The First Two Owners of a PS4 Outside the Industry Are from Dubai

Quite a few industry professionals have a PS4 by now, or at least a dev kit, but what about normal dudes? Looks like the first two PS4 consoles have found a warm home, and they have done so in Dubai.

As part of a contest during Game 13 Expo in Dubai, two lucky guys got their hands on the console early.

Wonder how long it takes them to get stolen.

Abriael1672d ago

considering that the crime rate in Dubai is very low, probably won't happen.

grassyknoll1672d ago

Very true. As much as I want a PS4, it's not worth possibly losing your hands for!

seanpitt231672d ago

Yes because everyone is rich there is no need to steal.

nirwanda1672d ago

I could still use the touch pad with a stump

Godlovesgamers1672d ago

Of course not, Dubai probably has the largest population of million and billionaires in the world.

Kleptic1672d ago (Edited 1672d ago )

^Shanghai has the highest population of millionaires per square the highest density...but Dubai is up there...

ShinMaster1672d ago (Edited 1672d ago )


Dumb comment.
Just because you're not rich, doesn't mean you would steal it, would you?

zeee1672d ago

No guys, it's true. I have been to Dubai and even though I can't stand the heat, it's gotta be one of the most safest places on planet earth. Seriously! You could walk with tons of Cash in broad-daylight and you won't feel scared.

But the heat!!! Oh dear lord! It's like summer in Vegas all the time!!! And I can't stand the way they show off their money there. I mean, yeah Ok, so you got oil and crapload of money. Stop flaunting!

Dagobert1671d ago

It's true. I mean they got a fucking place where theres a billion stores all selling gold and they're open until 23:00 with like only one security walking around. When I asked if it was safe the store owner told me he could leave the store unattended right now and no one would dare try to steal due to the consequences. It's pretty safe there.

0ut1awed1671d ago (Edited 1671d ago )

Slave labor is at all time high though.

That's how the place has really thrived.

pixelsword1671d ago

@ zeee:

I used to live in Arizona, and the first summer I was there it was the hottest summer they had in 17 years, with many days over 100, and a few days in the 110 range; so I would love to try Dubai.

[email protected] man, you are by far one of the most negative people on this site. Your avatar says it all I guess. It's Friday man, get it together.

Omran1672d ago (Edited 1672d ago )

you are stupid !
there is law in dubai
it is not like GTA so you
can steal what you want

it's not like that

gaelic_laoch1672d ago

That is exactly something someone who would steal one would think! ROFL

HolyDuck1672d ago (Edited 1672d ago )

28 Disagrees for a joke, oh dear. Lighten up.

Yes, I am a thief.

Brazz1672d ago (Edited 1672d ago )

i will give ya a bubble for this last comment. i laughed a lot because of your last comment, but face it, your 1st comment was immature, judgmental and stupid! lol
just joking, without personal offenses

grumpc1672d ago

I like my jokes funny usually...

malokevi1672d ago

It's the fact that your always so hung up on agrees/disagrees that keeps people coming back to disagree with you.

Learn to let go, brah.

Beastforlifenoob1672d ago

Your profile image makes you look like an immature kid and your joke was so stupid. If it said the first two owners of a ps4 outside the industry are from Norway you wouldn't have said anything. Also considering the United Arab Emirates is one of the safes countries in the world and considering the fact Dubai isn't blazing in debt as many other countries are there citizens are more relaxed and don't have to worry as much about their governemnts incompetence effecting their lives.

But you must likely care about none of that as you propably still live in your mothers basement.

Duckface is just trolling all articles, but never a Microsoft article....!!!

Millions of dollars rich arabs in DUBAI im sure they can buy ps4 under the table. i dont believe they won anything but paided for it in black market. Arabs dont play ps4 not worth having your hands cut off.
you right Abrial

that is the reason crime rate is very low in DUBAI no one want their hands cut off.

FlameBaitGod1672d ago

Um you do know that in Dubai crime is almost nonexistent right ? You know that they slice ur hand when u do a small crime and that's y you see how no 1 locks their cars or even have their car windows up.

nosferatuzodd1672d ago

lol lucky bastards news like this just get me depress..

solid_snake36561671d ago

@Kleptic here in America we have the highest number of obese people per square mile.

KonsoruMasuta1671d ago

But it is not the fattest country. Mexico recently took first place. America is #2.

Run_bare1671d ago

Have you been to Dubai, they are rich people there, they can ask Sony for PS4 if they want too.

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney1671d ago (Edited 1671d ago )

They are probably billionaires..

Hey friend, how bout I come over and hang out, maybe play some games...

Beastforlifenoob1672d ago

It was probs the 2 poorest in Dubai, they were the poor peasents who only got ferraris instead of Bentleys and got Ps4's instead of Ps5's. How sad for them.

mafiahajeri1671d ago

There are Hardly any emiratis living in Dubai, their all expats. And Dubai don't have that much oil. Abu Dhabi does. Dubai actually got bankrupt and Abu Dhabi had to help them out. Abu Dhabi are the ones that have oil. Dubai make their money by tax. They have a huge pier that a lot of boats pass by and pay tax.

The emirates basically translates to "the states"

They don't cut of your arms, for the ignorant guys above that's only in KSA.

fghtrer3fb5erg1672d ago

How about upload some videos of your ps4´s and show us the UI, etc!

Abriael1672d ago

bet you they had to sign some thick NDA afterwards.

fghtrer3fb5erg1672d ago

probably :( but sony wouldnt do that to their fans would they??? hopefully not!

Sharius1672d ago

true, but to be able these PS4s i can even sign the deal with evil

sevilha821672d ago

Not lucky,very very rich,pulling the strings rich,imagine who they have to know and socialize to get this...petrodollares for the win.

DragonKnight1672d ago

I think Gabriel Iglesias can explain how rich they are much better than any of us can.
