thats 480$.

note that we do not pay Tax. so thats the full ammount we pay. my US Import PS4 is 440$ tax included. so its really something like 40$ more.
So the price is pretty good then, especially the Killzone bundle, nice. Enjoy your PS4's KSAGAF.

Saudi's dont be playing with their money. One of them could scratch their ass and pay for a PS4 with the change that falls out.

Make it rain

Global saturation at its finest? just how many consoles are Sony making this year?

They must have some damn good yields to launch in so many countries.

I just hope they don't have shortage. I'm going to attend my friends birthday in January and would love to pick one up at Duty Free Shopping at the airport for good times sake. (here's hoping the prices in Dubai are in parity with Saudi).

Why do you want to know?!
Surprised that it is that cheap which is a really good thing and only 2 weeks after EU although it might sell out to scalpers and overpricers (even over there, sadly)...

Man, if you only people knew that it is nowhere near this kind of thing. I guess I shouldn't drive this into OT.

I like the sheikh looking guy sitting in the front. You can tell he's ready.
That's just the normal traditional Saudi clothing. A sheikh would look somewhat different from that especially in Saudi Arabia.

the PS4 is going to cost 1699 AED in dubai ($462 us dollars), so it's slightly cheaper there(the UAE doesn't tax as far as i think), anyway great pricing on sony's part. i remember the PS3 costing around $800-$1000 when it launched.

Considering the quantities that sell will probably be small it's probably no big deal provided that small amount won't be missed elsewhere.
the PS3 sold around a million units in saudi arabia alone, that significant when the population there is only 1/60 of the united states. gaming there is a lot bigger than you think.

It's impressive Sony can get the PS4 out in the Middle East this year.
Well considering that other story about Foxconn forcing engineering students to build PS4's, I don't think "impressive" is the word to use.

Which is why I'm not going to be one of those tooting the horn of hurrah at the fact that Sony is making more units even though I'm still buying one.

Japan: Feb. 22
