Google has been giving South Africa some serious attention of late with the recent launch of Google Street View. Microsoft doesn’t seem to want to be left behind and has (according to the Bandwidth Blog) announced plans to officially launch Xbox Live in SA:
Microsoft has finally announced that SA will be getting Xbox Live within the next three months. A definite date was not given, but we can be assured it is before the end of September. This was of course hand in hand with the announcement of the “Kinect” peripheral (called “Project Natal” in the past) and the new Xbox 360, which is slimmer, shinier, quiter and better looking than the original Xbox 360.
