    Saudi Arabia wants the XB1 the most out of any other region (according to Gamespot)

    http://www.thearabgamer.com/2013/06/...-one-most.html
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AOz6b...e_gdata_player



    You go practically anywhere on the internet and all hear is PS4 > Xbox One. With all this heat you'd think Microsoft wouldn't be able to catch a break, eh? Well, looks like one country actually wants it. According to Gamespot's nex-gen Twitter challenge, our close neighbors, Saudi Arabia, wants the Xbox One the most. In the entire planet. Bwah?!

    But come to think of it, this ain't a big shock. Xbox Live has long supported Saudi Arabia by including a store dedicated to that demographic. Games like Call of Duty and Battlefield are also extremely popular and given the fact that the Xbox One will be receiving early DLC for those games, well, that could tip the system a bit in their favor. Forza is also pretty popular ranking in more fans than the lack luster GT5.
    With that said, Saudi still wants the PS4 more than the Xbox One . But still, having to see a country that actually wants the black sheep of the next gen family is a feat on it's own.

    uuummmmm...Fried Beer iis a reality.

    ok Im a ps4 fanboy I'll admit it I love playstation. however, I am NOT a hater of Xbox as I respect EVERY advancement made by the consoles and the gaming industry as a whole. however, and maybe I'm just a weird thinker, but in that part of the world( and I don't mean to be racial or ethnic biased) they really desire fps's? it seems to me, that when you live in a part of the world where all that $#@! is going on around you, I would want to detach from the daily struggles and fears of that kind of $#@! and maybe play a racing game or an MMORPG?

    Exactly. Title should have been something like "Xbox One sees highest demand from Saudi Arabia, still not enough to take on the PS4, according to Gamspot's poll", or something.

    the smell of desperation...


    11k+ damn, gamespot is popular over there.

    Anyways, it doesn't matter too much if the buying trends(in these countries) are similar to those polls. The xbone seem to have done a lot of damage to the markets where they matter the most;UK and States.

    Destiny and Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor is all I need for the rest of the year.

    As of right now, F Destiny.

    I doubt Saudi Arabia wants the X1 as much as is being presented.

    That camera in their home always seeing and listening regardless of being disabled in the settings (as expressed by MS themselves) will highly unlikely sit well with a nation who keep their privacy to themselves and hold to it.

    Just sayin'.
    Gaming on all platforms right now.

    The title of the thread isn't misleading as its not stating that the XB1 is in higher demand than the PS4 in said country, it is only stating that the Saudis have a higher preorders percentage for XB1 when compared to other countries.

    This image from the link shows the title as being accurate. The title does not say that the Xbox One is the most wanted console. It says that of all the countries that want the Xbox One, Saudi Arabia wants it more than any other country.

    The title of the thread is misleading. The article itself is stating that.
