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

    Dafuq?! Must be nice...too bad they can't play any games yet!

    PS4News


    Quite a few industry professionals have a PS4 by now, or at least a dev kit, but what about normal dudes like you and me? Looks like the first two PS4 consoles have found a warm home, literally warm, as it happened in the Middle East, and more precisely in Dubai.
    As part of a contest during Game 13 Expo in Dubai, two lucky guys named Hamad Al Hai and Naji Riyadh got their hands on the console early, receiving it directly from SCEE President and CEO Jim Ryan, as you can check out from the grainy pictures below.
    It isnít even a ďgive me your name and Iíll send you the console at release dealĒ, they actually got the real thing. Lucky them? Thatís for sure. Unfortunately it doesnít seem that they received any games with the consoles, so it looks like they wonít be able to do much with them, at least for now.

    Even if sony officially dont launch it this year, it will be readily available in the gray market in dubai this christmas. i've been to dubai and there is a huge gray market for consoles, especially playstation. modded/chipped consoles are very common in this territory and those actually make up for more sales than officially released units do.

    The article has been updated and they don't even know if the console is actually in the box.
