Jumbo to debut gold consoles at GAMES 14
Power retailer to unveil gold-plated PS4 and Xbox One at Dubai gaming expo
Power retailer Jumbo Electronics is set to premier the world's first gold Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles at the upcoming GAMES 14 expo in Dubai this weekend.
The consoles, created by Italian jeweller Gatti, feature rose gold cases and will be available for sale at the show. Jumbo said that the offerings were the most unique and valuable gaming consoles in the world.
"Available to both Xbox and PS4 fans, the high-end materials and exquisite detailing of the gold consoles make it a great collectible item for gamers who love luxury," said Nadeem Khanzadah, head of retail at Jumbo.
Running from 11 to 13 September at the Dubai World Trade Centre, the GAMES 14 expo is the biggest show of its kind in the Middle East, acting as a regional launch pad for some of the most anticipated games of the year. Sony and Microsoft will be present in full force as both attempt to coerce gamers towards next-gen consoles.
"With the Middle East gaming market estimated to be worth over $1bn according to Gartner, events such as GAMES 14 play a crucial role in connecting game developers, console manufacturers and vendor-partners with end-users, and help to leverage the growing potential of gaming in the region," said Khanzadah.
