Why the Local Xbox Marketplace is Empty

Today is the first day that Xbox Live is officially available from South Africa. The migration process has been pretty smooth for most – except for the jarring realisation that beyond a handful of arcade titles and add-ons, the ZA store is pretty barren. Yesterday, we had a brief chat with Head of Product Marketing for Xbox Live in the EMEA regions, Robin Burrowes who explained why. The South African Xbox live marketplace is...

Sell your used games on kalahari.net

Unfortunately the reality of being a gamer these days means that it’s virtually impossible to afford every single brand new title that gets released and as such we have a huge second hand game market in South Africa. But unless you have been living under a rock for the past 1 000 years you would also know that trading games on forums is risky and retailers aren’t the most generous institutions when it comes to trading in used...

Bad Company 2 MP Demo Is Available On XBL Now!

Battlefield fans rejoice! The multiplayer demo for Bad Company 2 is officially available to download right now for the Xbox 360 on Xbox Live. Some local tweets informed me that the demo is apparently only up on the US marketplace but I have found a direct link to the Xbox.com Marketplace and it seems to be scheduling up just fine. We will have to see if it will block the actual Xbox for any reason and we will try to update as soon as...

Left 4 Dead 2 Demo is available

The moment of reckoning has arrived, the Left 4 Dead 2 demo has landed on the Xbox Live Marketplace and we all now get the chance to see if it’s really worthy of being a sequel or is it purely a cash in that should have been DLC? The demo clocks in at over 2Gb so it’s not for the feint hearted but seeing as this demo is multiplayer enabled and could really be viewed as a mini arcade title all by itself I would say it’s worth the...

Avatar Items On The Marketplace For Those With $$$

The new Xbox Live/Summer Dashboard update has spurned some serious debates even before it was released. But as you all should have already known by now, the marketplace includes an Avatar Market which allows you to buy some expanded gear for your digital self. In other words if by some miracle despite the global economic state of the world, you have some extra ZA Rands to burn or singe then here’s some cool stuff you can spend...
