South-Africa’s favorite Playstation dedicated gaming site is turning one and here is everything we know.

ZAPA started out as a Facebook group dedicated to SA PlayStation enthusiasts. The group now has 6,200 members and is a hub for all who love the PlayStation. Members can find friends to “Jam” with or ask advice on any number of PS related issues, it is essentially a community of like-minded gamers who all have a passion for PS in all its forms.

There is also an eye-catching website dedicated to everything PlayStation that was started by founding member DJ Huysamen with the help of his three co-founders on the 25th of June 2019.

Stemming from their love of PlayStation, they set out to create a platform for PS fans. The site includes a retail store where you can purchase all your PS merchandise and peripherals.

ZAPA aims to cater to all “Zapanites” and their gaming needs.
