Proof that America is not the world in gaming.

I saw a similar scenario with GT5 in the Middle East

Only in the US & UK media is there so much hate for Sony PlayStation which is rather sad.

As you can see this is PlayStation's market:
no toddlers, no soccer mom's, no Just Dancers, no girls, no booth babes, no 5 year olds trapped in a 25 year old's body, in the video.

Just gamers & games.

Sony PlayStation has been loyal to this demographic since 1994.For 15 years Sony who has succeeded in taking away that kiddie image from video games and transformed it into a more mature & legitimate form of adult entertainment.

Wow, that's intense! I hope no-one got hurt at all.

r212821d ago

Damn! If they were gonna make it free, how did they not expect thousands and thousands of gamers to flock to it XD

PS3PWNSALL2821d ago (Edited 2821d ago )

because as shown in the beginning of the video it usually isn't that crazy.... maybe its a good sign for gaming though....

With all the doom and gloom articles people keep making when not realizing gaming has become bigger then ever before so when gaming isn't doing good as a previous year .. aka some of its biggest financial years ever... it doesn't mean that the industry is doing bad its just going through peaks and valleys like every other generation just more publicized now.... we have 3 healthy consoles and still a good amount of games being pushed out every month and looks like that will continue all the way up to the next systems.....

Gamers F*#% Yeah!

LOGICWINS2821d ago

LOL @ the long ass line for AC3 :D

vortis2821d ago

Admit it, you would have been in that line too if you had been there.

OOG2821d ago

GamerElite2821d ago

True story, man. True story

Blastoise2821d ago

I'd probably get annoyed, give up and just go home lol. That many people would drive me crazy

raWfodog2821d ago

I agree. I can't be in places with that many people crowded together.

I went to the gamestop expo in houston this year the lines werent that bad but they were annoying especially BLOPS 2. I actually couldnt play some of the games because of the lines but it was great to play so many games before evryone else! :D And alot of the people were kind enough to pass the controller to me when they saw me waiting not hogging it, gotta love gamers well most of them at least :P

This expo is a good sign for gaming in the Middle East there are alot of gamers here they mostly play FIFA and COD but their branching out to other genres.

The Middle East is no longer a niche market and can only mean more expos here in the future, which is GREAT! They wont have a problem selling tickets...
