar is 7 rand for 1 dollar but for some reason we multiply the dollar price of an xbox by 10 to get to the rand price in the shops.
