Games now available on South African iTunes Store

Apple has finally opened up the Games category on the South African iTunes Store. Locals have been requesting the feature for a long time now, it was only a matter of time before opened up the games market in South Africa. 

South African iTunes

The listing includes popular titles like Plants vs Zombies, Angry Birds, Real Racing 3, and more. Clicking on the links for those games shows their information pages inside the browser, along with rand pricing for the games and/or their in-game purchases. Clicking on a purchase button in the web browser loads the game’s purchase page in iTunes, from where it is possible to purchase the game.

Visiting the App Store from iTunes or from your iPhone or iPad’s App Store will not show a games section. However, searching for games from iTunes or from the App Store on your iOS device will return results. We were able to find a handful of games, including the latest Angry Birds title, Angry Birds Star Wars 2. It is listed for R7.99.

Using a South African iTunes account is now a great option for many and the idea of having to create a US or UK iTunes account is no longer needed.

If you want to keep your US and UK iTunes account you can purchase Gift Cards from getitunesgiftcard.com. The US and UK iTunes account still offer access to more Movies, TV Shows and apps that are still not available in the South Africa iTunes store.

Movies now available in SA iTunes Store

Apple have opened up the Movies section in the South African iTunes Store. Interestingly they have called it “Films.” We are not sure if this is significant or not.

Most of the Movies are Disney Production and we all know that Apple and Disney have a strong relationship after Steve Jobs sold Pixar to Disney and become the biggest shareholder with 7%.

The pricing seems reasonable with the buying of HD and SD at an exchange rate of about $1=R8, when compared to the US iTuens Store. The renting of movies however is a different story with the rate at about $1=R10.

No one expect the prices to be better but we have to say that it is still a better option to get a US iTunes account. The number of movies in limited in the SA iTunes Store unlike the US iTunes Store.
