It's good to finally receive XB1 in this region. I already purchased it last dec, Day one edition for 3200 Dhs. I wish it will be successful and has even better sales than 360 and p3 so it can compete with ps4.

The way it's transformed since it's launch by constant updates over last few months has made it even better than ps4. Which till date hasn't' had any major update and even lesser games.
