I’ve been in to gaming since a young age. Some of my first experiences were with the likes of the NES and the first DOS games on my dad’s Intel 80386, more commonly know as a 386. It’s been my favorite past time ever since. However I find myself battling to keep up with gaming because, unless you’ve been living under a rock, the price of gaming has skyrocketed in South Africa. The weak Rand has made a $60 game go from R300 – R400 a few years back to easily R800 – R1000 now. To put that in perspective, that’s 5-7% of the average South African person’s monthly salary per game.
Quite shocking isn’t it?
