Incredible Connection launching Xbox One midnight in South Africa

The never-ending wait for the Xbox One ceases tonight, at least if Incredible Connection has anything to do about it. The South African technology retailer will launch the console at midnight, 23 September at 17 selected stores across the country, for one hour.

In the wee hours of tomorrow morning, the retailer will award the first ten buyers of the “must have” Xbox One bundle at each store, a R1000 voucher each, as well as a 10% discount on any other item they desire in store (excluding the Xbox One, of course).

The announcement comes just hours before the machine is officially available in South Africa, after nearly 10 months of waiting. “Being one of the first retailers in South Africa to launch the Xbox one console, we pride ourselves as being the leaders in the market and thus a destination of choice for all technology needs,” says Selvan Naidoo, Marketing Executive at Incredible Connection.

Stores participating include:

Clearwater Mall, Cresta, Rosebank, The Glen, Sandton, Eastgate Mall, East Rand Mall, Menlyn Mall, Canal Walk Shopping Centre, Centurion, Gateway Mall, The Pavillion, V & A Waterfront, Cavendish, Somerset Mall and Nelspruit.
