    There’s definitely margin being made , typical margin on consoles is around 3% normally , but at the current pricing/exchange rate ratio, we are definitely being ripped off

    Blame MS South Africa for contracting the Xbox Service out to a Business Partner. Same applies with Apple to Core. And Sony and whomever Sony is selling through. The big companies couldn't give a damn about the prices as long as they are making profit. They do away with all the headaches that come with having to run the business yourself: Payroll, storage, shipping, repairs and concern themselves only with profit. I think maybe MS Xbox South Africa possibly have a marketing team so as to keep it looking like they are running the ship here. Having business partners comes at a huge expense to us +30% cost (or more) on the items. It is ridiculous, esp. when considering that our earning in real terms is far, far lower than someone in the UK or US. A console to the average US gamer is far, far cheaper for their salaries than it is to ours. This is the cost of using business partners to run your business for you.

    It’s not just the consoles that are overpriced even the SA digital store cost more than USA store, surely MS can control this.

    Resident Evil Village cost R1300 in SA but the USA store has it for $50. Cost just over R700.

    Cyberpunk 2077 was also going for under R800 on the US store but her in SA it cost over 1K.

    Yes I know you can change your region but it’s just annoying having to change. Surely as a 3rd world county we should get the same prices that Brazil gets if MS really cares.

    What I don't get is that ms have a good foothold in the country. It would be so much better to do it in house.
