Kalahari.com is selling a packed Xbox One pre-order for R7 699; that’s R1400 more than the basic model but it has a lot more to offer:

  • Xbox One 500GB console
  • Two wireless controllers
  • HDMI cable
  • Chat headset
  • 14-day trial of Xbox Live Gold
  • FIFA 15 (download token)
  • Forza 5 (download token)
  • Ryse: Son of Rome
  • Dead Rising 3

Since the entry-level package you get for R6 299 includes just one wireless controller (another will cost you R799 at retail) and only two games (Forza 5 and FIFA 15), and Ryse and Dead Rising 3 can be pre-ordered for R525 each from BTGames, you’re getting an extra R1849’s worth of goodies for R1400, saving yourself R449.

Quantities are limited – Kalahari’s order page says only 90 are available so you may have to be quick about it.

Deon got his first taste of PC gaming at the tender age of 11 when his father bought an 8088 XT, ostensibly to "help him with his homework". Instead, it introduced him to Leisure Suit Larry, King Graham, Sonny Bonds and many more, and Deon has been a PC gamer and hardware enthusiast ever since. He landed his first professional writing gig in 2006 at a prestigious local PC magazine, a very happy happenstance as he got to write for a living about things he loves - tech, PCs, gaming, and everything in between. He's been writing about it all ever since, and loves every minute of it.
