Makes the PS4 accessible to hundreds of millions, Persian and Urdu also use the Arabic alphabet.

Edit: why is the text disconnectd, it doesn't work like in Roman alphabet.

i dont think it has ever been rumored, but it has been one of the most requested by the community for many years.
It's cool if it happens cause arabic speaking countries are a big part of the PS fanbase. More and more AAA games are also including arabic language.


I was hoping not to not get the notorious mistake. The I opened the link. Not only the arabic letters are disconnected but also in the opposite way, just like evry game when it uses arabic letters (BF3 is the most famous example). Really, why won't they hire specialized people? Google transklate not gonna help them.

I'm surprised that Ps4 didn't already have this I guess better late than never.

The # is correctly written. But the words on the top are written backwards and they say "your biggest request soon" and they are non-cursive. In Arabic we only write in cursive since it becomes easier to read that way. I don't know if that was a mistake or they meant to so that. But I'm glad they are finally adding Arabic


No, it is a very common and sad mistake, look my comment above.
