    Lightbulb Xbox live to launch in south africa on november 10th!

    We’re excited to share the news that Xbox LIVE, the premier online gaming destination, will launch in South Africa on November 10th 2010.

    Xbox LIVE is about building communities and connecting people to each other and to great content. The launch in South Africa is another step toward our vision for LIVE – to deliver the entertainment you want, shared with the people you care about, wherever you are in the world.

    The service in South Africa will focus first on delivering the core gaming and community features that have made Xbox LIVE the world’s premier online gaming destination. Play your favorite multiplayer games with friends on Xbox LIVE, rack up your Gamerscore and download the latest Xbox LIVE Arcade and Games on Demand titles in the comfort of your living room. You can even extend the life of your games by downloading the latest Game Add-ons, which include map packs, levels, characters and songs.

    With an Xbox 360 and broadband internet connection you can connect and join LIVE for free to access your personal profile with Gamerscore, Gamertag, and Avatar as well as the Xbox LIVE Games Marketplace, and free game demos. An upgrade to Xbox LIVE Gold membership will allow you to play games with your friends online, including great new Kinect titles, or video chat with Video Kinect. It also allows you to receive early access to content and exclusive Gold discounts. An Xbox LIVE Gold 12-month membership will be available for R599.

    We want everyone to jump in. For those with existing Xbox LIVE account for another region, you’ll be able to migrate to the local service and keep your Profile, Gamer Score, Achievements, Microsoft Points Balance and paid for Subscription time remaining. You can also keep all the downloaded content stored on your hard-drive such as your Avatar items, LIVE Arcade games and songs. For full details on account migration, please visit Xbox.com | Xbox LIVE

    You forget that we don't get paid in Korean...


    From R325 for 13 months to R600 for 12 is quite a jump...

    Happy if the migrating thing realises tho.

    I know there's another thread on this... anyway.. I was paying R450 for a year sub from the site I used - plus I got a free year sub from it! R50 a month ain't bad in any currency IMO. But yes, you would be paying almost double.

    All your questions answered here: Click -> Xbox LIVE South Africa FAQ.

    All I am going to do is renew my LIVE subscription at the end of the month and when I migrate my LIVE subscription is carried over and rounded up to the nearest month.

    Could even possibly do a 24 month subscription (2 x gold) giving me 26 months at the same price 1 gold subscription costs in SA when it launches.

    No, content already dl'ed to your console should be fine. It's only DLC that you purchased previously, but may have list and now need to re-download that will be a problem. At this point you cannot re-download them post migration.

    The exchange rate IS pretty decent
