Dubai: Crowds flocked to Dubai Mall games stores to get their hands on the PlayStation 4, Sony’s new gaming console, which went on sale at midnight on Thursday.

“The crowd is much bigger than we anticipated across all our five stores,” Nadeem Khanzadah, head of retail at Jumbo Electronics said.

He said Jumbo expects to run out of stocks by Friday evening.

Geekay Games was expected to open its outlets at 11pm but the Dubai Mall outlet was opened only at midnight.

Many were seen crowding outside Emax, Geekay Games, Sharaf DG and Virgin Megastore.

Key retailers have registered more than 4,300 in pre-orders for the fourth-generation device. More info
