PlayStation4 (PS4), the gaming console on which Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) has pinned high hopes, is expected to evoke a ‘very positive’ response in Qatar, a senior official said in Doha yesterday.
“PS4 will be released in at least one region across the world during the Western holiday season this year,” Robert Fisser, general manager, SCE (Middle East, Africa, Turkey and India), stated. But he declined to confirm if PS4 will be available in Qatar in Q1 2014.
“We are ahead of all our competitors, in terms of PS3 sales, whether it is in the region or in Qatar,” Fisser claimed, though he did not reveal any statistics in support.
The SCE official explained that PS4 is ‘not a successor’ to PS3, which has sold 70mn units globally, including 30mn in the PAL region comprising Middle East and North Africa, and there is ‘still a long future for PS3.’
“PS4, an addition to the PS family, like PSP and PS Vita, will offer a completely new gaming experience,” Fisser said.
