Kalahari’s PS4 special

Before Kalahari has its big merger with Takealot at the April, the online retailer has adjusted its Playstation 4 price, giving you just enough time to order one of you want to jump on one of Kalahari’s last good deals.

Kalahari has just lowered the price of its 500GB Playstation 4 console and DualShock 4 from R5,999 to R5,799 โ€“ saving you R200.

This isnโ€™t the first time the online retailer has done this, as the price originally dropped to R5,299 for a limited time during a gaming sale.

Some gamers were holding off on buying a current-gen console, but with some great games like Bloodborne, Mortal Kombat X, and GTA V now on PS4, it’s definitely worth looking at.

If a PS4 is more you choice, there is a bundle on offer which includes the 500GB console, two DualShock 4 controllers, two games (Mortal Kombat X and Injustice: Gods Among Us), and a temporary tattoo sleeve, because… why not.

Both bundle prices are valid until 27 April.

    I really really need to stop reading this post. Last time it got me into trouble as I did buy Mortal Kombat X for R649.

      Haha, sorry, but you’re welcome at the same time ๐Ÿ˜› The deals every week are hard to ignore. And hopefully heading into the big release season we’ll see some epic bundles and specials on games.

    I hardly see saving R200 on a ps4 as a win. R500 or more yes but R200 is unconvincing. I really want to get one but I am a less than casual gamer. The last time I played a game was in December and then before that was probably the December before that. There are some really awesome looking games coming out that I would like to get around to.

      I think the R200 saving doesn’t look like much, but the original R5,999 price is pretty good already, so in total its a solid price.
