SA Gaming News Wrap


Well, that was a surprisingly quiet week in gaming around South Africa. We may of course have missed something, so feel free to let us know then.

Trenchtown FIFA 14 Tournament

Last night was a special one for the regular (basically weekly) gaming night at Trenchtown. It didn’t just have one, or two, or even three platforms featuring FIFA 14… it had four. Well, five actually if you include the real football on TV. On display and in use were the usual suspects – Xbox 360 and PS3 – along with newcomer PS4, and special guest, the Xbox One.

The tournament played out over the Xbox 360 and PS4, with the PS3 almost forgotten among the new arrivals, while the Xbox One was there for an opportunity to just try it out (thanks to FLS’s Beanibility).

The tournament eventually saw the Xbox 360 winner, Yazeed Dollie, take on the PS4 winner, Mubeen Gaffoor in a home and away final which Mubeen took 3-2 on aggregate with all goal coming in the final leg on the PS4.

Photos from the evening are up on our Facebook Page.
